Killing a yukka

nothing survives if you keep removing the leaves but you need to do it as soon as more leaf appears, not let them grow for a few months then chop them off.

Planting plans and keeping track of your plant names

Posted: 16/10/2016 at 13:50

I've got a list, but there are gaps in it. Some of the plants that are on it died or were dumped years ago.

Most plant names are in my head, but there are gaps there too, more gaps than there used to be. 

No plan, too complicated for me

Mirabilis jalapa

They're not over hardy, I had a couple come through last winter but usually I grow them from seed each year, very quick to flower from seed and reliable germinators 

I think it's some sort of geranium

Thanks Sue, that one looks like a sanguineum cultivar.

I think I've dug it out of the files

Seeds ex Geranium 'Silver Shadow' a cross between G. robustum and G. incanum.  (probably from the HPS seed list).  I think my plant is closer to robustum than to incana.

I feel better now

Thanks for all suggestions

I think we'll be having a wet day tomorrow, no gardening, so I'll delve into the records

no, it's more like a mini shrub Muddle-Up

growing well in very dry soil in mostly sun, having a good year leafwise, less so with the flowers. I grew it from seed a very long time ago

not that I've noticed DimWit. Certainly nothing like G. macrorrhizum

I have a list of the plants in the garden but it's half in a folder and half in a computer and all a bit complicated.

It's a bit woody, has bright pink flowers. I wasn't expecting it to be hardy but it's been here for years and I've forgotten the name

It's only had 2 flowers this year  but the leaves are nice.

With luck I'll recognise the name if someone suggests it

Cornus sanguinea 'Midwinter fire'

I swing between loving the colours and threatening them with the big shredder. 
This one just earned a stay of execution. The other is on death row
