Raising a bed - replanting?

Posted: 18/04/2015 at 09:05

We are just doing exactly the same. Raising by about 6 inches. I've lifted all the herbaceous stuff and small shrubs but have removed lower branches from a fir tree and are hoping for the best.

we did the same last year with another border but all the big stuff was at the back where the soil was higher so they only had an inch or two of extra soil and have been fine.

Brilliant idea. There just isn't enough space at this time of year. X

Would love to see a picture of this if anyone can upload one. Does this mean that you haven't cut the stem back after the flowers have finished?

I have never thought of drying the bulbs once the leaves have died down for storage treehugger, I usually leave them in the pots until it is time to plant them back out again. I am going to try this as it will really tidy the garden up of pots all over the place

I think jpsbcfc is right but I do that a lot Alex as I need the space. Just remember to label the pots! You could give them a feed before digging them up too.

OK Verdun. It might be the clump I was trying to split was very old, over 10 years, and a very large, vigorous plant. I don't know the variety, v tall with orange flowers. Fleshy tap roots went down at least a foot!

I could never get them to reflower until I got some orchid food, the one in the pink bottle. I also water them with cold tea and spray the aerial roots occasionally.
