Thanks for the info .... Will it be OK to leave them in the pts/tubs.... Once the leaves have gone brown do I leave them or cut it off at compost level .

Hi we have about 25 pots /tubs of spring bulbs that have now finished flowering ...I dont want to lift them and dry them off ... Can I leave them in the pots and what do I need to feed them on  if anything now.  

Has anyone received their November 2012 issue yet?

Rudbeckia in Planters

Posted: 24/10/2012 at 16:04

Hi I am very new to gardening and purchased two Rudbeckia plants

Rudbeckia Goldsturm & Rudbeckia Cherry Brandy.  Both are planted up in 20inch planters, both are still in flower. With Winter coming fast I just need to know hows best to protect my plants. I dont have a greenhouse and we are south facing but quite open from winds off the moors of Lancashire.  Any help is much appreciated.

Hello again we have a Acer as about. Its a great tree and have provided many years of pleasure with its brilliant colours. But it is now getting on for 25 years old and we need to reduce the canopy as its causing to much shade on our boarder. When is the best time to prune this back and how much can we cut it back.

Hi we have two Rudbeckia plants that we purchased earlier this summer to provide that splash of colour during this time of the year. We live in the North West of the UK in Lancs, What do we need to do to ensure the plants will return next year.  Any help would be great. The garden is South facing but is quite open and gets winds from off the moors.
