Maybe I can help you with gaillardias, i had the ones called kobald, after they flowered, they shot out little side plants, if you dig down you get a bit of root on, pot them up and keep in greenhouse over winter, i have just planted t

By the way, meant to ask someone: how do you include photos in these posts?
Couldn't do it when tried once before; I might have been on iPad at the time - would that make a difference?

If you have the toolbar showing (above here) you can do it. Click on the tree and click select, then when the number is in the box, click upload then save, it should work for you then.

Compost heaps and rats

Sometimes, if you live in the country you cant avoid rats, compost bins or not, but, dont ever put cooked food in the bin, and keep it forked over regularly, they dont like disturbance. If you choose the rat killer way, we have found the only one that works is Neosorexa gold, they seem to be immune to all the others.

Quick growing rhododendron or azalea - is there such a thing?

If you look on the labels when you choose them, it will say eventual height and over how many years, internet sites will be the same. they are all different, some azaelias stay small for pots others grow huge, none grow particularly fast, its best to read the labels.

Some do, but what they dont like is hot roots, never put a fucshia in a black pot as it absorbs heat, plant something around it to shade the roots., a bit like clematis.
