Been growing aubrietta over a wall. If you cut it back hard after flowering it will really spread

I've taken cuttings here and hoping for the best. Picked mine up from a market last year and they grew into lovely shrubs

Got a couple of the bowles mauve type, bought them from a market last year.They have flowered their socks off for about 9 months, grew into lovely shrubs. Not looking so great now. I've got the purple coloured leaves and the buds on mine as well. I've hastily taken some cuttings, if they don't take I will definatley get some more and have a go at taking some cuttings next year

Good news, I don't do the email thing so always use this. It's a shame that you can't go back farther than the last 100 posts

I'm happy that the smell of Spring is the air, the daffs are finally opening and  the grape hyacinths are popping up.

purple loosestrife and ragged robin

Posted: 12/04/2013 at 20:21

Hi Peter, I got a ragged robin plant last year and it seemed to do ok in a heavy clay soil which is in partial shade so doesn't really dry out. I collected the seeds and have some more new plants planted in different parts of  the garden.Not sure how they are going to perform though.

Don't know anything about seeding a lawn sorry, but do think we are all might get some more frosts this year

Seeds are up

Posted: 11/04/2013 at 21:27

My early sowings seemed on the whole to  have  pulled  though  and some annuals sown outside in the frames have germinated.

Corn cockle seeds off the swop, have germinated and looking very strong
