What are they doing in there, Irish????

17 Oct, 2008

 

aye Hywel, seen it in my new book so thought id try it.
the bulbs are just barely sitting in the water

17 Oct, 2008

 

I put hyacinths (spelling?) in a big bowl with glass beads a couple of years ago ... they were fab.. never thought to try it with daffs.. now you've got me going girl....

17 Oct, 2008

 

hopefully growing Spritz lol

17 Oct, 2008

 

aw cool Sal, glad it worked with your bulbs. you gona try it again with daffs?

17 Oct, 2008

 

What happens when they grow tall? Won't they fall over????

17 Oct, 2008

17 Oct, 2008

~Hydroponics Eileen?~What's the book called?

17 Oct, 2008

 

lol it must be Bonkers

18 Oct, 2008

 

the book is called 101 garden projects,,,, its a gardeners world book Arlene

18 Oct, 2008

 

Eileen, youve got me looking for a suitable bowl now how deep does the bowl and the water need to be?

18 Oct, 2008

 

it doesn't say how deep the bowl should be , just says a deep, wide bowl or a jar, some pebbles or glass stones or even gravel . put a layer of stones in the base, push the bulbs into the stones enough to hold them and then add water to just below the bulb, top up when necessary

18 Oct, 2008

 

The place where I buy my bulbs has these all over the place with various types of bulbs and different sizes and shapes of bowls.

18 Oct, 2008

 

you gona get one Newfienurse?

18 Oct, 2008

 

~ wonder what an arrangement of tete a tete mini daffodils would look like?The more enclosed it is the moister the environment-did you have your bowl already or did you buy especially Eileen?
A while ago the shops in London were doing big round goldfish looking bowls with coloured calla lilies wrapped around inside-looked really classy!

18 Oct, 2008

 

i would say tete a tete daff's would look brilliant done this way Arlene.
i already had the bowl, there was some very tired looking potpourri in it

18 Oct, 2008

 

Might give this a try myself , whats the next project then ?

18 Oct, 2008

 

aye Janette give it a go.
my next project is to go and do the councils work for them by cutting back all branches over hanging the roads lol

18 Oct, 2008

 

Good project, might save somebody from, getting a black eye lol

18 Oct, 2008

 

~still feeling lousy as is the whole family-but when I'm feeling better I will be heading to Wyevale!~good luck with the branches!
The local farmer cuts the hedges back in a truly draconian fashion which leaves the wood all battle scarred and bare and I usually can't wait for them to grow! ~ our local council sends out a cherry picker to cut the overhanging ones as the bus company runs double deckers but sometimes we get such winds there are quite big branches in the road-must be dangerous for you with the learners?

18 Oct, 2008

 

lol cheers janette

18 Oct, 2008

 

aw Arlene , i hope you are feeling better soon

18 Oct, 2008

 

~thanks Eileen
~the weather is dry and I wish i could get out ino the garden ~but I start to feel shivery and very fragile so just wanting it to go away so that I can do things!~
Got my own brand of biological warfare! trouble is it's winning!

18 Oct, 2008

 

the garden will wait for you Arlene, just make sure you are fully well before doing anything out there

18 Oct, 2008

 

~thanks Eileen!

18 Oct, 2008

 

He he Irish cutting down branches for the council - that d be on trunk roads then, save the government ( small g due to cut backs ) a job they ve been cutting branches everywhere.

Sorry to hear you not feeling well Arlene.Get well soon.x

18 Oct, 2008

 

lol i was fixing a puncture yesterday Bonkers and nearly got my eye taking out with a over hanging branch

19 Oct, 2008

 

no Irish, I won't be getting any, I'm thinking that come spring, I will have enough bulbs to look at! lol...take pictures of the blooms, please!

19 Oct, 2008

 

lol true i think you have more than enough bulbs there

19 Oct, 2008

 

This is a good idea.I have one of those bowls somewhere,used to have an african violet in mine plus I have some glass pebbles though mine are blue.I think they will look lovely when they are in flower.

25 Oct, 2008

 

I was given a glass trough with glass pebbles and paper white narcissus bulbs a few years ago, it made a lovely display, this will be really pretty when the flowers appear!
