Talkback: How to plant wallflowers

Posted: 03/11/2013 at 19:51

Don't  separate tulip bulbs Eve. ,plant them individually 5" or so deep.  Have your wallflowers flowered yet?  If not they will in spring.  Best to dig them up after flowering in spring and put something in their place for the summer.

Me too, Swiss sue.  I let cannas dry off if  I dig them up, usually leave some in the ground over winter.  My feelings that they are such large clumps.....well, mine are anyway.....that they have plenty of moisture in them. .....never water them, sorry to disagree with Monty.  Maybe his is a heated greenhouse though.

Know how desperate you feel mrs garden.

My sister gave her son a ring.....she died at 32 and he was 12.  We lost the ring on the beach.  We hired metal detectors and scoured every inch of that beach.  

Hope you find your diamond.  Maybe its on the floor somewhere?  Or in your clothes?

Fidget, I would love one of those.  What's the Latin name for it?    Core blimey, I'm a "stickler" for proper names.

I have some named  colours of wallflowers, as well as the mixed ones.  I plant these out in threes to make a really good impact.  In early spring they have united to form, seemingly, one plant about 4' or more across.  All pinched out, of course. 

Serious! Really

Gardeningfantic,  I loved Benny Hill.  Still crack his jokes   I remember my dad having a dog called Trigger and when benny  hill sang his famous "fastest milkman in the west" song he mentioned a horse called Trigger and our dog would shoot  his ears up.   He was a very funny comedian but, like many others, was a very sad man in his private life.
