I have purchased this lovly plant, but unfortunately it did not come with a name as it was bought from an open day, and could it be grown again from seeds?
I have tried two years in a row to bring white and blue lobelia seeds i can grow lots of other seeds is there a knack to lobelia?
I need colour for this July, what do I grow?
Some leaves on my young salvia bedding plants are turning yellow,is it over/under watering,not enough ventilation, or some other cause?
With the very bad frost and snow i lost climbing geraniums i had belong to my dad and id love to get them i have seen geranium skyrocket in english magizene can i get them by mail here in ireland?
I planted busy lizzies outside in pots in mid April. The leaves have shrivelled and become discoloured and I fear that frost may have been the cause although I don't remember any frosty nights since planting. I didn't put any fertilizer in the pots,- just used the pots of potting compost which I used last year. If I should have used fertilizer or the like, could you please recommend a product as I am relatively new to gardening and seem to put in an awful lot of effort but don't always get results!
Should I pinch out petunias as they grow from seed
Last year, I planted two outdoor impatiens(busy lizzie) plants inside as house plants, they grew fine. recently took 3 cuttings, they all grew. could i use these new plants for outdoor summer bedding for this year? Would they grow, should I aclimatise them first?
I have lots of germinated seeds, have moved them to unheated glasshouse but most have stopped developing they are exactly the same HELP i dont want to lose them now having succeeded this far.
I have just transplanted summer bedding seedlings, lobelia, viola and one other type. I currently have them in a sunny spare room as I dont have a greenhouse. Will this be too warm for them or could they go out into the garage?

I replaced my outdoor Geranium which was killed by last years frost. My new ones thrived and bloomed all summer in a large pot outside my back patio door. In order to prevent a recurrance of last years disaster, I recently brought the pot into the kitchen and placed it beside the French Door window. Now, two weeks later, the plant is looking poorly, although the soil in the pot is moist (I water it weekly). I live in Roscrea and notice a neighbours potted Geranium is blooming in her front porch, which is protected with a glass door. I do not have a glasshouse.
I live in Bray co Wicklow and about a mile in from the beach. Our garden is quite sheltered and usually pelargoniums and fuchias and such like survive the winter very well. However this year Ihave taken some cuttings of fuchias, penstamon and abutilon and also have some other perennials in pots with a view to getting them hardy to plant out. Is it necessary to cover these plants with some protective fleece or should they survive the winter chills?
