Pinching out growing tips

Posted: 08/02/2016 at 18:56

I have just googled the Pritchard, it is quite spikey. As it's campanula it will just all shoot out from the bottom in the spring won't it? 

They don't want to be in the house though.

Are you sure they are campanula, which type, they look like verbena bonariensis.

if they are verbena you can cut then right down.they look woody for campanula, but then I don't know all the different types.

Terrifically windy here, I am scared to walk in the garden, lift up one foot to take a step and practically bowled over. Maybe losing some weight wasnt a good idea after all.

Tea with Hosta later, no going out though, maybe make it as far as the polytunels.

I always use seeds from a red pepper from shop. I find they germinate very quickly straight from plant to compost.

I could suggest that when you prune the hydrangea that you cut the stems into more of a ball shape, rather than all one height. Up to you of course.

Aubretia is nice, you can get lots from a packet of seeds and mine has bloomed almost all year round.

Just a little aside. If anyone wants to put a link on, all you need to do is touch the space bar once and it becomes the link, if not, people have to copy and paste in in the search box which is a bit fiddly on iPads or tablets.
