EASTER DAY FLOWER COUNT

Posted: 05/04/2015 at 12:05

Bigger numbers than I can deal with. It's all happening out there now

Outside container plants, beginner help required

You could put short term plants, summer bedding, bulbs etc in for a couple of years and buy small plants of the big ones you like and grow them on until big enough for the big containers. You wouldn't have to grow it indoors, hardy plants don't need to be indoors and it would have to be hardy if you're leaving the large containers out all year.

Does that make sense? I don't feel I've put that very clearly

Best Yew for topiary?

Posted: 05/04/2015 at 10:09

Yew is Taxus baccata. A lot of the cultivars, bred for shape and gold edges to the new leaves etc, would be wasted on topiary.

Just look for yew, or Taxus baccata

will my perennials flower this year

I have had catmint in flower late in the first season from seed but I think you're looking at next year really. So look after them. I'd grow them on in pots before you plant them out or they'll be struggling. The shrubs flowering will depend on how big they are now. The bulbs should flower this year if they're bulbs you've just bought for summer flowers.

It may sulk if you move it but you can try, take it with as much of a root ball as you can.

Those yellow flowers look like Kerria 

The bush with lots of yellow flowers, forsythia.

You can cut down whole stems of them both after flowering.

Totally agree with Verdun, Dead bush cut back gives you a dead stump

Jasmin - officinale or trachelspermum??

Posted: 03/04/2015 at 12:54

I've killed both of those chicky but the jasmine lasted longer
