There was a nice big patch of it at Bressingham. I thought it would make a good filler for arrangements. Like gypsophila , only blueish.

Fur trees

They look like lawsons cypress. Do not cut back into old wood. They will not resprout from brown wood. Just lightly trim the green bits to keep in shape.

Dry clay soil

Organic material is the only thing that will do it. It holds water like a bath sponge. Add as much compost, finely shredded bark or well rotted farm yard manure as you can get.If you can get used mushroom compost from a mushroom farm, that is good, but it contains lime so don't use it on acid lovers such as azaleaa or rhododendrons. Adding  sand or grit is useless, it just makes concrete.

I think they were late going in, given a bit of flower feed, they will probably flower some time in August.

Dont panic yet.
