Which annual and perenial seedlings should be 'pinched out'?

Posted: 16/03/2014 at 14:36

As I'm a relative gardening newbie, can someone explain what to do when 'pinching out'? It's a phrase I hear a lot, but don't really know what to do.

(Sorry for hijacking the thread quickly!)

Thanks both for the replies. Looks like I'll be finding a spot for it in the border then. Might have to shift some stuff around but I think that will start to make it feel more like my own garden anyway - less like I'm just looking after someone else's!

Wonderful. Thank you all. I might give it a go at moving it to make space for the rose and then just keep a really good eye on it. Watch this space for the post asking how to rid a garden of crazily overgrown houttunia!

Thank you for the replies. 

Would it be content to be moved to another spot? The space its in is pretty sparsely populated so I wad considering using this spot for my rose bush.

Ah, ok I'll bear that in mind. So I'm guessing then that if I dig it up to plant my rose there, it'll probably spring up again around the rose? I'm not sure if I should try it anyway or if this is a recipe for disaster. What would people recommend? Sorry for yet another question!

Anyone know what this is? I don't remember seeing it last year when we moved in. It has sprung up since I cut the poppies back. 

As usual, sorry for the sideways pic!

I have a small area of roses at the bottom of the garden that I inherited. The area is partially shaded and the roses seem to do well, although I'm trying to make them less leggy. I don't know what types they are, but I seem to be doing ok so far with caring for them.

My mum got me a Charlotte rose for my birthday, and I'd like to have this one nearer to the house, as it's special for me. But I'm not sure how best to plant it. Should I just pop it in the border or put it in a pot? I know it needs a sunny spot. I think I'd probably prefer it in a pot but don't know how big this would need to be. And do roses thrive in pots or does it stand a better chance in the border?

Any guidance would be really appreciated. Whereas I feel fine learning as I go with the other roses, I'd rather not take too many chances with this one.

Sorry the photo is on its side again. Seems to be what my phone likes to do!

I'm going for it, but my plan might be wrong!
