Red robin help needed!

Posted: 07/03/2015 at 09:41

I'm with Dave on that one. I use to be reluctant to cut back but have proved to myself that it's the way to go.

The turning point was some years ago when I had 2 laurels limping along. The electricity wires people dropped a tree branch on one and snapped it. I cut it right back and within a year it was bigger than the one I'd left alone 

Clumps of crocus with no flowers

They look like crocus to me as well, that lighter line down the middle is a bit of a giveaway and grape hyacinths tend to be floppier looking than that.

Bare roots perennials - can I put them straight in the border?

Those dry bits in boxes?  I'd rehydrate and pot up til they start growing.

Re Topbird's suggestion.

Pots of lavender could be removed for weedkilling. It would be harder to spray weeds without harming the annuals

A ground covering layer can be mown for a start, It makes it easier to find the separate stems to pull. It's one of the easier plants to remove (compared to bindweed, ground elder and worse)

I would cut lower than that. Those two stem up against each other will be where the rot sets in. Maybe has set in.

If Verdun is right about 2 plants you may be able to separate them and remove the dead one completely

What is this I know it's germinating? :)

Outside, it's a hardy native tree.

See if you can find some more. You need more than one to get nuts. Not that you'll get nuts, the squirrels will be quicker than you 

Anyone done any gardening today?

I can hear a lawn mower

Not mine.

I have stuffed lots of dried last year growth through the shredder. Very dry and dusty, still coughing.

Plant it now daisy or it will die.

I'd put it in a pot til it's a bit bigger
