Autumn flowering tall yellow daisies

Posted: 21/03/2016 at 22:39

A lot of the late ones are perennial helianthus.

If you don't want rampant try Lucid's rudbeckia

messy mulch

Posted: 21/03/2016 at 22:37

Some small plants can't get through a thick mulch and some don't like to be under any at all, especially those that have leaves though winter or those that like a sunny dry situation. I generally mulch round plants but the birds soon change that.

What's under there? some plants will be quite happy.

Birch trees

Hi Rubi

I can't see your pic

3 foot might be a bit close but I have seen 3 planted together, so they look like one multi-stemmed tree, that is very effective.

They grow quite quickly and never look as good once you've cut them back

Rain will be fine, it's too dry here and mine aren't brilliant.

Large trees are more difficult to establish than small ones and are more likely to fail.

In theory a container grown tree can be planted anytime.

How far away is the nearest property? I don't think birch is a big offender re roots, not like willow and poplar. 

They do seed around, most native trees (and some non-natives) do.

There are some lovely birches with very white trunks but much more expensive

I can't see your pic

I think that's emptied my store of birch knowledge

Which one is it Laura?

Campanula Pritchards variety how tall ?

Posted: 21/03/2016 at 20:51

I think woottens is closer. Mine didn't get quite that tall but they were in poor soil.

Hi Paddy

How long have they been where they are now?
