What is the cutoff time for planting trees in garden?

Posted: 09/05/2015 at 13:57

You've missed it for bare root trees but container grown van be planted if you're willing to give them care through the summer

OK, cut it as Dove suggested, eventually they form a thick mat and don't fall over so much

When you say floppy, do you mean it has fallen over or it's gone limp like it's dying?

Agree, a geum between the buttercups and what might be a hemerocallis.

The silver white green leaves are all buttercups yes. If you can get all those out without destroying anything else you might find more geums. I can see otherplants peeping out. Just waiting for the weeder to come along

I love them too Brenda

What I would resent is being told what to plant in my garden

Plant ID please

I think that is also buttercup, possibly meadow meadow buttercup. I thought at first it might be one of the wild geraniums.  Enlarged, the texture looks more like buttercup

Maybe planting a selection of species least likely to succeed is the way to go. A few chalk grassland plants maybe, or sandy beach types.

I couldn't do it, it would feel like murder

Difficult one. Plants in their native habitat to do very well. The only natives that don't do well here are the ones that don't belong in dry East Anglia. No chance of ragged robin becoming invasive in my garden
