No gardening forum?

    So, I just noticed that there is no gardening forum on HP .. or is it hidden away somewhere I don't know about?  Does anyone know where I can post to ask for help about gardening, please?  I looked at toys, games and hobbies (I figured gardening might be classified as a hobby), but I couldn't find a gardening subtopic there.  And it's not in arts and crafts.  I need some help on planting some flowers and other sites on the web give conflicting info, so I wanted to ask someone directly.  Where do I go?? sad

      No reason you can't just ask here smile  many of the angels and devils on here are also gardeners.  I write poetry but I have been a landscape gardener for few years in past life.

      Ask !

      I'm glad you asked! Please just wait a few days and I may have your answer. Having joined the Hub only a two hours ago, I'm still getting up to speed. But as an enthusiastic heirloom gardener, I have my own website ready to go - brimming with answers to gardening questions! More shall be posted here anon...

    Ah!  Thanks so much! I'll head on over smile

    Alternate poet, I am trying to figure out what to do with my snowdrops and lupines actually.  I'm not clear about what to do with the snowdrops bulbs now that the flowers faded and the leaves are slowly turning yellow.  And for the lupines, I'm confused about what to do with the side shoots.  Any suggestions? smile

      From memory the snowdrops should not be disturbed - just let the leaves wither and disappear, doesn't take long if you are a houseproud gardener smile

      I think I remember rightly that Lupin clumps just get bigger and bigger but the flowers get more but smaller - keeping the clump small should make for bigger flowers - but you should double check this as my meemory is a bit rusty big_smile
