Thanks to everyone who responded to my initial post.  My 2 standards are coming on quite well but apart from keeping the side shoots removed I find that the plants are now throwing shoots from the base of the plant, does this mean they need a larger pot or should I just keep removing these shoots like the side shoots.

Decorative Stones = Wet Garden

Posted: 04/02/2014 at 10:22


I want to change my soggy lawn for decorative stones. The garden is nearly always wet leaving the lawn like a bog. I live in a rural area so get lots of leaves in the winter too. What is the best way to go about laying stones? I know I have to kill off the lawn first but I am not sure of the best weed barrier to use under the stones to let rain through.

Hi Heliotrope thanks for your advice, do you have any suggestions as to what variety would give best results, I do like the double size flowers but I have onl;y come across those in trailing types.

Hi I am new to the forums, so I apologise in advance if this topic has been raised before. I would like to grow a standard fuschia having only grown trailers before. Is it possible to grow a standard from a trailing variety?
