Propagator stuffed with seeds on Friday and 2 pots have germinated in less than 48 hours. All 'dead' pots emptied or put in gh when discovered to have plants in them. Top dressed cherry and plum trees in pots. Planted an english lavender and positioned solar lights around the garden.
If its just dead flower stalks you're ok to cut those back to the bush.
Lavender, you can cut it back to the start of the bush, maybe a little of the top but do not prune down to old wood. I don't feed mine and they don't seem to be worse off for it.
I have a mophead one and I don't prune it other than shoots going where I don't want them to. I can't comment on the bush type so I'll leave that to someone else on the forum.
I have that in my garden and its four foot tall. I give it a severe chop and it bounces back.
Forsythia, violets, primulas, muscari, anemone blanda, hellebores, pulmonarias, heuchera, cyclamen, nectarine, dog tooth violets, ribes sanguineun, scillas
Hi Ryan, I did mean you, sorry.
I too would like some akebia seeds to try, 10 will do. Thanks
I would go back to b and q after Easter and have a look on their reduced trolley, you might find something then. Maybe something like a lavender would cope with the wind, and then you could have some bedding around it. You could then change it throughout the year and keep it looking interesting.
I would think that no one is remotely interested in her bedroom. If it bother her perhaps a pair of closed curtains or slatted blind would be in order.
Very nice Obelixx. I have that weed problem with block paving. I do the same as you or I blast them with a blow torch. Its easier after its rained to get them out.
I did what you did Fordy at my sisters house. She had a part conifer hedge and wondered what to do so I cut all the lower stems off to a height of 5ft and then mulched with lots of pebbles. Cats were using the area as a toilet and wasn't very nice so near to the house. Its a cat free zone now.
Like Obelixx's idea and would love to see a picture of the parrotia. Is it a tree or a shrub?
