On your site you offer 15 begonia corms for £12.50 and 5 colours.
Do they come packed in separate colours to allow them to be planted say 3 pink in a basket?

Convallaria Majalis \'Lily of the valley\' (Pack of 10)

This question was asked by
Niloufar

Hi
I want to plant them in container and I need some extra advice please.
1. Do I have a chance to plant them now? Can I keep them inside the house?
2.what to do after blooming for next time?

How to plant Lily of the Valley Plant your Convallaria in the spring once the frosts have passed (or start off indoors). Soak roots in water for 30minutes if they are a little dry. If planting in the garden, find a shady area, preferably with moist soil. Plant about 5-10cm deep leaving the shoot just above the surface If planting in pots, fill the pot with compost and plant about 5-10cm deep leaving the shoot just above the surface. Plant pointy end up and 5-10cm apart. Water in after planting and keep hydrated. Always unpack your bulbs on arrival and plant as soon as possible. Store in a cool, dry place until ready to plant.

Identifying a Deep Pink Nerine

This question was asked by
S. Hall

My Mum had Nerines in a vibrant pink, which I would like to grow in my garden, to remind me of her. The colour had no hint of purple or red, and is wasn’t a pale pink. I can’t tell the shade of pink from the bulb packets on your website. From images on the internet, the nearest I can find is Nerine Bowdenii Isabel.
All the best
Sarah Hall

Hi – is it Nerine Bowdenii, this is the most popular Nerine we have. A very vibrant pink.

Tree Lily's

This question was asked by
Jerry Kiersey

Hello, about five years ago I put five tree lily’s in a large pot.
They have done very well but now the pot has perhaps a dozen or more due to offshoots. When/how do I divide or should I at all?
Regards, Jerry.

Hi Jerry

Sorry for the delay in replying – we have been so busy. It seems everyone is now gardening in these difficult times.

I would wait for your lilies to flower and die back this year, by late autumn I would then lift your bulbs, divide them and replant them .

Kind regards
Victoria
