Sorry looking plant - ID & pruning?

Posted: 22/04/2017 at 19:00

I think it's a Gaura, they should be cut back after flowering, so I wonder if it's cut right back now, you would lose the flowers for this year. Maybe tidy it up and prune it in the Autumn after flowering.

Only just Joyce, he weighed in at 8.6kg. Much to fat for a cat!

Please do keep us up to date with their progress, I'm sure they'll pick up. You'll be pruning them back before you know it.😀

Other ends of the country Tom, worth asking though, thank you. Some at 3mts would be good, especially for hollyhocks and helenium.

The little plugs take a while to get going, we have had some cold nights, I think they will be fine but keep them in the shade, too tender for direct sun just yet.

Just another thought, when you planted these, were they bare roots or in some kind of net bags, or were they in pots, I assume as you had them done professionally they were planted correctly.

 That's the best way just above a bud, and no, afraid the dead leaves will never come right, as they drop of you can clear them away and hopefully new ones will grow.  Give them plenty of water.  

Don't put any sort of feed on them just yet,  they will try to make top growth at the expense of the roots, let them build a good root system, then you can feed if you want to, but I think you will find they'll be just fine as they are, I've never fed mine.
