Perennials

Posted: 08/09/2013 at 12:14

I had some perennial plugs in the past, in my case they were so tiny that I had to overwinter them before they were big enough to be planted out the following year. What types have you got and how big are they?

Geranium attack!

Probably are cabbage whites, I would just pick them off. It's late in the season both won't be here that much longer

Looks as if the couple of packets of seed have done you well. I've tried mixes of woodland, perennials and wildflowers from the likes of johstones etc.

It's been enough to get things started but on the whole I find that growing the actually plant/flower from seed that you want has been quicker, better and cheaper.....you can collect the seed as well

Not ever tried honeysuckle, I've had good success with clemantis dipped in a rooting powder.

If you''ve got the space and time maybe layering a honeysuckle branch into the ground? Not tried it myself

I got a few geums from a t&m offer a couple of years ago, they were tiny when I got them...........size of  a finger nail. It's been their first year in the garden, can't say that I was that impressed but will leave them be for now, it might be what others suggest that they get better in time?

The ones I planted in a sunny spot have given me a few flowers, the ones in a partial shade spot, no flowers but a lot of healthy growth
