Seed swap

Posted: 11/11/2013 at 12:58

To those who I sent some seeds out that I thought were Thalictrum flavum, I apologise. I dug the plant up and found the oroginal label- It is still a 6ft yellow thalicrum, but the label says  Thalictrum sphaerostachyum.  Plant world describes it as an improved T flavum.

I also have to add some Rosa glauca seeds, and some  Acanthus spinosus seeds.

HELLO FORKERS!

Charles Darwin was an amateur naturalist.

 He studied Medicine at Edimburgh, and for the ministry at Cambridge, but lost interest in both. He did have a private income, which enabled him to pursue his interests.

The rickvan man channel is quite entertaining.He is obviously a beginner in the gardening area, but his presentation skills, as a one man presenter, cameraman, soundman, etc, are really good.perhaps if the beeb are looking for new talent, they could combine someone with good gardening techniques, with someone with good presentation skills.

Help!!!!

They look like the dreaded  vine weevil grubs. They will chew through all your roots. Pick them out and feed to the birds or drown them  in boiling water.

Ivy climbing on neighbour's wall

Posted: 09/11/2013 at 22:07

We have ivy all over the place. It was growing up the garage wall. I cut it at the base and let it wither. It was getting too high up in the oak tree. I cleared an area at the base of the tree. All the ivy up the tree has died and fallen off. I dont see what their problem is. they can cut it and peel it themselves. If you try and peel it off while it is still alive, the aerial roots (suckers) will pull off mortar and leave a right mess.  A lot of mine is common stuff that creeps in from the wood next door. I  don't expect the owners of the wood to clear it, I do it myself. Where it is causing no problem,  I leave it for the birds and insects.
