Schefflera dying off

That looks much better, and make sure to not give it too much water

Is it too cold to do hedge cutting?

The council clearly dont think so. They cut back the Pyracantha hedge that surrounds my garden this morning even the temperature dipped to almost freezing last night.

I dont see any natural light near the plant. It should be near a window or such but not in direct sunlight.

Over watering can cause the leaves to brown and drop too.

I find Schlefferas thrive on being under watered with the soil usually on the dry side.

What are you getting rid of...?

I already gave up on Peonies this year, they just dont seem to like me or my garden, so out they went.

 

I cannot wait for the first frost

No frost last night although it was mighty close. 0.3c recorded. Cold again tonight though

Still no frosts here yet. Not that I want any. A jasmine in the garden is full of flower buds so I dont want any :P

When do I cut back Michaelmas Daisy

Haha I grow cineraria to compliment my Cyclamens. A lovely combination.

Cineraria

Usually grown as an Annual in the UK.

It can be overwintered in frost free conditions I believe.
