late tulips

Posted: 12/01/2015 at 09:26

Any tulip planted now is likely to want to do its stuff. It lives off what is in the bulb and is programmed to reproduce itself. It may even hurry up, lest it misses its chance. nice experiment anyway. Give it a  go and feed it back. We will then award you a doctorate in tulipology, from the university of forkers.

I have just moved my Gertrude, Yvie, so glad to see your's is doing well. Mine was planted too close to a lilac years ago, which is what I do when I get excited!

Agapanthus experts seem to differ over whether crowding is good or not. My oldest and most congested pots are beginning to lose their flower power, and if they don't do as well this year I may hack them out and start again. I may need and axe.

I will always grow them in pots though. I bring the evergreen ones inside in winter and cover the deciduous types to keep dryish.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
