Plant indexing software

Have a look at "shoot gardening". I think it's a fantastic website. You can record everything in your garden, get updates every month to remind you what you should be doing for all the plants you have in your garden - and lots more.

A lot of my fuchsias are in positions where they are buffeted by winter winds ....... I reduce their height in the Autumn and then cut right back in the Spring as previously advised.

Vine Weevil

I hadn't noticed any problems with one of my heuchera - until it was literally "blown out of the pot". There were hardly any roots left and I quickly identified the vine weevil in the pot. But - I washed and replanted the heuchera, kept it in shade for a while and it is now doing fine again. So don't despair! I shall use provado early in the year next time.

Obviously in the wrong place in my garden ....I put it somewhere where the soil is dry and it gets full sun - but it needed to be supported and just doesn't look right. I think it may need to be given more space.... Could I cut it down and replant now? Dig up and keep in a pot over Winter to be replanted next Spring?

We have a lovely hawthorn in our front garden. It is a lovely shape and is much admired early in the year. But come July/August it has always lost all its leaves. What is the problem?
