I have planted these in two ways, one as seeds in pots and also put some seeds straight out in the ground. the ones in the ground have already started. they have also self seeded from an exististing plant. they are yellow varieties as well as the pink.

Good luck

Dry Bank..need suggestions

Posted: 31/03/2012 at 13:57

Hi jason,

I have the same problem area in my garden, My garden is an old quarry, so you can imagine the dry bank on the Southwest side.

Gardeners world gave some great ideas so watch it on iplayer if you can.

Hipericum grows very well on mine, to such an extent that i am trying to clear some of it in order to have some different plants aswell. I thought alpines and some wildfowers too that will spread quickly and seed thmselves.

Prune in Feb or March and you can cut it really hard back to as low as you want it will grow back.

Help - Water in water butt covered in green slime

Posted: 26/03/2012 at 18:51

I would empty it and clean the butt thoroughly and if you can move it to a cool and shady part of the garden. If yourwater butt collects grey water ie from your household taps then I recommend using a water butt treatment to keep it scum free, HOZELOCK WATER TREATMENT is good.

Hope this helps
