Mice or voles will take tops of daffs and tulips.

Weed membrane good or bad?

Posted: 24/03/2015 at 09:16

If you have used the correct membrane the water will drain through. I cant see from the picture but that looks like plastic sheeting, the correct stuff looks like a woven mesh. It will stop the weeds coming up through, but seeds will blow into it and those yoh will have to pull out.

I dont really like hotlips or bowles mauve the following year, I take cuttings late summer ready for this Spring planting, they will grow into big bushes and flower beautifully in the same year. I dont think its worth having the straggly old plants around.

spreading all over - id if possbile please

These benifit from being split up and replanted every 3 or 4 years, when they are clumped together they dont bloom Very well, you will have loads of green, not many flower stalks.
