Cheese plant issues

Posted: 16/06/2013 at 21:38

It's been a while since I've grown one of these. I don't think you need to repot very often and if you get any rooting from the stems, allow them to grow down and bury them in the compost.

Anyone ever grown dwarf delphiniums and hollyhocks

Posted: 16/06/2013 at 21:23

I haven't grown the dwarf types, but I'm guessing they will probably flower next year. How big are they? I've over wintered hollyhocks and larkspurs in a cold frame

They look a lot prettier nut and dont have that horrible smothering effect either

aubretia question

I would say they do benefit from a good hair cut after flowering. I'm going to leave some seed heads on some to see if they self seed. I think if they like where they are they should self seed. Not much success at growing from seed, but I think it's possible to take cuttings, not tried it myself though

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
