two disasters this summer - new gardener, so advice welcomed.
1. Two lavender bushes about 1ft high size, 1 with silver foliage, and t'other with the butterfly tops. Potted them, fed and watered over summer, but never bloomed. Now they're on patio and winter approaches. How should I care from them please?
2. Planted freesia bulbs - 5 to a pot. Only half flowered, and the rest were all leaves, some yellow. I fed and watered them, but the compost got very smelly and a bit green. Should I have added some grit and watered them less perhaps?
