I have some wallflowers which are coming to the end of their flowering season, will they come back next year or should I dig them up and put in some summer bedding for colour. I have daffodils sown behind them.
I planted winter pansies, violas and mini cyclamen and cyclamen in my window boxes in late September. The compost is very wet and cyclamen may be rotting. Have deadheaded but little further flowering. Do I need to dry out window boxes and if so how? Also, should I fertilise to encourage growth and if so, what type of product - dry product?
When should I sow my forget-me-not seeds so they are flowering with my tulips?
I bought 13 window boxes for the spring and im not sure what to fill them with.
Over the last 2 years, I've grown a lot of veg and summer bedding in containers and so have about 2 cubic metres of spent compost, made up of bought in proprietary peat based product and home made general stuff (grass, plant shreddings, green kitchen waste etc.). How best can I re-use this? Ideally, I would like to rejuvenate it in some way so that I can use it in this year's veg and summer plant containers. I don't have a lot of empty bed space to dig it in, as most of this is deeply mulched with bark.
I'm a very amateur gardener but I love growing things and this Christmas I took a shine to a flower I describe as 'Ornamental Cabbage'. They are a form of brassica of this I'm sure but are they just cabbage plant flowers? Or have they a specific genus?
