Heather and hyacinth help.

Posted: 14/04/2016 at 14:56

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?

Hello can someone identify these plants please? The first one I bought recently and the guy said its st johns wort. Just wanted to double check.

The second one I would like to get but need to find the identity first.

You can get seeds from http://www.jungleseeds.co.uk/. I have one mahogany tree indoors that is nearly 7ft tall. It drops its leaves in the winter though.

Thanks. I think I will keep it indoors. Seems the flower spikes should be bigger though.

Hello I was given this bulb by a friend last year and I potted it up when it started signs of growth. Can any one identify it? The flowers have a pleasant fragrance. Just need to know how to look after it. Does it need to be in bigger pot? Can it be left outside?

Hi I have this plant which I had been growing inside but during the warm weather had placed outside on my windowsill. It has started forming flower buds but I don't know what it is. Does anyone know and how I should care for it?

Should I bring it in now?

Which is the best variety of sunflower for pollinators do you think?

Can you tell me which plant is this?
