Nutcutlet, the easiest way is to post a picture of the flowers.

That does look like Charles Lamont.

 

We have Lonicera fragrantissima and L Winter Beauty, both in flower now too.

Let's just give up gardening and wrap ourselves in cotton wool and sit on the couch and watch Donty Mon do it.

And don't get me started on Rose prunings!

Best of luck with seed. Sadly they do not do well from dried seed. To get really good results you need fresh seed sown straight from the plant. Find someone with Hellebores and beg a selection of seeds from them.

Pampas grass leaves have barbs on them, they rip your hands to shreds when they are pulled into the machine.

If you allow the stems of the big Miscanthus to dry, they make fantastic fire lighters for our wood burning stove thing. BUT we have a lot of them! More than we can ever hope to burn.

Shredded stems make wonderful path mulch through our wood though.

The Miscanthus stems will not compost. There are some at the bottom of one of the piles which are the same as they were when I put them down 5 years ago.

All shreddings are used in the garden. We only send things which will not compost or shred to the Council tip. Things like Rose prunings and persistent rooted stuff.

Me too. At 350 squid plus, they need to be GOOD!

I can actually get all the bits for the Screw blade type so I may just repair that one, or at least my mechanically minded neighbour has offered to do it and since he builds aeroplane engines I think he probably can do it.

 

I already have an impact type and it is useless for the amount and type of material this size of garden produces.

 

What do other people do with 3 or 4 thousand Miscanthus x hybridus stems?
