Lewisia advice please

Plant it on its side, growing out of a wall or something. Lewisias don't like wet in the crown.

How much bigger will my Alpines get

Taking it as a clockface.

12 o clock is a sempervivum, it will stay that size and grow slowly.

The one at 7  looks like snow in summer, cerastium, and is not an alpine but is used for ground cover. I would move it out on its own.

Sempervivums look good clumped together.

Plant ID please

Bindweed in my compost bin

Posted: 28/05/2016 at 22:13

I'm currently emptying a tardis into old compost sacks. I have one tardis, two daleks, a rotol  and  two builders sacks full, and I'm running out of space.

Does anyone recognise this plant please

The one at the bottom is a dahlia.

It should be loose enough to extract any bindweed roots, but I would bag it and leave it for the summer before you use it. If there are any roots left, you will see them start to grow. If nothing grows, it will be ok for use as a mulch in the autumn.

Plant ID please

RHS Chelsea Commentary Box: Which Lupin colour?

You can get it as a plant, but easy to grow from a packet of seed now, for strong plants next year.
