Lifting daffodils

Posted: 15/05/2014 at 22:19

If the foliage has completely dried off you can store the daffodils, but if the foliage is not completely, and I mean completely dried off you should replant the daffodils as they have not finished building themselves up for next year.

Oak seedlings to find a home

Could you do a bit of Urban Guerilla Gardening and infiltrate them into a local park.


Naughty, but Nice.

Lack of water is the usual cause.  Not today, yesterday, or necessarily last week, but that is usually the reason.

Crocks in Pots - A Waste of Time ?

Jillofalltrades, I hope you don't regret using polystyrene when you have to pick the bits out of the compost heap at some time in the future.  Drives me mad!

Sweet Corn

Toilet roll tubes can be used instead of pots.  I use RootTrainers for sweet corn.  Same difference!

New garden - tree roots everywhere

You can get a firm in to grind the stumps.  Otherwise the only thing is to dig out the roots and use weedkiller on the re-growth.

If you don't want to remove the roots, the only alternative is to make raised beds.

Ash seedlings get everywhere so I would advise anybody who finds a seedling ash in their gardens to remove it sooner rather than later.

We had a frost warning last night in Wales.  I am in West Wales and the latest frost I can remember in 30 years here was the night of 4 June.  Lots of people had to re-sow their runner beans.

Raised bed - rubble and topsoil mix?

If you rot the neighbour's fence you will end up replacing that at your expense.

yet another rude online retailer...

It is written in appalling English, but it doesn't strike me as very rude.  The seeds were £2.00; put it down to experience and be satisfied that you can avoid his site another time.

I'm sure you'll find another source for the seeds next year.  I have had non-germinating issues with big firms.  There are several I will never buy from again.
