To cover wood tip or not?

Posted: 18/09/2012 at 09:15

On my potted plants that were supported by bamboo stick, I noticed the bamboo tip were covered with a plastic cover. What is the purpose of them? Asthetic, safety issues or to protect them from rotting?

I recently purchased a trellis made of willow and notice the end were exposed. Do I need to cover them?

Full sun and partial shade

In the far end of my south facing garden, the sun shines from late morning till about afternoon. Would that area be suitable for plants that needs full sun like lavender and thyme. From midafternoon till evening, that corner is fully shaded.

Thanks Daintiness. That is some really helpful information.

I'm planning to plant some winter jasmine to climb on my trellis. I was thinking of planting the normal white jasmines together with the winter variety. Any thoughts?

Is there any other jasmine that will flower throughout the year. Any good variety I should look out for?

May has come early.

I have bees on my dahlias everyday. I think it's a favourite of them.

If I were to get a wisteria cutting and plant them, would they flower by next spring? Are they a fast growing and slow growing hedge plant?

White Aster turning red

Posted: 04/09/2012 at 11:27

My white aster has bloomed really well with lots of beautiful white flowers. But lately, the flower petals are having a slight red tinge on it. Is that normal?

When I bought the white aster, the tag says it blooms for only a season. A quick check on the internet reveals it's a perenial. So which is which?

Do I still need to deadhead the red tinged flowers to encourage new growth at this time of the year or is it too late now?
