To cut back or not?

Posted: 02/01/2016 at 11:05

I love Bowles Mauve too. I trim mine throughout the year, I just take off the tall flower spikes when they've finished. This seems to help to prevent it from getting too woody. I only have a couple of flowers on mine,so am leaving them be for now.

Think they were the first plants I had a go at taking cuttings from, so easy

It's must be so strange to see crocus, daffs and grape hyaciths in bloom now.

Everything is very green and lush here, cooler but no frost.

Rudebekias x 2 types,

annual trailing stock,

Primoses

Goblin gardillia,

White sweet rocket

Bowles Mauve- always flowering!

Cloth of Gold wallflower- I've had this for years

Pulmonaria- Thank you nut, just noticed it flowering today. It's pretty shady where it is, but looks like it will do well there  The flowers are red. It's one that has retained it's label but can't read the writing ha ha. I love these plants

Hardy pink geranium and

a single cosmos and candytuff flower

It was good to be outside and have a look at what's been going on. Shanta daisies have buds on them and the pestenmons cuttings are growing really well should be good plants in Summer. Too wet to do anything though, everything is soggy. Starting a written record this year

Happy new year Marion. Don't often post on your thread but I've enjoyed looking and reading all about your garden.

I grow for the pollinaters too. You are an inspiration, looking forward to what our growing year has in store for us

Water slightly when sown so that the compost is damp and that should be it until they pop through

Love your garden Fairy, very stylish and beautiful. It looks totally different now and bigger than what you describe. You've really made a great space and your own oasis.

Off to a great start Grabs, keep taking the photos as you go
