Heuchera 'Lime Marmalade' help!

Posted: 16/06/2014 at 21:53

My Key Lime Pie loves being in almost total shade in the summer; it gets more light when the trees have dropped their leaves. It is not very vigorous; I have to protect it from encroaching Corydalis, but if I keep up to scratch on that it does well.

I have found that even with large pots, sometimes the rain just misses them - depending on which direction the rain is falling. Even after quite heavy rain, some pots are still pretty dry.

Help for flooded gardens

How lovely to hear that. But how sad that houses are still empty, I cannot begin to imagine the difficulties some families have been through.

What is this plant?

Sadly it isn't just new builds; I have worked on building sites for decades and frequently seen builders ruin a garden; sometimes in a matter of hours, just by mixing concrete without putting down a tarp and putting scaffold poles and planks on top of flower beds. But there are tidy builders who respect people's spaces, though I don't think that happens on new builds; it's all about the money and burying rubbish is cheaper than a skip.

Dove, I suggested a hard prune so that snowa can start again, training it from lower down, but if the branches are maliable enough to train horizontally now, then go for it

Poorly Courgettes

Take the flowers off when the courgette is half grown. You can stuff the flowers and cook them. I have been told that if you don't remove the flowers they can cause the end to rot.
