question about lobelia (the tall variety) and rudbeckia

Posted: 11/04/2013 at 20:24
Last year I planted two tall lobelia (one pink and one red) and also a rudbeckia. I'll admit I haven't had either of these before and didnt know what to do at the end of the season other than harvest some seeds (which I have sown now in plug trays) At the end of the season I just cut them all down to the ground. Will they come back or are they all annuals? Thanks in advance x

Winter flowering violas

Posted: 19/03/2013 at 09:32
I grow violas every year, and if left they will still produce the odd flower after season. I never deadhead mine, some of the seed pods burst and new plants spring up here and there but I mostly collect the seeds, dry them and replant them when its the right time of year. I just did all my summer violas yesterday. I can keep the same plants going this way year upon year, and I can single out the odd hybrid/cross pollenation in the process.

They really are one of the most hardy plants ive ever grown.

Also whilst you're all here.....
I have a border between ours and our neighbours property. She has given me the go ahead to plant the border up but it floods very easily.

There are some daffs coming up, and we had a viola hybrid border last summer, but id like something permenant, something hedge forming that can withstand very wet conditions. Low growing preferable (no higher than 2ft but I can prune etc)

Thank you x
