Perennials planting time

Posted: 25/09/2013 at 20:23

Hi, if your plants are of a good size I think now is a great time to plant out. The soil is warm and the weather is still mild, great for putting on roots in the ground for next year

Hello Gardengirl, I have loads of the false sunflowers, it will have to be the roots again as it's been cut back now. One thing I did this year was to cut a top off the plant, stuck in some compost and it grew !

This year again it attracted loads of insects and butterflies. I'm no expert but I think it might do better in the ground than in a pot. It seems to be a spreader, I dug out loads of it last year, but you wouldn't know that now!

The white campion has flowered this year  so am leaving it to self seed hopefully, and the honesty plants are coming on great, looking forward to seeing them flower next year. Been a bit amiss with the white mallow, just planted them out.........but if they have survived this far they will be fine.

Defintaley pinch the tops out, the more you do the bushier they become

Echinacea plants

I find them tricky plants until they are established and they take a while to do that.  Sounds like you've got some good healthy plants. Last years plants have put on a great show this year here

I have one remaining alive plant from seeds sown earlier this year and it's tiny but I will be keeping it in my cold frames over winter

I know them as prayer plants, I've seen some about in the garden centres. Not sure if it's just me but I don't see a lot of houseplants for sale anymore

the sun has helped have lots of flower spikes and seed pods forming

Hello, not done a lot of seed collecting this year but will have a look in my tin to see what I've got. Gardengirl this looks like like a lovely plant, do you think you would have any left? What are you looking for?

Had a very nice time looking back on that thread nut My cleomes were great this year and the verbenias bon and my rudebekias are still flowering

All 3 of mine flowered, they grew one flowerspike each plant, can't say that I was that impressed with the flowers, didn't seem to last very long but I do love the leaves. I left mine to die back so didn't deadhead them. Think they flowered around the same time as yours
