Can I plant crocus bulbs in late November to flower the following spring? I have a sunny south facing garden in North Lancashire England. I intend to plant 100 + in the lawn. I do not use any form of weedkiller in this area.
As long as the ground has not frozen, you can still plant crocuses. The location sounds good.
I live in OR (outside of Portland) . I need to know the proper winter care of my outdoors Hibiscus -- particularly pruning and protection from winter elements. -
Hardy hibiscus does not need any winter protection in your area and should not need any special protection.

I want to know how to make an organic spray for my Azaleas, which have lace bugs.
This article has recipes for homemade sprays:
I like neem oil myself. You have to buy it, but it is organic, safe for people, pets and good bugs and very effective. Here is more information:
Most of my shrubs and trees are infected with a grey fungus, which I have used umpteen things to try to remove without success. The branches of the affected shrub/tree eventually go very brittle and can be too easily broken off. Some of the shrubs have died. Any ideas what the fungus is and how I can treat it? My garden, despite efforts to fix (including drainage pipes), gets easily waterlogged.
This sounds like lichen, which is actually a symptom rather than a cause of the problems on the trees. Lichen often like trees or branches that are dying or dead, which leads many people to think that the lichen is to blame for the problem.
If your garden is often waterlogged, you may have a fungus in the roots of the trees that are killing them. Are you seeing any other signs of problems in the trees? What do the leaves look like when the branches are dying?
My white hyacinth is turning brown. Why and how do I fix it?
If the flower is older, it may just be fading naturally and that will cause it to brown. If it is fading sooner than you think it should, it is either lacking enough light or is over or under watered.
Move it to a brighter window and water the soil only when it is dry to the touch on the very top of the soil.
Brown rot is out of control. I spray with 4 different fungicides 6 to 10 times a year. I get rid of all last year's fruit and leaves. What else can I do?

My hyacinth was starting to lean over, and eventually it snapped and broke. Will another flower grow out of the bulb? Is there anything I should do to produce another flower?
They only produce one bloom a year, but you can help them bloom well for next year. Here is an article that will help you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.ca/ornamental/bulbs/hyacinth/planting-and-care-of-hyacinths.htm
