perennial plug plants

Posted: 16/09/2012 at 20:29

Thanks for all your input guys. I have now potted my plants into bigger pots. I put the pots outside a couple of weeks ago but some of them seem to be dying off a little so I am making room to bring them back indoors. The delphiniums seem to have got leggy and have really thin, weak leaf stems so I am hoping they will toughen up over winter.

Thanks Christopher2, you are exactly right, they are very small plants. Thanks for your advice. The last thing I want to do is lose them.

Thanks, they are in small pots at the moment and am hoping they will have grown quite substantially by September.

I have taken advantage of the 36 free perennials from T&M. They have arrived and been potted on. Can anyone advise me if when the best time to plant these out into my garden is? The set includes, lavender hidcote, geum Mrs Bradshaw, digitalis excelsior, penstemon tubular bells, echineacea primadonna & delphinium pacific giants. Thanks

Thank you for your response. I have read a little about peach leaf curl. Do you have any advice on how to cure this, if possible.

Patio Apricot Tree Help!

I have a patio apricot tree (prunus armeniaca) which I purchased in 2011. Last year it was a lovely tree and when the leaves came this year there were no signs of problems. However, the leaves now look to have been eaten by something, of which I can find so sign of, and they are starting to curl slightly and the new growth is looking curled and very unhealthy. Most of the leaves have small holes in them. I have taken several photographs if anyone has any advice.
