Another plant ID question

It is Helianthemum rather than Cistus.

Ground cover suppressing weeds

Posted: 17/06/2015 at 12:51

But just remember that no ground cover plant will suppress weeds. They will grow under them and up through. Weeding is much harder too. I have just spent a 'happy' 2 hours lifting up and weeding under Geranium Johnson's Blue to get at the Ragged robin and the Fireweed and the Ash trees which somehow manage to grow underneath in the deepest darkest driest shade.

What kind of Saxifrage?

The early flowering porophyllum types need the dead flowers removing from the rosettes, very carefully so you do not pull out the rosettes themselves. The silver Saxifrage types (flowering now with sprays of white or red spotted, occasionally pale yellow flowers) can have the old sprays removed, but the rosette which produced them will die. When it is dry you may carefully take it off, but again be gentle so as not to uproot the new baby rosettes. All other types have the old flowering stems cut back to the point of origin.

Weeds from surrounding field ruining garden

I rather prefer the strip of uncultivated land along side our property. It provides a barrier to the sprays which they use on the land, killing everything from aphids to something beginning with 'Z'.  So we get weeds, we get them from the roadside verges as well, every time a vehicle goes past they spread the seeds. We live with it.

Mind I could do without the ground elder which comes off the road side verge.

Can't post pics.

Got dozens of these thugs, but this is the first time I have seen one of this colour.

Wilt is a common worry, but the instances of it are far rarer than the questions about it..

As much as anything, if the plant is getting enough water (and they need a LOT of it until established) then it is probably just suffering from being unpotted and planted out.

Better to mulch with something organic to provide shade than to use tiles.

This is what you get if you allow Dianthus  to self seed.
