Growing Sweet Peas

Great,Shaun.don't forget to pick them.  The more you pick, the more you get.

Buddlia. Can you create a cutting for planting?

Posted: 11/07/2014 at 19:36

You need an unflowered shoot. It's probably a bit late for a wild one, I bet it's in flower. If you keep an eye on it, you could try a hardwood cutting in the winter.

Dahlia Bishop's Children

Posted: 11/07/2014 at 14:09

I grew Bishops children from seed this year. I put one to a 7cm square pot.  Some are now sending up flowers, but mostly I have pinched them to make them branch. Some got attacked by slugs and that made pinching unnecessary. I have lined them out  in the veg patch this last week, most of them are forming tubers now in the pots.  I expect them to flower from August through to the frosts . Seed grown dahlias usually flower later in the season than tuber grown dahlias.

 I will pick the best to save overwinter, for an earlier display next year.

Ok I've been busy while you lot have been rabbiting. Shredded the philadelphus and viburnum I murdered, and big bits of hawthorn. Fed OH  and made coffee.

Now I've just got to gather up all the little bits of hawthorn and shred those.

When should I plant out my Verbena Bonariensis?

Posted: 11/07/2014 at 13:39

The ones I had not cut down overwinter were sending up side shoots. I used them as cuttings when I cut the plants down to about a foot in Spring.  Easy to root and extra plants for free to dot about.

I'd pinch out the tops to make them branch and then plant them out as a group.

Labelling

I've started to use a brother labeller with laminated labels. The ordinary labels fade.

Fantasy garden

Other papers have fantasy football, or fantasy portfolio. As we can't do much in our real gardens at this time of year, let us have a fantasy garden
