Help with Acer

Posted: 20/10/2017 at 17:14

Acers leaves scorch very easily either from wind or sun (especially straight after rain). I suspect it was left in an exposed place at the shop or in transit. This late in the season, I would leave well alone. The leaves will drop very soon anyway. Make sure you keep it in a sheltered place so next year's new leaves don't go the same way.

Sorry, but can't help with ID.

Thanks for the advice Dove. I'll give it a go.

Re the VB cuttings: If taken now, do they survive the winter? I always thought they were annuals. My Mum has some and they need cutting back. Could I cut them and bring them home, perhaps wrapped in wet tissue, a trip that takes at least 30 mins? When rooted, do how do you overwinter them?

Thanks for the link Mark56. I'll have to give it a go as I'm never sure who's eaten it during the night and I know the magpies polish off anything left in the morning.

I've found poo like this in my garden. I do get hedgehogs and thought they may have been eating the berries from my winter box. I get blackbirds too but it looks too big to have come from a blackbird! No ivy berries in my garden but plenty across the road on the farm.

My flowers are just starting to open. I think it must be a later flowering variety; it has pinky/lavender flowers. I will have to start cutting back very soon and this will be ongoing through to winter. We wouldn't be able to get to the back door if we didn't cut back the new growth at least once a week!

There are lots of plants sold as annual that with a bit of TLC can survive the winter. The GC's are hoping we will go and buy new ones every year!

It often depends on what type of winter we have and where you live etc.

Watching Seedlings Grow 2017

Posted: 17/04/2017 at 17:29

That's what we all say Bright star!

I sowed my free GW mag cornflower seeds on Saturday afternoon. On checking them this morning, I thought they were starting to grow. Have been out all day and have just checked again and, sure enough, there is about 8 of them well and truly 'up'. Is this a record? Although they don't need it, they are in a heated propagator just because that was the only place I hade space for them!

If the conditions are right, I think they will spread anyway. In our community farm garden, which has been very neglected, they have spread everywhere!

I'm on a laptop and have the Hater lawn mower ad that keeps playing a jingle every time I click on something.
