i have 3 hyacinth bulbs in pot that I got as a present. they seem to have bolted and are drooping in full bloom. what can I do?
I planted daffodil, grape hyacinth and narcessi bulbs in October and they have all come up to almost 5cm in height given the good weather we experienced in November. Will they just die down naturally and reemerge with flowers in the springtime or is it too late now? A friend suggested that I should bring them into the house and they would flower now? But that means no spring flowers?
I saw something I've never seen before this week .. daffodils in full bloom! Is this usual?
Is it too soon to plant Allium giganteum? The packet says to delay setting as frost might get them if they come up too soon. also people tell me they are very hard to grow. Is this correct?
I have double begonias in pots outsidewhich are beginning to thin out & I believe these can be saved for next summer. How can I save these tubers until next spring/summer. Last year I just left them in their original pots in the shed but to no avail.
How deep do I plant Allium Caeruleum bulbs, 2ft. Ht. and blue in colour, do they need full sun.
Do I lift dahilas and gladioli for winter and how do i store them? Can i move and seperate my peony now as its bolcking my front gate its been there since before i bought the house 12 years ago?
when is the best time to plant tulips? its late september now....
I planted a bishop of LLandaff last year and a bishop of York this year.The llandaff came back with a vengeance this year. My question is when do I need to seperate the bulbs? Do I wait for them to die off for the year or just stop flowering? Also my bishop of york is quite small as it was only planted this summer so do I leave it? Do I just store the tubers in a plastic bag for the winter and plant in spring?
You mentioned a flower with "big white blossoms" on Trish Taylor programme this morning (Sep17). I can't listen back on the internet at the moment due to gremlins. Any chance you could tell me what flower you were referring to?? My German husband still can't believe that you guys can plant out that sort of thing already - they would all freeze in the ground over here.
I sent in a not very good photo of this plant to you and you suggested it might be tritonia; I'm attempting a better shot, as I read that tritonia only flourishes in mild climates and this one has survived two very bad winters! It's about5 inches high. Many thanks for such a great site!
Where can I buy the following Spring bulbs please i think our dwarf plum tree might be diseased..we haven't had any leaves so far this year and the buds all look like there is a swelling just beneath - last week I noticed a kind of sap oozing out of them but this appears to be dried up now but the buds don't seem to be developing at all..Early Snowdrop - Galanthus olgae-reginae and Spring Snowflake - Leucojum vernum
I live in an appartment and I have rose bushes growing in containers. The problem I'm having, each year for the past 3 years, is that the leaves on each of the 3 rose bushes I have planted are being decimated by something that doesn't seem to hang around. It also seems to fancy the leaves and flower buds on the white lillies that I am growing nearby. I wonder what is doing this and is there anything I can do to stop it next year as it is too late this year. Please see attached photos.
I hope this photo is clear enough to identify - a sweet little plant that I think is in the wrong place but it bravely struggles on every year; if I know what it is maybe I can take better care of it. Thanks.
