BARNSDALE GARDEN TRIP.

Posted: 17/06/2014 at 12:06

Nut, I've got one  and RHS card. 

ID for 2 plants. please.

Posted: 17/06/2014 at 12:03

 

The first looks like one of the annual bedding varieties of mimulus with loads of blooms!

The second looks like a heuchera.

Can anybody tell me what this is?

I agree Punkdoc -  Persicaria affinis I think - lots of different varieties - I like them but they need to be kept in their place.

Some general info here http://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/67494/Persicaria-affinis-Superba/Details 

New Hedge and Weeds

As well as agreeing with Fleurisa, I think they'd stop you weeding efficiently and if mounded up against the hedge saplings might cause rot to set in 

New Hedge and Weeds

Unless your hedge has been planted through a weed suppressant membrane I think the only answer is weeding.  

Make sure that you weed a good strip about 3 feet wide with the hedge in the middle - that will help stop weeds creeping into the hedge.

Sorry 

Confetti from Rose petals

Posted: 17/06/2014 at 10:54

I bought rose  and other flower petal confetti for my daughter's wedding - it was dried and kept for a long while. 

I think that to use petals fresh they would need to be picked that morning and kept cool but not cold. 

does anyone grow ?

Hi lucky - sorry you've had some difficult times - hope that life is getting better.  

The Buerre de Roquencourt are growing nicely - they germinated quickly and according to everything I've read they crop quite quickly too, so if you can get the seed I'd have a go, if you've got the time and energy.  

I got my seeds from  http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Premier-Seeds-Direct/Beans-/_i.html?_fsub=9717829

they just called them Rocquencourt. 

 

Don't go putting yourself under added pressure though - the garden will always be there and supermarket beans are quite edible when push comes to shove.  Sometimes life gives us other priorities for a bit.

Best of luck 

What to do with rhubarb?

Posted: 17/06/2014 at 10:36

Well rotted, always!

Fresh needs to be rotted down stacked in a clamp or added to the compost heap - depending on quantity 

I never put fresh manure anywhere near plants - it can burn them.
