Summer Bulbs

From your list I only grow gladioli, sorry can't be of more help.

Most of the bulbs I grow are spring flowering and ideally should be planted in the autumn, with the exception of lilies and some aliums which I grow and these are potted up in March.

You've possibly planted them to late,and also some bulbs won't flower if not planted at the correct depth, I'm no expert though another poster maybe more helpful.

The summers not over yet and they may still flower

Gladioli aren't yet ready to flower, I'm no expert but the one's I grow won't flower until September time. If you have good strong growth there is nothing to worry about, mine are growing well but there isn't hint of a flower stem yet.

Fed up with the heat!

Hi, Wendy.

It would help to know which bulbs you planted.  

Today I feel so happy....

I've picked loads of veg today, most of it's still young and tender.

Every so pleased with the courgettes, green one's being picked, the yellow one's have just started to grow and I'm hoping the plant not yet showing anything are either round courgettes or squash lost the labels long ago      

Spent the best part of the afternoon on a sun lounger, in the shade, reading.

HELP! plant identifying its ruining my life

Hi, Holly...I have the same problem with a neighbours plant  Only this evening, I pulled yards of it off the roof of the shed but it's rapidly climbing up the side of the house. 

A couple of years ago I erected a 6ft high trellis, 1ft in front of the dividing fence, to both hide the fence and create a divide between the neighbours invasive climbers and my plants but the tenticles reach over, and given the chance would start to curl around the plants on the trellis   

If you find a solution please let us know.

Starting a veg garden

Posted: 11/07/2013 at 22:46

Hi, Inky,

Christmas spuds can also be planted now in potato bags and will be ready in late October. Usually they are left in their bags until Christmas long after the plant has died as the potatoes will keep in the compost but should be ready in October if planted in July, the longer left to plant though the less likely they are to grow to a reasonable size.   .
