My healthy looking potentilla fruiticosa

Posted: 23/07/2013 at 17:20

I've been pruning each year to keep it small.  Gulp!  I'll leave it alone for a bit.  Thank you so much everybody.  I haven't figured out how to put photos on here yet.

Had no replies yet, maybe that means its just in the wrong place.  Could I move it in September?  And, are the roots very deep?

it stopped flowering three years ago.  Its only about nine years old and looks very healthy.  Its in a poorish, dry soil but I feed and water it in the summer from time to time.  Its the lovely tangerine one.  Can anyone advise please?

You are very, very kind but I don't know how we'd make that work.  Thank you anyway.

Oh, you're right, there were two different plants and I lost them both.  A lovely, stripey tiger begonia which does well indoors all year and in shade and gets tiny flowers on it sometimes.  I also had a piggy back plant which is fresh green and has minature leaves growing above the existing ones.  Its TWO plants I've lost as well as my mind.  The further I go towards 70 the dafter I get.  Any ideas please (about the plants I mean - not my head).

I had a Tiger Begonia (Tolmiea) for years and gave away lots of cuttings.  I've now lost my original by leaving it out all winter.  I can't find one to buy anywhere.  Anyone know where I can get one please?

Mine still has flowers on it from very early spring but the seed pods are now flourishing.

Alliums

My heart is in my mouth every time my alliums come into flower because they are so blown about.  They always seems to survive and look gorgeous.  This year, because of the high winds I've given in to temptation and staked them.  Do you usually stake yours - how - and are they OK?

Clematis Suggestions

We have a clematis Polish Spirit.  It is a lovely deepish purple and blooms well every year.  It never goes above six or seven feet and is very hard indeed.  Its a late bloomer that you prune to the ground every February.  A beautiful plant.

Don't know.  Does it come again if you keep it year after year?  Do you lift your tulips each year.
