Could someone please explain the diference between a Tree Peony and a Peony please? Also, is it possible to take cuttings? In the grounds where I work there is the most beautiful one I have ever seen, the flowers at the moment are HUGE and I would love to own one !

I am having a bit of a 'blue theme' at the moment and bought myself a very pretty Veronica Prostrata Nesta. I had never seen or heard of this before so when I got home and looked it up I was a bit worried to find that it belonged to the Speedwell family. Having spent the last few years trying to get Speedwell out of my lawn and borders   I was wondering, if this 'Nesta' was going to seed everywhere also?

Thanks for link, I thought they looked useless, had an image of just walking straight out of them whilst they stayed in the soil  I have considered hiring an aerater that takes the 'plugs' out as I believe my lawn prob's to be due to compaction.

Has any one tried these please? I know they look a bit strange but do they actually work? I know the 'forking' method is better but it is such a huge job.

Hi, Has anyone any suggestions for a decent incinerator please?  I have had the usual ones that look like a dustbin with a funnel on the lid and although I dont do an awful lot of burning, (2 or 3 times a year) they don't seem to last very long and start falling to pieces!  I was wondering if the oil barrels were any good.I would be very interested to know what other people recommend. Thanks

Dianthus Pink Kisses

I have just purchased Dianthus Pink Kisses and would appreciate some help and advice on how to care for it, as it didn't have instructions when I bought it and was the only one left (although the name was on a sticker on the pot). I have tried to look on the internet but could not find much information and also, my one does not quite look the same. The pictured ones seem to be very 'pink' with small flowers, whereas mine is almost white with a maroon centre and the flowers are approx 2 inches across! It has the most amazing scent, which is what attracted me to it. I was planning to put it in a container on the patio. It is currently in a 6 inch pot so I would like to know... what size container to use; how big it might get; what to feed with and lastly, is it easy to take cuttinggs from Dianthus?  Thanks

Thanks everyone, I usually prefer to read from the beginning of the thread but occasionally I have seen long threads that I have read previously and just want to get to the 'current bit'.

Sorry if this is a daft question , but when I want to view a thread which has been running for some time and has lots of pages, is there a way to view the latest additions to the thread without trawling through all of the old ones?

Thanks Pansyface, if these are available in tester pots they will be great.
