Alstromeria

I do seem to have posted this several times by mistake. Anyway thanks for all your comments. I'll leave be for now and only cut back if the leaves continue to yellow and die. Hopefully the new shoots will have some flowers on, shame as it was a riot of flowers and colour last year. A lesson to be learnt. I seem to learn something new every time I go into the garden these days!

Oh dear sorry to hear that. Maybe I will. I do enjoy a bit of pruning though, deadheading, cutting back whatever you like to call it.

hi, a quick one for you.  My alstromeria got frost damaged and I don't know whether to cut off the damaged bits. There are a few new shoots with flowers.


Many thanks

What's wrong with ikea Obelixx? It serves it's purpose. Hall mirror, bosh, done. Back for lunch and out in the garden again.  I've cut out a couple of the old branches and left the top alone. It was a beautiful sight earlier in the year. I just love the vibrant yellow against a blue sky. It hasn't done too badly considering my mum hadn't touched it for about 10 years!

Thanks for the advice. I think I'll do a little bit of both. A little off the top of the few longer stems and then take out some of the older ones from the bottom.


again thanks. Can always count on some sage advice from someone on the forum.


raining today so it's IKEA this morning


have a great break

My forsythia was looking beautiful this spring.  But I'm not sure how to prune it.  Should I just lop off the top foot of all the branches or pick and choose certain ones and cut right back?


Any advice would be appreciated 

Brown magnolia flowers

My stellata is very very well established and been in flower for a couple of weeks.  My soil isn't eracaceous though.  Or at least I've never fed it with anything eracaceous. However I bought another new small magnolia which has never flowered or greened up really.  My partner too with a different variety. I reckon they're very temperamental!

Thanks. Lots of comments to think about.  I must admit it's only in that pot because I thought it was on it's way out, sort of last chance saloon pot!  Maybe I'll plant out once the tulips have bloomed and see what happens next year.  I've got a feeling I may have planted too deep too as I was a bit newer at this gardening lark three years ago.
