Cutting Back Penstemons

Posted: 11/01/2015 at 16:34

Leave them for now then cut them down by around 80% in April.

 

The ones in the greenhouse are all doing well. I should get some photos to show you.

The cyclamen in question never went fully dormant and has been repotted twice. I now have a huge Cyclamen in a 2L pot flowering wonderfully in the same spot.

Perhaps a Survey worth doing...

I live on the side of a valley luckily, so all the water runs down it. Never seem to lose any plants to a wet Winter.

Indoor hyacinths - are they ready for some light??

I would put them in light, they look more than ready

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

Posted: 24/11/2014 at 21:24

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