Geranium cuttings

Posted: 21/09/2016 at 16:46

Emma, they are one of the easiest cuttings to take, compost straight from the bag around the edge of the pot and just leave them to it. You don't even need to water them. They thrive on neglect. It really is that simple. Light doesn't a matter much a light windowsill is fine.

My Kousa Dogwood is dropping its leave...

Right now Sven a lot of leaves are going over early it's been dry over the last 6 weeks and the downpour's we've had have often not penetrated the soil to any depth. Thus trees and shrubs go into survival mode and start dropping leaves. I really wouldn't worry.

North Facing Wall

Posted: 20/09/2016 at 19:22

Mine grows on. North wall. Covered in flowers every year. It does have a tendency to drooping at times as they are very vigorous despite training but I don't mind as the drooping effect just means the flowers are more easily seen and sniffed. Lovely scent. One of my clients has one on a west facing wall which does a similar thing but hers suffers from powdery mildew but that's really down to the way it was planted into a cobbled area with a drain close by so it doesn't get the water it needs. Mine doesn't seem to suffer from sawfly, they seem to prefer the ramblers I have or my shrub roses. Personally I wouldn't be without it.

Height is determined by rootstock Sue. If it's not on the right rootstock it won't grow much bigger than the stated height.

Are they any good?

Chrissy I can't say I've ever found any compost fork any use whatsoever. I've come across many but found there's little substitute for a pulling it all out and putting it back in. I can appreciate an injury, my back isn't what it was, but I just grin and bear it then go and dose up on painkillers for a week.

Totally agree Verdun a good prune and it'll bush nicely.

Planting / growing Tree Lilies

They do like decent drainage, all Lilly's do. Bulbs are usually planted early spring and flower first year. If you have decently drained soil they'll over winter quote happily in situ. Decent drainage through is key to survival in soil or pots.
