Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

I posted these pictures quickly before I even had time to read exactly why #thinkpink so this is for my mum, partner and friend who have beaten or are fighting cancer and also remembering the several relatives and a very close friend who have died because of this horrible disease

Your partner had his results back?

Kerry, he saw consultant yesterday and last scan again inconclusive. So now got to have an MRI but if that’s inconclusive he will have to have a CT scan with contrast (which they’ve avoided as he has declining kidney function) but they might have to do it anyway and he would then end up on dialysis. If they have to remove kidney then he will still end up on dialysis. So either way it’s not great. Just hoping MRI is conclusive that he doesn’t have it otherwise it’s not great. @kez001uk

Thanks @kimguy such a difficult time but my garden/plants are helping me out. I hope you are looking after yourself and I love your positive attitude. Unfortunately, suffering from anxiety and depression, I often go to negative thoughts first and have to train myself to be positive.

Hi Alison, the attitude is the result of years of work and treatment for severe depression with anxiety. Don't be afraid to get help if you are in need! Mental health is just as important as physical health. Depression likes to play tricks on your mind by sending all that negativity. I'm sure I may become angry or sad at some point but I will not allow it to linger. Hang in there.😎💜

comment

@keely oh is it too early? I’ve still got others to plant but waiting for my zinnias to finish in other pots!! The packet said plant sept-Dec and I wanted to get cyclamen planted so put the bulbs in! 😬

comment
Keely

It's a tad too early ok for dafs, hyacinths n muscari but tulips are best mid to late Oct even early Nov if it's too warm it could start them off and the frost will get the tips beforehand which will result in them rotting Hun 😮

1w
comment
bluefox23

Suppose digging them up again now won’t do them any good either! These 5 might have to be an experiment then and sacrificed if necessary! I’ll plant the other tulip bulbs much later! I just get impatient!!! @keely

As the temps have dropped already you should be fine. Anytime now to end of Oct for bulbs. 😊

comment
Keely

I would wait to do your others personally, the temp during the day is still quite warm just drops on a night worth experimenting though If they do ok and you plant others later you will have a few weeks off spring flowers at different times 😄

I made the same mistake with some Tulips last year and I had a really poor show, luckily I’d only planted one lot before I was given this advice Alison 👍👍

Ok @pelly 🤞🏼 fingers crossed these are ok but I'll save the others and hope they'll definitely be ok! If not, I'm no worse off than last year, except the £2 for the bulbs!!

I like them but as soon as the temps drop below 4 degrees they wilt so need protection in winter 👍

The one I bought last year only lasted 2 weeks because we had early frosts. Hopefully, you'll get to enjoy it for longer and you can bring it in for winter but don't water near the crown as they are really prone to powdery mildew. Best to water them from below 👍 I'm too stingy to buy these and then end up throwing them away 2 months later 😂😂😂

Hmm, they will last longer than your annuals if you provide winter protection from cold temperatures and crown rot. 👍 These big flowered cyclamen are not as hardy as the ones you see growing under trees (cyclamen coum or hederifolium) and they wilt as soon as temperatures drop to near zero. Your annuals should last until first frost as well so until about November. 😉👍
