Use of a Propagator

Posted: 15/07/2015 at 16:15

They will all root very well on a window sill or greenhouse bench, they don't need a propagator.

they will rot if it's damp.

Someone didn't do their weeding sooner, I wouldn't think it was giant hogweed, you wouldn't leave that to grow in the veg patch.

I repot anything anytime I need to.

they are tough plants, but can't say what size pot because I don't know how big the plant is.

i have some in small pots, totally neglected, never watered through the summer, that I did from cuttings a couple of years ago, they don't seem fussy so put in any pot you fancy. As long as its got plenty of growing room.

Oh Cathy, I can relate to everything you said there. My mum died in March, I kept her at home but it was very difficult, mainly trying to get help from the services, I finally got someone to come and sit with her through the night on the very day she died.

dad is 92 and so far very well, I am dreading it next time round as I expect you are.

as for the Potentillia, rabbits chewed all mine down last night together with a whole row of perennial Gaillardia grown from seeds. 

I don't know why my ipad won't do a capital letter at the start of a new sentence!

thanks Katherine, he was old so to be expected.

Harvesting seeds

yes..and they will go black, then they are ready for picking.

i don't know how many you need to grow but you will get hundreds from a couple of those pods, so if you want to cut the others off, that's ok.

Bees do that, clean off from the back of the flower.

not lack of water.

I thought I would bring this thread to the top for our newbies, I found it very helpful, the kindness of people is overwhelming.

My giant African Land Snail has died, silly really but I am going to miss him.

Sick Hydrangea

Did you click to enlarge it Charlie? It looks all over it to me, even the leaves are starting to go.

you could try cutting just the flower heads off for now, not sure if it will work, but if you see the leaves get any worse, I would cut it right down.

The hydrangea will love it, not sure about the foxgloves.
