One of my lavender plants has died, can I plant a new one in the same place. I know you cannot do that with roses so does this apply to lavenders?

Thanks, Dove will feed it, never did that last year. Lots of well rotted  compost here (we have horses).

Yes, I keep dead heading but the flowers get smaller and eventually stop. My butterflies not impressed!

I always prune my Buddlia in March but find it stops flowering by the end of July. Can it be cut back in stages - half now, half later on?

Sweetpeas vanished

Thanks everyone. Never thought of birds and the door has been open a tiny bit. Find the mouse traps now I guess!

My sweetpea seeds have vanished!  Sowed them 10 days ago as normal. Pots in cold GH but covered with bubble wrap. Only one seedling has appeared. I decided to investigate and tipped a couple of pots out and no sign of the seeds. No sign of mice scrabbling in the pots so I have a mystery. Now to re- sow but this time the pots will come indoors to the utility. Any ideas anyone where the seeds went to?

Planting lavender

I have just bought new lavender plants in 1.1/2 ltr pots. Can they be planted out now?  We are still having frosts here. At the moment  they are in a cold greenhouse.

Does anyone know where I can buy seeds. Thompson and Morgan no longer stock these. Grew them last year but had a disaster so could not save our own seeds.
