Moving a Potentilla

Posted: 10/07/2016 at 15:35

Sorry, I forgot to mention it was only planted last year, so not sure if that makes it easier move?

My Potentilla is currently flowering and looking lovely but I have noticed it is a being a bit overwhelmed by a nearby Nandina. I am guessing now is not a good time to move it, when if at all, should I attempt to find it a bigger spot? Thanks

Hi Lynn, if it is similar to Toprose (which I think it is) then you just sprinkle  28g (1oz) or 1 handful around the base of the plant and 'tickle' in after the first flush of flowers.  Hope this helps.

Thanks for replies, so to clarify, do I nip the top bits off of all of the plants regardless as to whether they have a bud on? and if so how much should I nip off, because as you say, some of them are getting quite tall. 

Can anybody give name to this plant please

Obelixx, so glad you mentioned that because I recently saw a beautiful sort of 'apple blossom' looking type (white and pink) and was going to ask if anyone knew what it was! If I were to acquire seeds from it would the plants be same the colour ? (sorry if that's a daft question)

Hi, I have planted lots of Cosmos seeds and some are beginning to bud but are very tall and leggy. Do I need to nip off the first few buds to encourage them to bush out?

Red Ants In Lawn

My lawn is covered in red ant patches, this year seems worse than ever. Is it because of all the rain? How do I get rid of them as it is looking messy particularly when trying to mow.

Any ideas folks?

I agree, you just never know how long they are going to last, no matter where you get them from or how much you pay. I had some from Asda that lasted for years and I have bought them from gc's and they have been useless. Could anyone tell me where I can get replacement batteries? as I realise these are not regular batteries. Thanks

Hi Dove, they are all different types,  I just noticed that they were covered in greenfly and have what seem like, particularly small buds this year. Also, I do have occasions when some of my roses don't bud at all.  I don't know if I am killing them with kindness or neglecting to do something
