Hunter tony, I agree totally that bluebells should not go into the garden unless in a wild spot somewhere.
They do invade, take over and spoil other plants
A friend has woodland with bluebells naturalising there with daffodils and,they look superb......but in that situation not a garden one

an experiment

Morning Brum
Can you unpack them?
My routine?
The packing system is very simple......remove plant from cardboard base...slides down
Admire flowers.
Place pot outside, water. Preferably place where you can see them from your window before planting.
They will not suffer from not being planted immediately....they have been in that state all their "lives"
Plant when you are able to give it best attention. Best to group them so they dont blow over
Do you like them Brum?

What plant is this please?

Oh! I meant to say I wasn't talking about me, of course. I'm asking for someone else. I'm far too serious, me, for such trivial things

Many years ago I had a realistic looking mannequin amongst my gooseberry bushes at top garden. I even added my shaved off,beard to his face and an old pair of glasses......such was my attention to him!!!!!! A topic of fun or irritation but couldnt ignore him. Over time "he" died. Ahhhhhhhh! Would love to get another. Asked at local shops, stores etc for them without success. Tried to topiaryise Taxus fastigiata imto a human figure but not,too good. Would love to get hold of a mannequin. Maybe make one myself. Is this gnome-like or "class"? Or am I regressing to my,childhood....childlLIKE ..days??? Where can I get another?
