Acanthus spinosus Bear's breeches

Posted: 01 August 2014
Overall: Similar to Jeanne F, we inherited the plant and it is indeed very striking, but is situated in quite a small border and has become invasive. I tried digging it out last year but this year it is just as big. Would appreciate any guidance on how to reduce it.

Lythrum salicaria Purple loosestrife

Posted: 31 July 2014
Overall: Great plant for attracting bees and butterflies

Acaena microphylla New Zealand burr

Posted: 31 July 2014
Overall: It's a pest! It is called a burr because the seeds stick like velcro to anything and self-seed everywhere (plus your clothes become covered). The plant scrambles everywhere covering every other plant. You would be better off with Japanese knotweed. At least that looks attractive. Avoid like the plague it is.

Posted: 31 July 2014
Overall: I have had a "kentish Bell" for 8 years. it is in a pot and always kept in the garden for the last 4 winters I have wrapped it in a fleece over winter as it did get damaged during a prolonged cold spell. This year it has been excellent really beautiful blooming an May and still going strong.

Abutilon megapotamicum Trailing abutilon

Posted: 14 July 2014
Overall: Trim the ends of an abutilon when its in active growth and taking that leader will encourage an army of branching stems all bearing more flowers. But a savage prune in the spring where you take half of the new growth off would really benefit it. And lots of feed. Hungry hungry hungry so feed feed feed !

Posted: 14 July 2014
Overall: Cuttings are easy. Stem tip cuttings. 4 nodes and strip all the leaves off bar the tip one. Deep in a pot of open compost. Cool tops and warm bottoms. No covering. Mist if possible. Hope this helps.

Overall: if you send me a picture of the abutilon I can identify it and we can work out where to put it and what it loves best. They are all very different personalities. t3plants@aol.com

Overall: We have a problem with little snails on leaves. Water snails especially, and because its been a wet spring and summer there has been a population explosion. Hope this helps.
