  • Anyone got a glut of skunk cabbage? I have recently discovered that someone came into our garden and dug up snowdrops daffodils and leucojum. Has anyone else experienced this dastardly behaviour?

  • Appealing for a herb that I used to grow: Salad Burnet

    It grew so easily that it flourished in a caked rockery and self-seeded from year to year.
    It has a delicate strand of dark-green leaflets, and the dinkiest little dark red flowers that you ever saw.

    Mine disappeared during some rebuilding and I've been looking for seeds or plants to start it again (A very useful little herb it is, too: and very pretty on fish, with a faint taste of cucumber)

    Mysteriously, it seems to be unavailable: no seeds, no potted plants, anywhere I've looked.

    So, has anybody got some? Even one little plant or a few seeds?

    I can't offer much in exchange except loads of goodwill and good karma, and unto half my kingdom in houseplants LOL

    Big grin!




  • Thank you - i have ordered seeds. Though the postage seems very steep, I'm waiting in hope!




  • Does anyone know where I could get cuttings from a Photinia Red Robin plant. I only want 15 - 20 cuttings and I could swap some strawberry plants if someone wanted them.

    Thanks




  • ill take your strawberries for the red robin cuttings




  • I've lots of echium blue steeple they are varying sizes from 1-5ft
    Summer fruiting raspberry canes
    Snapdragon mostly pink/purple
    Purple bearded iris
    Pale yellow Irish primroses
    I'm based in Dublin 3

  • Does anyone in Cork city want lemon balm or garlic? I have about 100 spare garlic plants, no room for them.

    Free to a good home.




  • Looking for some Courgette plants in Nenagh area, mine all perished. I have spare plants of tomatoes, chives, cucumber, various brassicas and nasturtiums or am happy for someone to pick through my "seed book" as I have learnt seed doesn't keep great. Thanks Tracy




  • Not too late to resow courgettes; they will soon catch up

    There is one called Lemon drop but it's not dwarf, notable for a rather untidy growth habit and the fact that it flowers in spring and again in Autumn .
    I have it, nearly 6 feet tall and very untidy. I'm trying to pluck up the courage to top it in the hope it would bush out!




  • Question regarding hellebores. Garden centres are selling them off cheap as they're looking a bit worse for wear. Will these die off like a perennial but revive then in the spring? I need some cheap plants to fill a long planter but don't want to waste my money if they're just dying

    They are perennials. They will grow every year.

    I knew it sounded thick when I was typing, just wanted to double check!

    On that note, some good bargains b&q/woodies, picked up hellebores for €3 from €16




  • So I got my cheap hellebores. They are looking a bit worse for wear, should I cut these back completely or just deal with the worse looking leaves?

  • This large hebe with purple flowers is wild along the outside of the East Pier in Dun Laoghaire.

    Last year, I took cuttings, grew them on and now I have too many plants.

    Cuttings have not flowered this year, but will next year.

    Free to take in Dun Laoghaire.

    Best, Bob
