Campaign to save the pain of.....

Posted: 21/04/2016 at 18:46

Hi , yes I'll join this campaign! I bought an escallonia last spring , needed coverage and GC recommended it. So bought and planted but I took it as read that the tea bag thingy would allow roots to grow through and rot down / didn't know any better...... No ! it didn't come on all last year, so just dug up to re- position and low n behold, it's a tea bag with a very small root ball. Fingers crossed, it now grows on properly

Propagating phototina

Hello fellow gardeners, has anyone propagated phototina and how do I do it?  Can I just stick a cutting into the ground where I want it to grow? Or am I just being lazy ! 

What is this pesky plant/weed/tree?
