LeadFarmer.  Looks good there.

 I love the purple sensation alliums.  I have those purple heads above daffodils, wallflowers and the hellebores in own garden.  You have reminded me to get some more 


Raised bed and breeding my own slugs!!

Red dahlia.  Best for now is to,pick them off. 

Nemaslug for the spring....possibly little late to use it now. ,

Paradoxically, slug pellets ATTRACT slugs n snails so lacing your ground with them  is prob counter productive.  Just a few strategically placed pellets is better value amd just as efficiemt.  If the raised bed is for food I would not use any poisons there.

Yes lily.  Happy again   

I too enjoy the paradise.  Not keen on the violence that tv seems to broadcast so much of

That mugger deserved his haul Dove.  Fancy attacking a mum and baby like that?  

Serious! Really

Matty, yes woottens really are,top notch.   ,I buy from Ashwoods too for hellebores but  woottens are excellent for those too.  I had a yellow variety last year...ordered it few months before for,sprimg delivery.  It came in a 5 litre instead of 3 litre because plant I wanted was unavailable in the smaller size.  Same price, just huge and wonderful flowers.  They tell you day before when it's coming.  No GC will sell that quality.

Allotment Max, send that crumble my way!  

Busy, not going anywhere it here

Orange Tree Care

My only experience of citrus is with lemons.  I,have a lemon tree that produces lemons.  My second year with it.

Ngcards, it looks like over watering to me.  Have you had it long?  Maybe its still adjusting to the move and change in conditions.  Amd agree with flowerimg rose, it won't like central heating if you have it on

Currently my lemon is outside in a pot and has thrived.  It enjoys being outside in the summer red spider for example....and indoors in winter.  Mine will stay outside for few weeks yet.  A citrus feed now and then but not too much water over winter I think. Lovely flower scent.  Nice lemons.
