Cutting Back Penstemons

Posted: 30/08/2014 at 22:40

I got some tiny penstemons a few years ago from an T&M, size of my thumbnail. Two maybe three years later, I've got some lovely pushy plants now. I moved mine last year and think I cut them back hard in the Winter/early Spring.

Good news on your cuttings Matt. I've taken cuttings for the first time this year. The new growth on yours sound promising  No growth on mine,but they haven't keeled over and died so I'm hopeful

You wont regret the time you spent planting them Fishy, where ever that might be. They are such lovely plants, great for early emerging insects. Even if a few survive they will go on and multiply......... you will always get some show.

The only thing I've learnt from planting them as with all the smaller bulbs is plant more! Chuck them in

It looks like it's all out of control over there,not good for anyone. Is there a way that you can let his landlord know (if they don't already)?

Didn't realise that's what hogweed looks like when it's gone to seed, I saw those shapes when I first moved here. Something nice about the structure of it.

 

 

Help. Not sleeping.

I sleep like a log, but one thing I found helpful when I didn't, was putting a few drops of Lavender essential oil onto my pillow. Natural,cheap and effective
