Buttercups

Posted: 14/06/2013 at 20:05

I would use weed killer, I painted a lot  leaves over the last couple of years and it does work. I've still got them but no where near as bad. I dig them out now but they do have strong tap roots and is difficult to remove completley. I'd cut the flowers off as well.

Saw the buttercup bit of Springwatch, what a difference between the two. The meadow buttercups look to me the type that you hold under your chin

I'm with you on that KEF. Been slowly ridding the garden of this stuff over the last two and half years, it's a lot better this. I would get it out as soon as possible, it really is hateful stuff

Great description  bookertoo. I've had a go and never got anywhere. Picked up a free planter a while ago and to my surprise, there it was I would like to grow it in the ground though so thinking about planting it out but don't want it to die

Great picture of the foxgloves, not got as many as I thought I would have but some are starting to flower Think my sweet rockets are soon to be replaced with Lupins. The heavy rain has finally tipped them over, knew I should have staked them really

No delphs anywhere, a few promising buds though

Dividing Perennials

Posted: 11/06/2013 at 20:30

I'm in first year of  taking cuttings

I'd be tempted to split some of the hardy gereniums. I took some roots cuttings about  5 weeks ago, 2 of them have gone back into the garden and are flowering but the other 2, I've held back and pinched out the flowering tips, to grow them on a bit.

I think they would be alright to split after flowering as well
