You can have the ones in my borders and lawn...

Agree with FG, now is a good time. Is the Fatsia outside already? It would be careful in putting it outside now if it has been inside for years.

They do still need watered as newly planted and it has been dry.

The perennials are likely to be bare roots - so look 'dead' but will grow next year.

Lavender are not likely to grow much until next spring.

 

Climbers also only put on growth after a period of settling in the ground. Clematis really do take 2-3 years to take off.

Are T&M having a laugh!

There must be some demand or they would not sell it. 9cm pots for £15 is astounding though, even if it has a 20% discount with various codes as you cannot use a discount code and free P&P (£7)

HELP - subsiding bank

Posted: 23/09/2013 at 09:56

How unstable is it? It will naturally lose lose soil after it rains.

I put a lot of Dogwood, Juniper and Primrose on a similar though not as steep part of my garden and it has worked well to date. I put in some treated decking boards at the top, middle and bottom of the slope to help contain it as well, with some rocks behind those for drainage and strength with plants in between.

 

what is wrong with my Judas tree?

Posted: 23/09/2013 at 09:44

It looks like mould caused by the area being too damp. I would remove the affected leaves and dispose of them.
