Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 20/02/2016 at 15:07

The lovely sunshine of the last two days has been replaced here in Norfolk by soggy ground and constant drizzle - I've been out to fill the bird-feeders but there's no gardening being done here today

You can try ... few succeed ... the rest of us either go mad, give up gardening or take the line of least resistance and learn to enjoy them ...

I actually look forward to seeing them ... and I have planted a cultivar this garden.  That being said, it's not as 'spreading' as the wild type.


Moving a Cistus

How big is it?  I've moved smaller ones but I'd not try to move a well-grown one (my parents had one about a metre high and at least the same across). 

If it's not too big, and you're going to move it I'd do it in a few weeks' time as the soil begins to warm up.  Prepare a sunny spot well with plenty of grit to ensure good drainage.  Make sure you get a good rootball and water it in well then don't water again unless there's a real dry spell or the leaves begin to droop.  More cistus are killed by overwatering than by drought.

I agree - I've not been at all happy with their plants and only buy seeds from them nowadays.

Pat - thanks for the link to the programme - unfortunately all I get is a message saying it can't be viewed outside Australia - but please say thanks to your OH for trying

Good to see you again Rusty Spade   I remember your giant parsnip and your son's prizewinning pumpkins!  Are you going to grow pumpkins again this year?

Self collected seed not germinating

I find that aquilegia seed is best sown fresh (at the time that it happens in nature) rather than dried and sown later.  Maybe delphinium seed is the same.
