Growing flowers

Posted: 12/01/2016 at 08:28

The strawberry leaves are last years and like us they show their age.  It'll grow lovely fresh green healthy ones in the spring/summer

Those stones are fine - you don't need to get rid of them - they aid drainage.  Anyway if you did get rid of them the action of rain etc would mean that more would work their way to the top.  You don't want garden soil that looks like the contents of a compost bag

And sieving won't get rid of tiny weed seeds.  Patient hand weeding is the way in that bed.

Hosta

Pdoc I think the answer is to plan friendly snowdrop walks incorporating sticky cake and coffee/tea

also we should be organising those seeds we didn't get around to sowing last year, and ordering some more

and most important - get Fg to wave her wand to arrange fine spring weather from St David's Day onwards

Dividing Clematis

Posted: 12/01/2016 at 06:04

I'd be careful - damage low down on the plant is how Clematis Wilt infection strikes.

I'd rather take cuttings/layers.

Which subjects............

Might go for a short stomp to see some snowdrops this year if it warms / dries up a bit Dove

That would be a lovely idea.       Drying up would be good.

Removing leylandi

Posted: 12/01/2016 at 05:43

Leylandii won't regrow from the stumps even if you don't grind them out - they'll just rot down eventually, so although leaving the stumps isn't ideal it's not a disaster either.

However, if you want to grow something else there it's good to get rid of them.

Good luck
