Posted: 02/10/2016 at 15:18

They can be huge 5m plus but when they get that height they're spectacular. Like any buddleia !take sure you have room for it.

Have your swallows flown south, yet?

They've all gone from here in MidWales. There are a few house Martin's about but no swallows or swifts. Last saw some 2 weeks ago.

Help! Save my rose plant

Posted: 29/09/2016 at 20:59

Emma there's no such thing as an indoor rose. They're just miniture roses grown in hothouses and sold to the unsuspecting by supermarkets. As HC has said get it outside and let the elements get to it. You may have red spider mite and white fly neither of them will like the cool nights.

Poorly apple tree

Probably apple scab without seeing it. It's been rampant this year.

hypericum - what to do now

Aym they're almost indestructible and not fussy in the slightest. A good shrub/ perennial and you can literally cut them to the ground and they come back.

Geranium cuttings

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...

Posted: 20/09/2016 at 19:28

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. 

Grass ID. I hate them personally.
