White allssum will grow anywhere.

Sow them late march

These will flower.

Throw the ones you have out if leggy.

waterlogged sunken bed

I dumped all my heavy clay at the local tip.

If left it will only cause problems every time it rains.

Heavy frosts will also break it up, you could try to dig it all over leaving the lumps and the frost will break it up.

I have had the same problem with parts of the garden as my house is a new build.

Large rocks, clay and everything else was buried in my garden and what I did was clear the lot out hundreds of bags of clay and large pieces of rubble.

Top soil, compost ( 20 x 75 litre bags ) soil conditioner  were all added and now my soil is perfect.

This was not a job just for the weekend it took me weeks to do it and the area I did was 32 feet long by 6 feet wide.

You may need to check the soil what the lawn is on as well.

Rose Suckers Taking Over

Posted: 25/01/2014 at 20:42

Remove the soil around the suckers and pull up the suckers but do not cut, you need to twice the break the sucker from the root

The roots on your roses may be damaged which is the cause of your suckers.

herbaceous plants

I am now planning my next project, which I need about 40 herbaceous plants, but I want mature plants and the last ones I got from parkers were very small and crap.

Can  anyone tell me where is the best place I can get them from online.
