Should I do that with mine as they have only been in the border about 6 weeks?

Short Variety Shrubs Suggestions?

Posted: 08/08/2015 at 18:54

There are several short hebe varieties that are evergreen but will give summer flowers as well. They've some in a flower bed at my local supermarket and they look attractive all year. A good garden centre should have a selection.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Deadheaded the buddleia bushes to help them continue flowering as long as possible. Should water pots tonight as still no rain . Good weather for sunbathing, but borders are too dry to plant anything new. My clay soil is like concrete!

yellowing leaves on bay

My lollypop bay tree has leaves turning yellow from the edges. It is rather pot-bound and I wonder if that's the reason or if it's due to the dry weather. It's in a big pot but I may not have watered it enough. It looked really until recently, even bearing fluffy flowers. What sort of feed should I give it?

I haven't got any of those but I've camellias and skimmias that like ericaceous soil so I suppose I could put them under those?

I bought a box of cheap tea bags and they taste awful. Can I use them in the garden other than adding them to the compost heap?
