When to re-pot Dicentra (bleeding heart)

Posted: 09/05/2012 at 12:37

Do it once it's finished flowering. I'm not sure that it's as fussy about root disturbance as they say - I once chopped mine up by accident, and it still cane back!

What's the weather like in your area?

Sunny this morning, but predicted to rain heavily later.

The grass is so high, I'm thinking of bringing in the big game hunters soon....

But the good news is that my clematis sieboldi is alive and well after giving me a fright by not showing last month

Clematis Montana Peveril

Peveril isn't pruned normally - they are big plants, that's their nature (5-7m). If you have to prune to control their size do it after flowering.

No, that causes complete collapse. It's more likely to be uneven watering if they're in pots.

Well, part of the argument is that seeds only have a finite life, so if you suppress them long enough they'll be dead before they can get the chance to germinate.

If any hole that you dig fills with water it suggests that your garden is very low. If that is the case then you can't really condition the soil to help matters, but need to raise it.

Decorative Bay trees with brown leaves

There could be all sorts of reasons. A few brown leaves are quite normal at this time of year, but a large amount is not. Did it dry out early in the year? Is it in a small pot that was caught by a hard frost?

Camellia with leaves turning brown

Camellias need an acid soil - do you know if your soil is acid?

JI should have been fine. I would leave it where it is and make sure that it doesn't get too wet again. Hopefully, it will put out fresh shoots in time.

Simply pull or dig them up.
