What would be best for my tete a tete (and me)?

Thank you Alina. I think I'll replant them in soil in old potato sacks. Do I then leave them there until September?

Perennials not growing

I paid approx. £22 for three pot-grown echinacea last year - marked as "hardy". Not one has re-appeared this year. Is there still time?

I have had lovely displays of these little daffs (some with anemone blanda) in three teracotta pots - and now I need the pots!! (I know I should have put them in plastic ones first....). Should I tip them out and allow them to dry and replant in the Autumn? Dig them up and replant them somewhere where they can die down until the Autumn? Discard them and treat myself to some new ones?

What is eating my bergenias?

Posted: 26/04/2012 at 11:33

I love bergenias. I have twelve different sorts and have never had a problem until now. But something is eating huge semi-circular chunks out of the edges of the leaves. I don't think it's slugs (no trails, pelletts used) and haven't found any caterpillars on nightly searches. Surely it's too early for vine weevils? Help please!

I've arrived too! Thought I hadn't, but seem to be OK now - thanks to advice from "You now what" forum. Used to be "Perennial Grass" but have gone off them, now that my penisetum hasn't reappeared....
