that's the one nutcutlet. Thanks
The first 3 respond very well to being hard pruned in my experience. Best done over the winter months.
I have the same Olearia ( no 4 ) in this garden, but it was here when we bought the house 3 years ago. I've never had to prune it.
no 1 Cherry laurel,prunus laurocerasus.
2 Portugal laurel, prunus lusitanica
3 Eleagnus ebingii
4 Olearia of some sort
All the very best to you Sweet Pea.
If you're lucky you might pick up a bargain on the table/ chair front after the pretty rubbish summer.
I've a ghost pepper,
Has anyone tried one?
do they ripen like tomatoes? or do they over-ripen , like courgettes?
a friend gave me some seed she bought in Italy. I've got 6 plants, all with fruit, but I have no idea when I should "harvest" them: the instructions were ,strange to say, in Italian.
I'd do it over winter whilst it's dormant.
AWB, I've grown allium and eringyium maritimum from seed I brought back from Corfu. And the owner of the apartment block dug up a chunk of fabulous coral pink canna and it's doing very well.
a friend told me. When they're cheap in store buy them, and freeze your own.
