Shrub ID - Best time for harsh cut back??

Posted: 06/09/2014 at 21:00

I've got the berberis but as it isn't part of a hedge, I just trim when it gets to snagging clothes on the path length. I have a vicious bush, abit like gorse that I trim a lot as it sends up new growth constantly and I worry about it catching anyone on the face.

Hi somapop,

it looks like one of those compact multi headed sunflowers. Just keep deadheading for more flowers. Sorry I can't help with what variety of sunflower, I don't know many of the names. Hopefully someone else on the forum will recognise it.

Hi Becki

if you have some left could I have globe artichoke seeds?


I couldn't remember who sent me foxglove seeds, they arrived at the weekend, thanks to who sent them.

Wouldn't mind some more Victoria. Hoping to get round to doing a seed list next week now the little people are back at school.

I record Beechgrove and if I'm up I watch it again on Sunday, just in case I missed anything. If you have Sky its on BBC2 Scotland channel. Good for trials as you do get to see the results. I don't remember seeing results when GW did trials.

Lyn aconitum seeds arrived today. Thanks. Been busy hedge trimming and collecting seeds, not finished the seed bit yet though.

Maybe you need to hand pollinate the flowers or leave your greenhouse door open to let the insects do the job for you.

Plant ID

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
