Cycad watering.

I know some of you water your Cycads to get them to flush. How/what/when do you do it? Do you use warm or cold water. Thanks.

Re: Warm watering .......

I always use the water from the bath, recycled so no extra cost. There is also a water diverter available if you can get to your bath waste pipe. icon_thumright

Chamaedorea radicalis repotting.

Anyone tried repotting these? I have two in very narrow deep pots that are going to be a pig to get out. Will they stand a bit of root disturbance or shall I split the pots. I've had them too long to want to kill them. icon_thumright

Re: erythrina crista-galli var compacta

I love this plant and would like to get my hands on the compact form but I don't think they are available in the UK. Does yours set seed? I would love to buy some off you If available. Cheers Jas. icon_thumright

Re: Dahlias again.

Thanks Kristen, I thought that may be the case. However, ever the optimist I'll do a kata and plant them round the edge of the pot just to satisfy my curiosity. :lol: I seem to remember seeing someone on the telly cutting the stem down the middle to double up on the tubers, is this fact or was I dre...

Dahlias again.

I potted up my Dahlias which are now sprouting, however I was left with some single tubers which broke off the main clumps when posted, will these grow if potted up or do they need a bit of the old stem which is where the Dahlias seem to be sprouting from. Thanks.

Re: No garden access in April - to unwrap or not???

Mine have not been permanently wrapped this winter, just something thrown over them when a frost was forecast, three times I think this winter. However you do have to consider he is a lot further north than you two. I would unwrap but don't blame me if they snuff it. :lol: There is still time to get...

Re: How many years to get your Echiums to flower.

Well done with your recovery, Jas. Sounds like yours will peak around May and a good harvest of seedlings next Autumn? I did reset mine but after all the leaves drooped and dropped I got a little bit of movement from the tips.However, that was residual rising sap and when the trunks below began to ...

Re: How many years to get your Echiums to flower.

Greville, your story is very similar to mine, bought one 6 inches high, the following year it grew to 5 1/2 foot. I expected it to flower the following year. Instead it grew 23 side shoots despite the growing point being undamaged. I cut all of them off in an attempt to get it to flower, but it only...
