I've had daffs for weeks now but lots look like they will be on time.

blind for me usually means shallow planting or comgestion. I plant much deeper than I used to and divide clumps every 2 or 3 years.

No expert on poo but fox or hedgehog I would guess.  Fox poo can really stink.  

Did it leave a tip then J2202?

Staking Acanthus

Posted: 30/01/2016 at 12:30

Sandyv, acanthus should support themselves....never known them to need staking.

first thought is where do you grow them?  Do you feed?  Is soil good and moist?  If so, not ideal. 

down here Acanthus thrive poor dry soil in the sun.  Then they are robust
