Would have thought fresh cut bamboo is less likely to catch fire nut

Well,,it loves to grow in water anyway so a "moat" is good.  A rIng of copper pipe around the lobelia will help deter slugs n snails.

Go out with a torch at night and grab the critters there and then.

I have cut back on feeding this year....however I have sprayed tomatoes this year, before they,flowered, with milk amd Epsom salts.  Plus saweed spray.  The key difference this year.....thanks to,Italophile's that I have kept the foliage dry.  I am experiencing the biggest crop of tomatoes and the healthiest looking plants.

Indeedy chicky.  However Ashwoods and woottens are the experts.  Haylofts,the pretenders!!!

Fidget.  Just caught your post.  Those plants from hayloft are usually small.....offering in 3's ....that wont flower for year or two at the earliest.  Better to visit Ashwood or wootten for individual plants which will flower this year.   They won't send it to you until the spring but ??ou will have an impact plant when it does arrive

Yes....these websites take advantage sometimes with their pictures.  Until hellebores actually flower you don't really know what exact colour or shade you have.  I have hellebores like hantay but not as bright as that.  If Hantay is really like that we would all grab it. The best hybridisers are in the uk I think
