Used growbags

Dago, a big false economy to use grow bags for a second year.  Why?  They are cheap. Best to use them as mulches...as already said 

Iris flowering - is this a problem

I have several clumps of tall iris flowering right now....unknown variety but pale blue.  Been flowering for a couple of weeks.  They just wont flower next month that's all 

Oh no.....NOT AGAIN

GG, no these plants are in a minimum 1litre size and pretty cheap too.  Always have great plants from them.  However, I will take your advice and open the "album of the fabulous things"..........I do have lots of photos of me

Well said and worth checking now Philippa.....I do the "gentle tug" thing on susceptible plants at this time of year.  Lots of nasties have enjoyed this winter.

LG, I think your holly will recover......hollies are pretty determined to grow.  

You want a lollipop.....not  offering sweets I hasten to add ......so I would take a lopper to it now to get a semblance of shape before new growth starts.  Wont look worse than it is now but in your head you know it will come good.

a generous feed and mulch too.

during the growing season just check on how it is performing.  Some shoots will prob be stronger than others.  

Oh no.....NOT AGAIN

Onion seeds

Yes, bring them in Valerie.  

If you have some spare seed I agree with Logan and would sow more 

Should see something by now....is your compost a little too wet?  Therefore cold?

I sow onion seed in late December
