HELLO FORKERS May 2016 Edition

Posted: 30/05/2016 at 09:38

I have too many plants. I can meet up for a plant swap, any day next week if anyone in South Yorks or north notts is interested.  Actually I probably don't want to swap, just find homes for them.

I will do a list later on.

Tree Wysteria

They generally need a frame of some sort. There is a beautiful one in The Park in Nottingham, trained over ironwork supports to a tree shape.

Well drained and Sandy soil. In heavy clay they will rot.

Bulbs too small or not planted deep enough.

Can anyone identify this?

Linaria purpurea.  It seeds around a bit but the bees love it. Just pull out any you don't want. It's easy to remove if it's in the wrong place.

Yes, a lovely hardy geranium.

Please identify this weed for me

You have to trample the stems to break the coating and then use glyphosate. Marestail has roots that go down miles. Good luck.

I now have a dozen in 7cm pots, growing strongly.

Lewisia advice please

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