I don't think the lack of yellow would worry the bees.

I take out old and ill-placed stems, right ot the base, when they're dormant. And occasionally in summer when they get so heavy they threaten to break or collapse on something else. They keep throwing up more stems so I assume that's OK

Splish Splash Geranium

Posted: 31/05/2015 at 13:09

If I remember correctly Splish splash is a fancy version of Geranium pratense, one of our native wildflowers. It won't need any form of coddling and over-feeding anything can give you leaves at the expense of flowers. Ypu need to talk to about that compost heap and what happens to plants that don't please you

If you've had it for 5 years without flowers I'd dump it and get something that flowers.

I'm being hard this year, they perform or they're out

Various questions about a new hedgerow of plants

Posted: 31/05/2015 at 08:59

Q1, I can see a laurel but otherwise need more detailed photos

Q2 They look very ill

Q3 I would water them in very well then just make sure they didn't dry out. Too much water can be as bad as too little.

Q4, a good watering, a can full each, when they start to dry out rather than water every day.

Can be reduced over time by next year you'd only need to water if a drought.

Show us all the plants, one at a time. My initial thought is of a poor choice of plants here. A mixed hedge needs to be made of plants that fit well together with much the same growth rate and cutting requirements 

Laurel is a massive plant, useful for a large scale hedge but not a space like that. It will overwhelm other plants in no time.

Do elephant garlic flower produce seeds?

Mel is talking about seed, bits of bulb are not seeds. Seeds are the things at the top of a stem that follow on from flowers.
