What's the best thing to do with daffodils when the flower has died

Posted: 31/03/2014 at 20:40

Exactly......and the sooner you remove the spent flower heads the better.  I've already started doing it. Good time to divide clumps too when foliage starts to whither.  Divided clumps flower better.

Lavender hedge

Just messaged you Rose

I would not mix but prefer to plant one variety.  It will look better either as a hedge or in blocks.  Munstead is hardier I think and better as a hedge for me but Hidcote as isolated plants lok nice because foliage is more silver.

No don't think any,lavendar is a "thug".  All need cutting back after flowering, quite hard in fact, and then they remain compact and good looking....like me 

Outside overwintered Geraniums

Have a few outside and they look good.....always leave some outside over winter here.  .  Yep, cut back but I would wait just a couple of weeks longer.  

HELLO FORKERS!

Been a pretty good day here today...some drizzle but mainly dry and warm.  

Plumbing done today so had to keep an eye on plumber and his mate.  It's the hanging around that drives me craaaaaaazy.  They never come on time do they? 

Keeping an eye on the weather forecast this week to see if the trend is continuing to be warm.  If so some plants will go out.  

Warching the final part of the Widower tonight.  What a lovely decent fellow he is   Must be hard for the families of those involved to see. 

Will dig up an old jasmine tomorrow and replace with clematis Grandiflora my fav of the Montanas.  white flowers and strongest scent.

A good wash and scrub with hot soapy water or simply buy another if it's too bad

I think I read somewhere that these flatworms carry a caustic "sap".  Anyone know if this is true?
