Hello Forkers - May Edition

Posted: Yesterday at 21:50

Gardened nearly all day in the glorious rain! Thought I'd like a new shape around the lawn, some sort of feature. A summer house would do fine! reshape the ławn, replant, brilliant. OH informed, oh dear! Now we need something the size of the titanic to house a gym! All I want is somwhere to sit, sip wine, chill and snuggle up BUT mainly just a new planting oportunity!

How strong are slalix flamingo?

Posted: Yesterday at 12:38

Ive just moved my Salic flamingo (as a standard so on a graft).


I chopped off a main root thinking it was from an old tree!


Can anyone let me know how tough they are and is it likely to survive? 


Thanks.

Flame weed killer

Just got a small flame weed killer, saw Momnty using one on GW so thought I'd give it a go. I seem to think he mowed the paths first then used the flame on the cracks reaching the roots better. I'm going to try it on full weeds tonight and might try the mow first technique tomorrow. Looks like good fun!

Im going to empty the container they are in so do I just pop them somewhere in the garden?

Hello Forkers - May Edition

Hi all. Just don't know where to start with all the overgrown / merged into one / tapestry effect ! Plants competing for space and attention - just rewards for my greed now coming into play! oops! Must remember that plants need room and not to buy too many. one peony removed. Huechera vastly reduced. Blinkin montbretia eradicated (as far as pos!). But some lovely flowers coming through as well. . Have ordered one of those flame weed killers Monty uses for the paths!!! Can't wait!

taming a philadelphus

Posted: 21/05/2017 at 15:32

Ok, it'll not be long before it's beautiful and in full flower so I ll not do anything until after its finished.


However this year I need to do more than just the usual taking a third off the flowering shoots!


I don't mind it getting a bit taller, it's the untidy bits coveri the other plants I need to tackle. 


Please advise me! Thanks. 


photo hopefully to follow...

needs more than pruning the flowering shoots by a third!
