This article says it does. http://homeguides.sfgate.com/dianthus-spreading-plant-68854.html  When I've grown them they form cushions over a foot wide, red thyme is 12" to 18" wide. You plant both 8" - 12" apart, so you would need the same number of plants for both.

Not something I've ever down, but I somehow feel they wouldn't be very happy.

Growing a Clematis

I was going to say what nutcutlet said. Dead trees fall over, cut it down and plant the clematis up an obelisk instead.

I have just pruned my Choisya Ternata hard back as it was overflowing onto the path. I looked up about pruning, sites said after flowering. It had flower buds on it but the spring ones often get caught by frost and rain and I couldn't wait so did it anyway. I usually find the autumn flowering is better.

Can you identify this plant?

Fatsia Japonica, too.

I often get mole damage in borders, Fairygirl, one of my main frustrations, but not often in the lawn and the topsoil is very thin. We are on limestone rock. We have hares not rabbits. That moley bit is often a bit boggy, must have a clay pocket there.

What is your weather like?

It was really warm and sunny today in SW France. On the way back from daughter's at 6.30pm the car said it was 18° outside. Got back to find it was 21° in the GH with door and windows open and it had been 34°. Some of the baby plants looked a bit unhappy.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Busy - so many babies!   English or French?

 

French plug plants from https://www.jardinexpress.fr/  I had ordered about 200, but I keep finding 2 plants in each plug so I've been separating them. Should have over 350.

Didn't do any today as went to daughter.
