Philadelphus 'Mrs E.L. Robinson'

Posted: 03/05/2013 at 10:05

Philadelphus will grow in pots but already mentioNed.....the growth and flowering will not be as good.

If you can, Klink, I would try and find a spot in the garden for it asap.  It will grow much better and produce more and better flowers next year then for you.

I too have so many....plants in pots waiting to be planted.  Know I want them but they have to go in the right  Eventually they usually end up where I want them

Shouldnt say this, should I?  But......

.....we could use a little rain........

.Oops!  I'll get my coat

Planting Oriental and Regale lilies

Posted: 03/05/2013 at 09:53

Morning cottontail

This is exactly,what I doing now

My regale bulbs are large now and they are in 2 or 3 litre pots growing on until I find the exact spot to plant them.

Dont overwater but make sure they do not Out either.

With your new bulbs I would plant individually in 1 litre pots or 3 in these or slightly bigger pots half way down in the compost.  Plant out when you know where you want them. 

Those regale lilies have the most wonderful scent in June and July and look spectacular too

Yes you can dig them up, repot plant out, etc after flowering

Good Evening FORKERS

Andy....are these pelargoniums?   The indoor geraniums?  Have you just put them outside?

Do my Blueberries need feeding?

Hiya chicky

I would put them outside now.  However. If it works for you growing in the greenhouse that's fine.

I use fish blood n bone.....sparingly.....and top dress with ericaceous compost or acid bark.

 Been busy day one way or another.  Always try to look in on the forum to see what my friends here are saying though.

I guess it's not too seriously felt but many of us in Cornwall like to think we are indeed a country of our own...we local yokels are a bit simple!

tea bags

Posted: 02/05/2013 at 21:48

Open tea bags and use as a mulch for ericaceous plants

No I am sure tea bags do not attract ants
