BARNSDALE GARDEN TRIP.

Posted: 14/06/2014 at 10:40

I have plants that are surplus to requirements that could be brought to Barnsdale

1 Ribes odoratum, yellow flowers, scented. well rooted cutting from last summer

2 pots Begonia evasiana, last year from the little bulbils. Very hardy plant for dry shade eg under trees.

 a 2 year old from seed (maybe 3) Paeony, Molly the Witch

3 pulsatilla vulgaris from seed last year mainly standard purple but occasional white 

1 Lathyus sylvestris, climbing pink sweetpea type flower that grows well in shade

any takers?

What is eating my redcurrants?

Pigeons and blackbirds would be on my list of suspects. Mine are busy on the cherries which are nowhere near ripe.

Dove, you need to check your emails

where are you susie?

It is sad susie. I'm sure there are other factors that affect bird numbers but the use of chemicals is one that we could sort out if the will was there.

You're lucky rosemummy. I haven't seen one yet. The sound of snail bashing was constant here a few years ago. It may not all be down to chemicals but the neighbouring farmer sprays something, somewhere most days

More help needed please . . . .

Phormium grows from seed Chrissie but it's a long time before it's like Pandas photo.The cultivars won't come true but everything comes from seed except sterile hybrids

I had an enormous Phormium tenax, one of the 2 very cold winters was too much for it and it died in a very rotten smelly way. I may start another one if I can think of somewhere to put it

What is this?

Is Pentas hardy? Mich's pic looks like something well established in the garden.

I doesn't look like the right leaves to me though

Help please . . . .

Hidcote, yes, that's a patulum I think. I've manage to kill 2 of those over the years and I thought they were supposed to be easy going

More help needed please . . . .

I'd have said phormium but I don't know the Hesperaloe

astrantia major

Astrantias are pretty tough and cope with whatever weather they get. If it's not performing I'd scrap it
