Bay plant

very nice. I'd better think about decking the halls, but not much, just a token.

C.armandii leaves going brown!!

it is an evergreen, you're right.

It doesn't look very lively in the green bits. If it were mine I'd cut it well back and speak to it nicely. But that's just based on my approach, others may have better suggestions.

I like the sound of a nasturtium jungle.

I have grown onions, they were quite good 

Agree re swaps. Done a lot of swaps through this forum over the years, including some bay. Can't remember who had the bays so can't check re success. They were suckers with a bit of proper root.

Micanthus Gold Bar

when they get going miscanthus are very fine in winter. Lovely browns and russets. Better than evergreens imo as you get the seasonal changes. If the fog ever clears I'll take a couple of photos.

I agree with Tetley re not splitting it up yet. Mine never get split, I'd like to but they're so tough I can't do it

I've never managed to upload anything but very small pics, but this little Samsung is quite elderly (like its owner). Never tried from the phone.

reduce the size of the photo. I reduce mine to 30%, (phone or camera pics)

A home-made fungicide

Posted: 16/12/2016 at 13:51

If you want to germinate the seeds aym, read punkdoc's last sentence, that says it all.

Where do they grow naturally?

What time of year do they set seed and what is the temperature when they do?

what is the soil like where they come from?

How much rainfall is there and when?

That's what's important, not fungicide and chamomile and cinnamon or anything else from the spice rack

Has anybody sown Pulsatilla vulgaris seeds successfully?

Posted: 16/12/2016 at 10:03

Yes, I'd love to have the Barnack soil Dove. It's stodgy stuff over gravel over clay here. Plus the years of dumping of anything and everything.

this thread started in June. Must have got lost somewhere.

Those flamingos aren't very tough, they can't deal with dry or hot sun. Not enough chlorophyll for health. Those in pots suffer most
