June in Your Garden!

Posted: 19/06/2012 at 16:52

@Wintersong I think it's known as Snow in Summer.  When it flowers it's lovely (as it is starting to now) but it is a bit of a thug!  Saying that when it gets too much I just pull handfulls out, doesn't trouble the plant at all.

Actually I've been quite disappointed in T&M this year.  I ordered some plants on Dec 31st and expected them in April.  They arrived a couple of weeks ago.  I too have ordered the May offer and am still waiting. 

Drooping Lupins

Posted: 11/06/2012 at 05:56

My lupins have been in the ground for about 3 years now.  Last week some of the flower heads all started drooping bending back on themselves, however after a few days amazingly they have righted themselves.

National treasure it looks like you were right - I sent a photo to a friend at a major garden centre and he said it was an evergreen honeysuckle called Lonicera Hallian - Thank you!

Rambling Rose Question

Posted: 09/06/2012 at 17:12

I have a rambling rose (Paul's Himalayan Musk) which has an abundance of flower heads ready to explode.  Whilst examing them just now in amongst the ramble I noticed that some of the stems had 7 leaflets which I always thought made them suckers,  However as I was about to start removing them I also noticed that some of the stems with 7 leaflets have flower buds.  I thought that suckers would not flower - does anyone know if different rules apply to rambling roses? 


The other oddity is that I noticed one stem that seemed to have 7 AND 5 leaflets on it with a flowerhead bunch after a 5 leaflet?  Is this strange or the norm?  Any advice greatly appreciated.

Talkback: Most hated plants

Posted: 03/06/2012 at 08:01

I don't know what it's called but both my neigbours have it.  It's a rapid climber (fast like bindweed) with tendrils and I see the flower heads full of potential seed berries poking over our 7 foot tall boundaries waving in the breeze trying to get in to my garden.  It seems seriously sinister, I feel like they are taunting and threatening me. Errrgh!


Talkback: Growing Verbena bonariensis from seed

Posted: 07/05/2012 at 13:18

I grew some of these from seed last year and they did not germinate as quickly as expected.  They took so long I had practically forgotten about them when I noticed they had suddenly all come through.  They did take a long time to germinate but were totally worth it, they even survived our harsh winter so I'm looking forward to some stunning flowers this year.  Don't give up!

Thanks National Treasure, figrat and Celtic_Charmer, all three of your suggestions crossed my mind but I could not find anything definite to identify it.  I suppose the only thing I can do is to wait and see if it flowers.

Thanks again.
