Winter

Posted: 11/10/2014 at 20:01

Echinacea doesn't sound like a winter plant but I don't know the cultivar you mention.

The winter flowering viburnums, farreri, x bodnantense etc have a lovely scent also the winter flowering honeysuckles, Lonicera x purpusii and fragrantissima. And sarcococcas.

Snowdrops, Cyclamen coum and some of the crocuses are away very early in the new year as are some of the pulmonarias

HELLO FORKERS!

Not too late for me Fairy, OH taking me to the station in about 10mins.

I'll pass on your message

Thanks. I hope the tea and toast bring you up to scratch

Moving thick heavy clay to another part of garden?

Posted: 11/10/2014 at 09:41

Is this clay your basic soil or has it been dug out for foundations and is really sub-soil?

If it's the latter I think I'd break it up as best I could and leave it to break down in the frost, then mix with all the other things you mention. Without treading it back to a paste in the process

I wouldn't let it anywhere near a tree fern. Having said that I don't grow tree ferns here, too dry, so what do I know about them?

What do you do with soil from plant pots?

Posted: 10/10/2014 at 22:38

I put it on the garden or on the compost heap

Advice on Fuschia, please.

I'll be quite happy with 2 hard frosts and no snow just like we had last year.

Fuchsias are at their best now aren't they. I have some as lodgers, looking after them  for a friend, lovely.

Advice on Fuschia, please.

Hi Jack

We had a very mild winter last year and 2 of my fuchsias didn't die back. Mostly they do and you can cut them back to the ground in spring
