Hi all, does anyone know what this plant might be? I ask because I have it labeled as being Helenium Autumn Lolipop and it obviously isnt that, think I got sent the wrong thing

Thanks for the reply - sounds like a sprinkler hose would be better for deep flowerbeds

 

Soaker hoses

Hi all, I have been looking at soaker hoses, there seems to be the sort of porous ones and the more rigid ones with holes in. Has anyone tried these, any good, recommend them? Do they soak a decent area or do you just get a line of wet earth where the hose lies?

I have quite deep flower so cant reach over with the watering can to get to everything and now things are fully grown I cant step inbetween the plants either, so its the normal hose every cople of days but lots of that water must just evaporate in the sun when its on the leaves. I need something that I can snake around the beds to get water to the ground.

Any advice is helpful.

Thanks

Hi all, anyone got any suggestions of flowers that I can sow now-ish for flowering in the autumn / winter - other than the usual pansy and violas

Phlox seedings fallen over

thanks for the replys, I think they were a bit leggy, I grew them by a window so maybe I didnt turn them enough so they kept pulling to the light... Oh well as you say, I will keep these going and can always try again
