Hello there This Leucanthemum is a tall growing variety, - approx 1.5m so not ideal for in a pot as it could flop and the stems get broken in the wind. I would go for one of the smaller varieties like Leucanthemum vulgare which grows to approx 40cm tall http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/leucanthemum-vulgare/classid.1000000962/ or Leucanthemum × superbum 'Banana Cream' which grows to approx 45cm http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/leucanthemum--superbum-banana-cream/classid.2000017462/ Hope this helps

Advice on replanting Daffodil bulbs Hello I had to dig up quite a few daffodil bulbs after flowering this year due to building works and wish to re-plant these bulbs now. Most of them have green shoots sprouting from the top - question is do I still plant the bulbs deep thus covering these shoots - think the answer is yes but would like confirmation as I've never done this before. I have to say that all the other tips you have given me have been really useful. Thank you very much for your help. Elaine

Hello Elaine, Yes you are right, the bulbs should be planted at their normal depth (around three times as deep as the bulb itself), so the green shoots will be well and truly covered. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor
