Why do perennials die?

Posted: 07/07/2014 at 13:46

everything that's alive will die.

of old age, drought, too wet, disease, infestation, getting swamped by a larger plant, getting an accidental dose of weed killer. The list is endless

problem grass verge

I haven't tried that one in grass Fleurisa. I'm always putting something more out in the meadow. I don't care what it is as long as it will grow in grass and please me and the insects. I'll scatter some seed out there when it's ripe.

HELLO FORKERS!

Rose not planted correctly

I think I'd mound some soil up round it now and replant in the winter.

but I'm not a rose expert, see what the experts say

Any idea what this is please

Thanks Dave. 

Flower or weed?

you can cut it back any time but I'd move it after it dies back in autumn

Butterflies

Lyn, there's often confusion between nectar plants for adult insects and food plants for larvae. They are not the same thing. A lot of the larvae food plants are 'weeds' and no-one wants them. The larvae are caterpillars and no-one wants them except a few loonies like me

Any old plant with plenty of nectar will do for the adults

 

 

Suggestions please - shrubs for shade!

Hydrangea? One of the species not the seaside boarding house ones.

H. petiolata (anomala or whatever it is now) might go as ground cover if nothing to climb up.

Choisya does well in shade but not sure about the clay
