HELLO FORKERS!

Hello forkers

Missed foodbank today.....other last minute commitment.  So, no donuts 

Funny old day....lovely morning. An hour of rain.  Then fine again.(sorry about that but any excuse to use smilies)

 Potted up osteospermum voltage yellow....the best yellow osteospermum by far......they havent stopped growing over the winter.   They are now in 1 litre pots.  Also pelargoniums, fuschias, linum perenne, and agastache.  Feels like spring when potting on.

Grafted Tomato Plants!

Well,,this is an old,thread and my opinion has changed.

Last year my tomatoes were excellent,disease free,,healthy, and plentiful.....ESP on the grafted plants.  However, I had great advice from Italophile on the forum here and, although I have been growing tomatoes for a few years, I have learned a lot this past year.  

Grafted tomatoes again for me this year......can plant them in greenhouse soil too.

Salino, I planted a forsythia in memory of family member for reasons you gave ....the right time of year, cheerful and reliable flowerimg.  It is planted in a memorial walk and underplanted  with early white daffodils, crocus etc   It may be a common plant but it is lovely

Ever the optimist Ceres. 

Know what you mean about the sighs and rustles.  A local river bank is planted with miscanthus and the sound in summed is, as ??ou say, "magical".   

Seriously, Jack, I would not plant them.  Monty Don did plant some up in large pots but I thought they looked odd and I doubt they will thrive.  I think bamboos need to feel plenty of soil around them to do well as well as lots of water.

Could you take them back to homebase?  If you have the pots amd receipt it's what I would do.  Say "unfit for purpose" as they are not clumping but running bamboos and therefore not appropriate for your garden.  I have no doubt you will get your money back....speak to the manager

Many of mine....and I grow quite a few.....are in the sun.  Keep them well watered in their first year and well mulched.  With plenty of goodness in the initial planting hole they should be fine in the sun.
