I have decided to get some for an Autumn  sowing, Doc has convinced me, only thing now is I will need to look through and order the whole 10 packets, I have not long done  that for the last lot I bought. 

I am a seed addict ! 

Last grass mowing

Posted: 26/09/2015 at 13:35

It's very wet here so last mowing is mid November, if we're lucky.

i like to keep the front roadside cut if I can as it's covered in snowdrops and if the grass is long the look is spoilt. 

As you know I love exotic/ foreign plants!

That's mine, but when I put it out in the Spring, the leaves died off as a new one grew, so the bottom ones dropped off, I brought it in the conservatory and its growing lovely, even has three baby figs on it now.

So don't plant out now then, should I repot as they are a bit tight?

Keeping hydrangea over winter

Posted: 26/09/2015 at 13:29

I have hydrangea cuttings grown on in pots that I did about three years ago, still in their pots, never brought them in for the winter, but maybe if you are up North somewhere some glass protection may be good.

i have Obe's  problem if I prune too early in the Spring so I don't touch them till April.

I did buy a fig tree but it refuses to grow outside, don't know if I can accommodate it in a few years time!!

Lovely Vedun,

I have just bought four Agastache Orange Sprite, I don't usually buy but at four for a tenner seemed OK,  can I take cuttings now or is it too late, or not cuttings at all.?

The most exotic I have is a Bird of Paradise, and have sown some seeds of the Pitcher plant.

As the title suggests, exotic usual means plants from warmer climates, do you have those conditions, unfortunately I don't!
