When you say 'winter' displays, which month are you thinking of?

Perhaps some crocuses, Iris sibirica or spring flowering small cyclamen.
Hyacinths can be brought on early, and maybe narcissus.

There are not many things you could grow from seed now to flower before March. There might be some early vegetables that would add to a show.

Is the 'cover' you have heated, or does it have extra lighting?

Re: Any idea what this is?

Message from ELAINE HUTSON

In forum: Identify a plant

I am responding from the US, so the scale will not work, it looks like a bulb of some sort, the silver in it reminds me of a spring crocus, but they don't come up, the muscari are up, the ornithogalums have that silver stripe. I can't imagine a dracena coming up from seed, I am sure Carol or Pauline will help.

What species of crocus is this?

Hi Nicola

Thanks for your reply. I must have missed where in the emails it gives a range. The emails give care instructions for February, say. It might be useful if it also said "and March, April".

I thought her point was fair enough because it takes some time for gardens up here to wake up. That said I do have some crocuses coming through.

Thank you so much for the information. As crocus is selling it for £8.99 I think I will let it flower then decide if I want to keep it. This is the first time it has appeared in my garden.

Snow drops and daffodils are poisonous to all critters, now crocus's that is another story, field mice and squirrels think they are a gourmet spread.

Hi, Katrine,
There are any number of plants that can be potentially to dogs, but the worst offenders are:
Autumn crocus, azaleas, kalanchoe, cyclamen, lilies, oleander, lily of the valley, sago palm, tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, apple trees, cherry trees, asparagus fern, privet, red maple trees, hosta, castor bean, yew, ivy, and dieffenbachia (an indoor plant)

joie de vivre rose

Question from paula hewitt

In forum: Rosa 'Joie de Vivre'


it says on the crocus website that these dont really get bothered by a lot of the other types of rose problems, dideases etc? Can someone verify this for me.

Re: weed or not ?

Message from ELAINE HUTSON

In forum: Identify a plant

It is a colchicum, blooms in fall with pink or white crocus like flower, will go dormant in summer, so mark the spot.

Re: Sweet Woodruff

Message from Carol

In forum: Galium odoratum

Interesting to learn that it grows in the shade! All the patches in my garden are in full sun. Maybe that's why other things are competing quite well. I have magnolia in one patch, potentilla in another, and a patch of irises amongst the woodruff. It does seem to have spread madly last autumn/winter though, so I will be digging it out from around the crocuses and things. The hardy geraniums keep on top of it and nothing seems to stop the muscari (grape hyacinth).

Jo you have a huge selection of fab plants to choose from for a Nth facing bed. Why not try some architectural Euphorbias, Hellebores and Ferns for starters? Fill with bulbs such as daffs, anemones, crocus for now or whatever bulbs are left in your local garden centre / nursery. Let me know how you get on
