PELAGONIUMS

Posted: 01/08/2012 at 15:33
Its the end of July and most of the pelagoniums I bought as plugs in March to grow on till May then put into beds have not yet flowered. In fact a few have hardy grown. I know the weather hasn't helped but why are the same ones flowering in the pots, albeit smaller than usual?

Yellow loosestrife and a hardy-geranium which I think is cranesbill. Not too bad if they are in a large bed but the geranium has taken over a small island bed, covering all others, despite a fame thinning it out each year. Also,
Hypericum, asdlovelya shrubs but sends its roots all over my gravel garden and even penetrates the planting fabric.

We are changing some fence panels where there are many climbers and I may have to cut some things away. There is a Virginia creeper, a climbing rose, honeysuckle climbing hydrangea (Lacecap) and a clematis. Will I do much harm if done now?

Ok. Thanks.i will leave them but eventually I will put them in pots in the conservatory. Can't stand the annual battle of the beetles. The lollies were given to me by a neighbour when she moved and grow to over 4 feet. I might enjoy them more without the holes. Thanks again
