Bergenia 'Sissinghurst White'

Posted: 15/06/2015 at 05:37

You could, but they may not come true, dependi ng  on whether bees have visited other bergenias in the neighbourhood. If you want more sissinghurst white, you need to dig them up and split them. The best time is spring when the flowers fade. Discard old woody bits and replenish the soil with fertiliser before transplanting fresh young shoots individually.

If they still have pests on, maybe, but even tatty leaves with slug damage help the plant to photosynthetise and grow, so I would leave them.

Also I need a home for some spare cosmos.

OH is working all next week in Berkshire. Only problem is all hotels are fully booked because of Ascot week. So hes stopping at his twins all week. Which leaves me the small job of getting ready for the party on Saturday. Getting numbers of people coming is like herding cats. Somewhere between 14 and 40 is current best estimate. I might need Kef and co to come and drink 12 litres of Pimms. Now, how many sausage rolls do I need?

Anyone done any gardening today?

Planted the dahlias in the island bed, along with a few salvias( patens and african skies), eight delphiniums, and an odd penstemon red riding hood. I tied up the sweet peas again, and picked the first bunch for the house.

Then it started raining again.

Tall Verbena

Looks like Verbena bonariensis. I'd cut it down to about 2ft, just above a pair of leaves. It will flower later, but you will have more flowers.
