HELLO FORKERS!

Just a quickie but pleased for you Punkdoc ...... hope things continue to improve there

The WUM ....we all know who he is and it's a shame there are still one or two supporting him..........but he's got an obsession with the number of views on his threads !    However, the rest of us can enjoy the forum

Cost of the hobby of gardening per year?.

Nemasys Vine Weevil Nematodes

Still feel Provado is the answer.  It's supposed to be effective for just a few weeks.  Can't see how it would affect bees if used now.  

Nematodes may be the lomg term solution but they can cause problems too....didn't they destroy a football pitch recently eating the grass roots?  

If weevil damage is allowed to continue until nematodes can be used in spring there won't be any plants left to save 

Wow! Sunshine at last.

Peonies have a reputation for hating being moved.  However, my experience is that they survive well enough so,  Stacey, I would move it into the sun, plant shallowly and mark with a cane.

Stacey, have a red peony shooting,,yes.  Since I replanted it a few years ago in full sun and slightly proud of,the soil it has produced stunning flowers.  Why?  Have you just cut it back?  I don't think you have killed it....all top growth dies back anyway.  

If you can get your money back and parkers allow you to keep seboldii, just pot it up and expect it to make something prob next year.....foliage that is, not flowers 

KEF, it's just a shame the WUM upsets you.  You need to use the ignore button cos he won't go away.  The rest of us are your friends 

Best time to buy hostas and other plants?

Posted: 16/02/2014 at 19:45

Hostafan, if it's your passion and your skill why not start your own business growing hostas?  

I used to grow  and sell tender perennials down here and did well.  A joint venture to grow larger scale floundered but if you have a niche market ...locally too....it could be a winner 

I prob have a mere 8 or so different varieties ....mmmmm, maybe few more.....and will now look up that Dutch nursery Hostafan to add a couple more
