Low maintenance ideas for a large garden

Posted: 14/11/2015 at 20:54

Flower meadows are low maintenance for months but then they need cutting and carting. That's high maintenance.

It's a cyperus but I don't know which one

Berberis Thumbergii

I'd do both. B. thunbergii will grow from seed, all the species will, but the fancy hybrids and cultivars won't come true,

Sow the berries when they're ripe in gritty, well drained compost, leave them outside to experience the winter weather. They'll germinate in spring.

No, I've planted them much later than this and they always do OK

I haven't got bluebells but narcissi and crocus are still waiting

Nice well draining compost with grit mixed in and more on top.

In my experience this one will seed itself without help from us.

When the seeds start dropping they are ripe, collect some and sow them, fresh seed is always best. They don't need heat to germinate, I reckon to leave sown seed outside til after the worst of winter then bring into a cold GH so I can watch them germinate

Just bury the nut, it works for squirrels

I've never taken the shell off any nut I've sown.

Leaving them outside through winter is the really important bit

You're right jandh. I should think your neighbour has got the wrong name.

A photo of the damage might help. Did you take any photos of the leaves?
