Title: Video Diary - Bulb Log supplement
Post by: Ian Y on March 12, 2015, 09:07:47 AM
I am experimenting with a Bulb Log video diary here,I hope, is a trial version.

A nice wee tour of the bulb bed there, Ian. Lovely to see so many plants pushing through now with a promise of flowers yet to come as well as those looking good now. If that was taken on your usual camera the image quality is pretty good.

Matt I have borrowed a video camcorder to try out hence the better quality, plus using YouTube allows higher definition it is now time for me to improve my part of the operation so hopefully more improvements will come.

Just having my coffee break at work enjoying your video Ian.................quite a few snowdrops there  ;D

Great accent too!

I'm finding seedlings appearing in my garden now so hopefully my beds will resemble yours someday.

Great fan of your bulb log Ian - it is a fantastic resource.

Your video was really interesting and looked very professional. Well done! I look forward to seeing further installments. Being able to view the individual plants with a running knowledgeable commentary adds a extra dimension to this exciting time of the year. So much more informative than gardening programmes on tv. The Beechgrove Garden would be greatly improved if they included a video such as yours in their programme.

Thank you, Ian, for a most enjoyable video. The producers of Gardeners World could learn a thing or two about INTERESTING content from your film. You have brightened up a dreich morning here.
Looking forward to the next video.

The only good thing about GW is Carol Klein, a plantswoman whose enthusiasm is truly engaging and infectious.

Beechgrove by comparison is full of useful information, tips and trials etc. and I get so much more from this show.

Post by: Mavers on March 12, 2015, 01:53:59 PM
That's true Matt, I met Carol at The Garden House a few years ago at Matt Bishop's snowdrop day & noticed when I spoke to her how intent she was on listening to what I was saying. As you say truly engaging.

The bit I really liked was the Dactylorhiza shoots just poking through and the erythroniums - all that excitement to come! It would be great to do something like this - and to see it more on gardening programmes. I've just been reading 'North with the Spring' by Edwin Way Teale, and he makes references throughout to people like Thoreau, Audobon, John Muir - lots of naturalists, as well as country people (rather like Roger Deakin in his 'Journey through Trees'). He loves birds, just as John Muir did and wrote about them, but also plants. It will be a treat to follow the spring garden like this - a lot to learn.

Thank you Tim, I value all feedback as I am learninng to use video  - all tips and comments will help me ito mprove.


The most difficult bit is holding the camera in one hand while remembering to look at the viewing screen to ensure I have framed the plants that I am speaking about.

Post by: brianw on March 14, 2015, 06:37:19 PM
Super to watch and lust after some of the plants and growing conditions, but I can't help thinking it would be so much better shot in sections and edited, adding the commentary after. There is so much to think of doing it live, the plants in frame and saying what you really want to say without tripping over them or flattening some.
Was this the first take Ian? If it was congratulations.
Title: Re: Video Diary - Bulb Log supplement
Post by: Ian Y on March 14, 2015, 06:51:58 PM
Thanks for the feed back Brian. - yes this was a one take video.
I take onboard what you say and agree that it could be more polished if I edited and added the commentary later.
However I like spontaneity and want to pass some of the feeling that the viewer is with me as I see what is new today in the garden.
Also I do not have the time to do the edit and cut a separate audio track so will try and get better with the one take live version for now.

Title: Re: Video Diary - Bulb Log supplement
Post by: Maggi Young on March 14, 2015, 06:53:53 PM
No idea when Ian would have the time for editing and so on, even if he had time to learn how to do that stuff.  ::) :-\

He is well used to live radio broadcasting, so one take is all he'll do.  :)

 Oh - he's just said that!  ;D

Ian can you tell us which camera you were using, apparently one handed and at such a low angle for some of the plants? The steady focus was particularly impressive for hand held video. We are all so used to seeing these TV cameras that seem to float in the air we sometimes forget how difficult it is to hand hold a steady video.
Title: Re: Video Diary - Bulb Log supplement
Post by: vivienne Condon on March 14, 2015, 11:54:57 PM
Thank you, Thank you Ian It is so wonderful to listen to you and see yours and Maggi's garden again. Its like going to one of your lectures.
I wish we had interesting gardening shows on Television here in Australia we are so starved of any information on Alpines or garden plants, all we ever hear about is vegetables, vegetables, and more vegetables not that there is anything wrong with vegetables we all need them to live, but it would be lovely to have more information about other plants.
I find it very interesting in your garden where you have everything coming up at different stages growing very closely together, I am also trying to do this in one of my garden beds. Do you have to keep plants from flopping over each other? like the Dactylorhiza or do they behave themselves and stay in their own area. I have read in your bulb logs that you hand weed as things are so close to each other.
I love the spontaneity in your voice as you find something pushing up through the ground no retakes there,
Again thank you regards Viv

Post by: Steve Garvie on March 15, 2015, 05:35:25 AM
Congratulations Ian!!!
I have always found your bulb log to be an invaluable resource. It is a thoroughly entertaining read, packed with information and pitched at just the right level such that it appeals to relative novices (me) and skilled growers alike.

The "walk-through" video format is the perfect companion to your bulb log. I find the Cinéma vérité style far more engaging and spontaneous than any "polished" heavily edited studio production could be. It seems to me that your garden is more about interconnected plant communities than formal structured beds; a place where the plants take precedence over grand design. Your garden walk-through & Frit house videos show you to be the enthusiastic and knowledgeable curator of a wonderful living collection of attractive and desirable plants and I look forward to further "episodes"
.........and a version translated from the Doric to auld Fife-ish. ;)

Video made me feel like I was visiting your garden, I liked it very much and I'm looking forward to seeing hopefully more later in the spring.
I like the bulb log because I can read slowly and think about the text and pictures, video shows other things. Both ways are great.

Brian I have been using a borrowed JVC camcorder but have now ordered my own a Cannon using the Amazon link on these pages so the SRGC will get a cut. It should arrive this week so I will use it for then on.

Vivienne, Steve and Leena many thanks for your encouraging words and support of my new efforts, it reinforces my belief and enthusiasm to continue with this project.
It is my intention that the video will act as a supplement to my written bulb log.
I think there is tremendous potential in video medium and the website.

Hi
Have now watched Ian's video on YouTube on my television set. Also viewed Ian's video about his Frit House made on 13th February. Great to see them on a 40 inch screen rather than on a small computer screen - the detail is so much better.

Just search for 'Ian Young bulb' on YouTube to get the videos.

Yet another natural talent of yours, Ian.  Not even taking into account the gorgeous plant materials, everything to do with recording itself seemed so effortless, yet done so well!

Thank you so much!

The simplest way is to use the tv as you would a digital projector. On mine an hdmi lead works fine between the 2, but you only get the definition of the computer, as far as I know. Smart TV's can no doubt do much more when I get time to learn about using it.
But this brings me to something else more general that came up at our AGS meeting last Friday. The village hall we use now has wifi, so my laptop could access the internet when we were using it to feed a projector for a digital presentation. So I could easily show Ian's video, or anything else for that matter, to the audience. I.e. a public display. (I didn't)
So the question is; is this legal, regardless of without permission etc. etc. ?

Post by: Ian Y on March 18, 2015, 08:46:48 AM
Thanks David, I make no preparations I just wing it - I find you loose the spontaneity and freshness  if you rehearse - so any slips,stutters etc stay in.

Frit chitralensis is a thing of great beauty.

We have our Samsung TV connected to the router by an hdmi cable as the walls are too thick for wireless. We use it mainly for watching i-player but we can also look at or listen to things stored on the computer using a program called Serviio. Unfortunately, there has been a message recently saying that Samsung will no longer support YouTube so we wont be able to watch on TV after the end of this month.

Rather surprised by this and so Googled it. Seems that Samsung have a problem just now with streaming YouTube, iPlayer etc. but are trying to resolve it. Tried to access Ian's videos on YouTube on my Samsung tv and it could not connect although it was fine a couple of days ago. Would be very surprised if Samsung removed YouTube access on purpose.

Isn't technology wonderful. Now you see it, now you don't.

Well done Ian. Great to see the self seeded Cyclamen coum in your sand bed. Managed to connect tv to YouTube and so able to watch your new video on a large screen.

One small suggestion. It would be useful to have a common set of words (e.g. 'Ian Young bulb log') in the title of the videos so that it would be straightforward to search and find them all on YouTube. Searching for 'Ian Young bulb' brought up the first two videos, but not the new one on my tv. Searching for 'Ian Young sand' or 'Ian Young bulbs' brought up the new one, but not the first two.

Hope that is useful.

Very similar to Ian's raised sand bed is this raised bed that I have. It used to have alpines but after many years the only one that survived was a lovely Androsace and a lots of Colchicum minutum.

Last autumn I decided it was time for a change so out came the rocks and Androsace and in went a load of different bulbs - various Iris reticulata, various Galanthus, Scilla, various miniature Narcissus, Corydalis, Geranium and two small Frit imperialis

Its worked very well in its first year but time will tell what happens next year.

That's a very good supplement to the bulb log. The video gives a better overview of your garden and it is exciting to hear you explaining about the plants. It gives me the feeling of being there myself.
But Ian, take care: One or two time is a trial - 3 times makes it a habit! Now we expect you to carry on  ;)

Not having an alpine house, your frit house tour is inspirational but not something I can copy at the moment.  The walk round the bulb bed, though, has given me many ideas that I can imitate (not sure about the Meconopsis though!)  You are so right about it looking different every day at this time of year.  Thank you so much for yet more inspiration.  I'll look forward to the next videos.

Another great video Ian.

There was a dark leaved erythronium at the back of the cold frame I was hoping to have a closer look at Ian, it was in a pot with other erythronium with greener leaves.

 I noticed the leaves on the e. citrinus you filmed in the cold frame exhibited an orangey cast. A group of Joana develops the same colouring in my garden.

Thanks Ian. Plenty of them here but all I have seen or have in use in the garden are smooth very pale concrete, one edge square, one edge rounded, hence the confusion.
While we are on the subject your broken concrete plantings never seem to show any flat or square edges. Were these 4" or 8" blocks in another life? I assume they were low density concrete, or are Aberdeen frosts that bad? ;-)

Yes it is the low density blocks - the larger ones they are roughly 17" x 6" x 8" and I break them up and make sure that no flat edges show to reveal their previous existence.

EEK!  Fast pans again -  seasickness tablets  needed!

I have been trying to imagine rails throughout the garden and Maggie pushing Ian along on a "dolly", if that is what they are called, travelling camera style like in films. Maybe the dogs can pull him ;-)
We must have a cartoonist amongst the members somewhere, or does Ian do that too?

Ian mentions growing Erythroniums in baskets. When I grow these in anything other than very deep pots they inevitably try and escape or form weird shapes in the restricted vertical space. How do they do in the often very tapered baskets Ian? Some of these hybrids form quite large bulbs.
Title: Re: Video Diary - Bulb Log supplement
Post by: Ian Y on April 30, 2015, 12:22:04 PM
BrianW - No rails or dollies to steady the camera, although one of the TV crews that came to fil the garden did set up the railway buisness - still seems like over kill to me. You just get me camera in one hand trying to keep steady and not move or pan too fast, I am learning.

I replant the Erythroniums in baskets every second year otherwise they do try and escape through the tiny holes -weather permitting I will be replanting this year so will demonstrate fully then or if you prefer follow the link to see the report on the last repot in 2013.

Yes it is ever thus the best flowers and the best foliage often comes on different plants  - yes I have crosspollinated - but these are only three out of maybe 20 similar that I am watching in the garden.

Thank you Ian for these videos and the bulb log.
I was wondering is there something that can be done if Erythroniums just make leaves and stolons and doesn't grow the bulbs to flowering size? Does more fertilizing help?
Title: Re: Video Diary - Bulb Log supplement
Post by: Ian Y on May 01, 2015, 09:14:19 AM
You can certainly try fertilizing Leena but I am not convinced that helps much with the flowering. I am assuming that you are meaning Erythronium americanum which if you check the video I posted a while back showing our groups you will see that we just left them to run and eventually after some years they now produce a good number of flowers each year.

Some rain at last - after coming back from the East Anglia AGS Show yesterday - so a chance to look at the videos of erythroniums. Really nice to see. I've never grown E. americanum but heard how shy flowering it can be so it's enlightening to see how it can flower so well when well established. It's amazing how much you can learn in a short time from seeing plants compared and contrasted like this, and magical to see such strong stands of plants. I remember 'Craigton Cover Girl' really standing out amongst a display that Ray Drew did for the Essex AGS Group a couple of years ago, but what is so nice is to see such variation across the plants - quite difficult to choose between the three revolutum hybrids. We need to work on our woodland beds for maybe another ten or twenty years :) and erythroniums will definitely figure more in the future. Thanks Ian and will keep watching (look forward to seeing some 'Shaky Hand Productions' from the Czech gardens in the future?).

Ian, can you please tell us the aspect these face, i.e. how much sun do they get, and how do they get watered, by you or nature?
Title: Re: Video Diary - Bulb Log supplement
Post by: Ian Y on June 11, 2015, 09:47:04 AM
Brian, many aspects are involved even within the smallest of the troughs - all get sun and shade from the trees and also sitting in the shade of the larger troughs. None get full sun all day.
I do water and liquid feed when it is hot and dry, especially in when the spring growth is  active, I have been watering recently, but in general we get plenty rain and the evaporation rate is lowered by the high landscaping.

Ian mistakenly gives the 'Craigton Blue' parentage as omieana x elata - it is actually C. flexuosa x omeiana.  The Corydalis elata  which was around under that name in fact  turned out to be C. omeiana.
July issue of RHS "The Garden" features the plant in an article by Roy Lancaster about Hartside Nursery -the cross is given there as flexuosa x elata ..... but hybrid is flexuosa x omeiana.

Definitely another very enjoyable tour this afternoon. Soon after I made the most of a calm spell in our weather and removed the spent Crocus flowers! Curiously, even though our climate is wetter than that in Aberdeen, the old flowers do not seem to suffer botrytis here. I suspect it's so windy that there is constant and excellent natural ventilation so they are simply desiccated before the moulds can take hold. I'm not complacent though and still remove them.

Ian, is it a general fertiliser you give the corydalis, or high potassium?
Title: Re: Video Diary - Bulb Log supplement
Post by: Ian Y on March 30, 2016, 05:46:30 PM
Carolyn, I use a 7-7-7 when the growth first emerges switching to high potassium as the flowers fade.

My  goodness - all those minutes of watching and listening- to a running shredder!  Akin to paint drying??  But it does show how quickly the shredder disposes  of the cut material to become great mulch in future.
 In case any of you are thinking that it looks as if the BD is poking his arms dangerously low into the hopper- rest assured that the blades are a long way down and his technique is one he has perfected to get the  leafy ends of  branches through the cut.  :)

No chance of that here, Jamus - once they are out in the garden the odds are we lose the label and , as I'm sure you know - they all look the same! Bless, 'em they nearly all have names, it's just that we're not  really bothered! Pretty much all these early ones  are named forms - but what is important to us is that they like life here and clump up. We decided long ago that a 'drop in the garden had to take its chances of us remembering what it is. We usually remember when they've come from someone special  but I know, shame on us!
Title: Re: Video Diary - Bulb Log supplement
Post by: Jupiter on February 04, 2017, 09:55:36 PM
Sounds fair to me! It wouldn't bother me either but I do feel compelled to keep mine ordered and organised here in Australia. They are such rare plants here that I'm certain the collection will be of interest to others in the future...

Your eranthis are sumptuous... it's thrilling to see these plants obviously loving the conditions and thriving. They cling to existence precariously here.  :D
Title: Re: Video Diary - Bulb Log supplement
Post by: Maggi Young on February 04, 2017, 10:08:40 PM
It took us several "goes" to get the Eranthis established - we thought they were never going to start increasing - they're doing well now- we do like them.

It's fun for us to have a few "fancy" drops, of course and I do try to keep those  where I can remember them - or even planted in the glasshouse sand beds when they start increasing - but the garden effect is more important to us. I take your point about the naming being rather more relevant for you over there.

Thoroughly enjoyed your video of the sand beds as I'm particularly fond of fritillaries.

Your sand beds don't look very deep, what depth are they? Is it all sand with just a reliance on feeding?

Thanks, Chris

Dear Ian
I have been enjoying your videos and my favourites are the special edition of splitting dactylorhizas
Did you show what the old ones looked like after time in soil again?
It would be interesting to know if these also produced flower sized rhizomes or if it was many small
Kind regards
Joakim

Thanks a LOT Ian
I am not sure how I could miss it

If I may come with a suggestion to reach an even wider crowd
Video is a good way to show things so if there are a subject to be covered a special edition is a great idea!
Maybe filming repotting or trough making and call it “Repotting of xx” this way it is easier to find for more than the regular followers.
That is when you do the task anyway in order not to create a lot of extra work for you.

You said in the video that you can increase snowdrops by planting them in a pot where they make small bulbs quickly. Can you tell more about that, it sounds like something I would like to try.
You said poor soil, do you mean like sandy soil? Is there a difference if the pot is small or bigger and how deep you plant the bulb? How long does it take to get a potful of small bulbs like you had?

Thank you Leena

I discover this method through mistakes I made when I first started growing bulbs when I did not plant them deep enough and or kept them too dry the bulbs reaction was to break down into many smaller bulbs so I have turned this to my advantage.
To quote from Bulb Log 0420

'A few years ago I intentionally planted some Galanthus bulbs too near the surface of small pots to put them under stress resulting in the single large bulb breaking down into several small ones then I have spent the next two years growing them well to get them back to flowering size.

Thanks Ian!
I must have read it year ago because I remember those Eranthis pinnatifida pictures and writing  :).
I will try it with some snowdrops which increase very slowly. :)

What's in the trees at 1.45-1.52? Witch's broom or mistletoe?

Those are Witches Broom in one of our Birches (Betula) - spread from an old tree with them in a neighbour's garden.

Often ignored or even missed - I find them endlesly fascinating, as much as the bulb log.

Thanks Maggi
