Hi fairygirl. Thanks I always thought they wouldnt need as much water being twiggy little plants lol. It makes sense though being up in Scotland where it probably rains a lot.

Hi thanks for the replies. Liriodendron yes I was growing them in pots as I dont have a garden. Heard they were good for bumblebees. I think they might just not have gotten established enough like logan said. The seeds are of of erica carnea winter beauty though I also have some calluna seeds which I will try next year. The plants I bought were from a seller on ebay and I've never had any problems with the other plants I have bought from them. Its likely a case of me not watering them enough and them not getting established.

Hi stupid question, maybe, but does watering heather plants with hard tap water kill them? I keep losing the online bought heather plants. They go really dry and brown then just die. I put them in ericaceous compost so don't think that is the problem. Am growing some from seed and don't want to kill the little guys off.

Think you mean kalanchoe? Think they are succulents

Hello just looking to get these two plants identified. Have appeared in my pot.

What is this?

I think it might be a loquat (eriobotrya japonica).

Heather and hyacinth help.

Hi so I have got two problem plants at the moment that I could do with some help with.

I bought some plug plant heathers and they were all fine and healthy. I planted them together into a bigger pot and left on the outside windowsill. They get sunlight in the later afternoon/evening where they are and I have been watering them enough. The problem is they seem to be all dying now. Can anyone suggest anything to help them? Also is it better to grow them from seed and plant outside than buy plug plants?

The second problem is my hyacinth though it may just be dying down now. It was given to me by a friend as a rescue he found on the pavement as a bulb. It flowered ok earlier and grew bigger leaves. Now though it seems to be dying? I have it indoors in the kitchen where it gets sunlight in the late afternoon/evening time. If it is dying down should I leave the bulb in the pot or remove and plant when it comes out of dormancy again?
