Mine flower when they feel like it but a second flush could be a bit late to produce hips (especially this year, summer will be over before it starts). I don't deadhead mine.

Low growing flowers for lawn alternative

I looked at the photos on your previous posting


http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/wildlife-gardening/grass-free-lawn/800916.html


There are some lovely effects but they bring to mind the 'show' or makeover garden. Lovely now but what happens later?


What comes after is maintenance ie weeding. I don't think you're looking at a labour saving plan here.


My advise would be to try it. Nothing to lose, you'll see what works and what doesn't.


 


A few points. mat forming thyme lets the weeds through and goes brown if it's over-shadowed for long. Scarlet pimperenel has no mat forming ability, it's a plant of field edges and bare places, not part of a lawn effect. 


Good luck

Too many plants

I'd like mine to be more like that but the soil is poor and the competition fierce

What is this plant?

Posted: 28/06/2016 at 21:40

not Pittosporum, Persicaria.


I think those little round flowers are Persicaria capitata.

Are you sure it's this one? It's not a climber.


I hack bits of this one when I feel like it.


I like to coppice anything in late winter/early spring, just as growth starts. But lots of things are done earlier or later because it won't all fit in at the right time. Most plants and pretty forgiving, unless they cost more than about £12, then they snuff it very willingly.
