Godieta problems

Posted: 23/07/2017 at 17:48

i've not really looked to be honest. I might try and grow them in pots next time.

They literally snap at soil level as if rotted. Maybe that's the case but I would have thought moving to a new property I wouldn't be getting exactly the same problem. Maybe the clay soil is the issue. Its weird, I have practically grown my entire garden from seed and yet something that should be easy doesn't thrive.

This is pretty much what I have done. They seem to do well initially even getting bushy then die before flowering

I have always had trouble growing Godieta and I don't know why. I tried for several years to grow them in my old house and always had half die and the rest remain looking rough and put on a poor show. I assumed it was something to do with the soil or aspect of the garden. I have however moved house and I am having exactly the same problem. I have plants in multiple aspects and although the soil in both properties was clay, the soil in my new property appears to have been looked after by a keen gardener and has been well amended with organic matter. I successfully grow a wide variety of plants and am a little stumped at what I am doing wrong. 


Any help appreciated

Annual alyssum survived winter

It looks really good and healthy. Ive moved house and it must be a bit milder here as more inner city. Normally they flower even sometimes partly through into December but normally die jan February. I'm growing some more but have been sorting the garden out today and didn't know whether to dig it out or leave it.

I have some alyssum which has survived winter. Do I replace it or will it flower well this year.


Thanks for any replies.

I have a cheap one from the garden centre and they do only last 1 season. Mines completely battered as its gets very windy over winter. It also had to be in a fairly sheltered spot in the garden to not blow away.

Ill try with seed if not ill buy a plant. I think possibly I haven't kept them wet enough.

Anyone had any experience with this. I have tried in the past eventually managed one small plant from a lot of seeds and slugs ate it. I know its a bog plant do I need to be keeping the soil very moist all of the time. Any tips. Thanks
