Talkback: How to force daffodil bulbs

Posted: Yesterday at 12:24
Hyacinths: They have to be specially prepared bulbs. Most catalogues have them.

Paperwhites take about 8 weeks from planting, I think.

You can do it with lots of bulbs. Reticulata Iris, grape hyacinths, Crocus, miniature daffodils for instance.

Didn't think you would stay away for long.

Do slug eat thru' carrier bags

Are you really permitted to put live slugs and snails in the rubbish?????????????

If you can't kill them (why not, it sounds really wimpy?) put them out on the road for the cars to deal with.

You will have to explain to me in words of one syllable why you are not permitted to kill them by her(?) indoors.

In my garden it's WAR!

I think most of us would ignore them. Certainly not spray them. They do little damage.

I think you should ask this question on a dedicated chicken website. Try Downsizer, maybe. There are smallholder/livestock message boards around.

Bored of my garden!

Perhaps you could change the colour scheme. The green obviously takes care of itself, but you can confine yourself to white flowers and purple foliage.

Do get yourself a greenhouse, you'll love it! As big as you can manage.

ladybird?

Surely ladybirds only bite if you put your finger in their mouths?

You will only get ticks if you wander in long grass with bare legs.

To feed or not to feed ???

They rely entirely on you for their food; maybe they exhausted the food in the pots long ago.

Raising Cedar Crown - Advice Please!

And me. If you do chop it, I would leave a bit of trunk to grow clematis or roses up.

Raising Cedar Crown - Advice Please!

If you look at it with a strangers eye I think you will agree it is all out of proportion for the garden and it really isn't very lovely. A cedar should really be grown as a specimen tree where it has space to be admired and spread itself.

I don't know how close it is to the house, but it must cast a lot of shade and limit what you can grow in the garden.
