What is wrong with my Veronica Spicata

Posted: 03/06/2014 at 16:22

Peanuts please can I hijack your thread?

My Veronica that was bought a few weeks ago has now finished all it's flowers. Do I cut it back ? If so will it flower again? It has plenty of new growth at the base. I thought it flowered all May & June.

Mr Toast, there might be some local people who would like the plants you are getting rid of, they might even come and dig them up if they can have them   A shame to just destroy them.

Thanks OL I have netting to stop birds and cabbage whites on brassicas, the twigs form a boundry until plot is full so my little mates with whiskers don't go digging Doesn't look great but it works for me.

My first earlies should be ready planted 10th March but I'm waiting until sacks dry out before I empty one to investigate, that's one of my fav jobs. Sacks were almost full to top then I stopped topping up.

Weather not good here so instead of HW I've been taking pics of veggies

Dove that's a lovely thing to do. veg I mean not digging holes

Other than salad leaves & rocket here are my first produce of the season.

Fairy I usually have plenty of toms in GH but if they aren't in the way I leave them where they've grown. If they turn out to be cherry ones we usually get a few off, I don't feed or bother with them, shows they are actually tough plants.
