Lupins help with cutting back...

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 22:45

If you cut the first flower stems off when they are done, your likely to get a second and maybe third flush depending on your plant. They do get eaten a lot, but they are tough plants once they get established and should come back for many years.

They do tend to get eaten by lots of things. If you protect the new shoots next year when they are just poking thorough, that will give them the protection they need to get going.

The dried stalks of the plants I think would make great homes for hibernating insects so I tend to them until Spring before I cut them down.

Basal cuttings are really easy to do, you keep your favourite plant and it's a lot quicker than growing from seed

Have you thought about Sweet rocket? I know them in white and purple, I've always thought that they would  look and smell amazing  in a wedding.  Touch and go whether if you get them to flower for next year now though

Music in the Garden

A bit of Bob Marley is good for the soul, just like my other favourite Bob..........Dylan

Great poets,both of them. Loving the Kate Bush revival that's going on at the moment, such a part of my life.

He's been with me for the last couple of months, but still loving Morrisey/The Smiths. Might be that I didn't really get into him when I was young. Dour depressing and very funny all at the same time

Hi Lily, been trying to have a chat as well, will keep trying

Then just don't read or reply to it David K, it's as simple as that.

I do find your tone almost bordering on the aggressive and bullying. People are free to post what they like, whether people respond it is up to them and them only.

I'm not part on the "we", I'm me
