Mildew on penstemon cuttings

Posted: 05/09/2015 at 19:26

Every year mine do that, Nadia, I take no notice then in the Spring I cut then down so they bush out from the bottom, the new growth will be fine then just chop off the mouldy bits. Works for me every year.

They will probably turn into crane flies.

Slug resistant plants

They eat my heucheras and campanula glomerata. A lot of the above mentioned are also rabbit proof. Hopefully, next year I will see.

Pulmonaria 'Roy Davidson' dying?

Mine are the same now, I just grab in one hand and chop all the leaves off, i did it last month and they have grown some fresh leaves, I am sure yours will come back fine next Spring.

Problem Solving

We have the same problem here, open farmland on all four sides and never had them in the garden before. Its just not possible to fence so have given up on certain plants and looking for ones they don't like.

loads of my flowers have been eaten to the ground, very disappointing but thats nature I suppose, my cat doesn't catch anything, he's scared of his own shadow, literally, the pheasants terrify him!

I try to net the veg but that just gets blown over, I have given up for next year, just runner beans, they didn't eat those or leeks and parsnips, they don't like herbs, 

A whole tray of Gaillardia, coreopsis, pansy, all gone.

Jeff, Nut and I are going to save our seeds for Spring sowing now, it's a bit late for this year.

we could swap seeds next year maybe.

When to mulch perennials?

I do it in the Autumn as well, just compost I have made during the year, and like Verdun, when I plant out.
