I planted Tulip bulbs and allium bulbs in very large pots as I had nowhere for them round Nov can I now move them as I finally have some where in the garden for them, and is it to late to plant some allium bulbs that have not been planted at all?
I am just wondering about an area of bluebells that I planted in the autumn - they were planted in a mixture of compost and good soil in mid to late October in a shady site underneath a tree. They have not as yet begun to emerge above the ground and I am wondering is that normal for this time of year given the bad weather before Christmas or should they have started to come up by now?
I bought a lot of Spring bulbs which I didn't manage to plant in time in the Autumn, Can I plant them now in the hope that they will bloom in 2012, or can I store them for planting next Autumn? If the latter, how should I do it, please?
I'd like to know of a supplier of heritage varieties of iris, or old garden varieties.
I bought two big bags of bulbs in the autumn - daffs and native bluebells, didn't get around to planting them and then the snow came.... Can they still be planted? Can they be stored until next autumn?
I planted daffs. crocus, tulips and bluebells inNov, would these be damaged by the frost beneath ground.I also had about 20 of last years daffs poking through and tips are now frost bitten, will they survive?
Just wondering is it best to take up bulbs each year, dry and store?I heard Daffs are better left in the ground as they multiply? Which ones are better left in and which taken out?
I have brought my lillies ,grown in pots,into the cold greenhouse ,tilted them on their side to drain. how do I store them for the winter and when do I start them off for next year?
What on earth, excuse the pun, does this mean. I am very much a beginner but am seeing this on packets of bulbs whilst browsing.
I want to transplant Nerine bulbs - they have now stopped flowering and are at back of my vegetable patch which I want to make bigger. When and how do I transplant?
In the Sept edition of Irish Garden Finola Reid wrote a most interesting article on Crinums.I would like to buy some but I am unable to find a supplier.
I'm hoping to grow my own flowers for a late July wedding next year (2011). I want blue flowers, something simple. I like the Japan Iris. Would this be a suitable flower in terms of when it blooms? If so when is the best time to plant? There is plenty of space and various aspects where I can plant them.
I have planted snowdrops and hope to 'force' them to flower at xmas. Can this be done? If so, I have put them in a dark cool place but wonder if I should water/feed them, and also, when should I bring them into the warmth/light in order to have them flower for xmas.I have also planted baublets from my lillies (they were vey beautiful and healthy this summer) and potted them in a mix of compost and grit. I have also put a layer of grit on top of pots. Where shuld I store them - light/dark, should I water/feed them over winter? when shuld I plant them out? after frost? Thanks Harriet
