How much to charge...

I definitely want to get more than £2 for the large water lilies. The iris sections, carex etc I was thinking £1    Brooklime 50p.....

Thanks Dave. They were just too good to compost...I'd like to get them a new home and make a little to spend on another area of the garden. Don't want to price too high...I don't want to bring them home again!

I am doing a boot sale tomorrow - never done one before 

I am selling bits and pieces from around the house but mainly pond plants.

I have on offer -

large water lily plants with multiple buds

some smaller water lily plants but still a good size

Iris versicolour  sections

Bowles' Golden sedge - Carex elata 'Aurea'

Kingcup  - Caltha palustris

Brooklime - Veronica beccabunga

all are bare rooted

Any suggestions on pricing.


A fast growing plant to give me privacy.

Clematis armandii is evergreen, a very strong grower and will tolerate some shade, Large leafed, it flowers white blossoms in spring and sometimes has a second flush in autumn. It would need a strong support as it would get heavy but is lovely. Mine is scented - Apple Blossom is the variety. Plant deep, feed well and you will be richly rewarded.

Wekk you live and learn - I didn't know Jolly Bee and Rozanne were one and the same...how did that happen? 

Any advice on propagating Ann Folkard?

name of shrub?

Buddelea does not produce seed pods...

The leaves in both pictures appear to be different in shape.

A picture of the seed pods and the whole bush might be good.

Hedge query

Posted: 17/08/2015 at 21:15

I can't think of any hedging that will grow to 5ft. All would need trimmed to keep in shape.

As you are going to be brushing against this hedge to get past cars etc I would look for something without thorns.

I am also concerned as to what your last hedge died from - if you have the name (or can find out) then you could choose a species not suseptible to that disease.


Any ideas for an entry.....

I don't put any butter cream in, strawberry jam without the fruit pieces.
