tree paeony or herbaceous?


Herbaceous, you might as well, it all dies back in winter.


Tree, no, though if it's huge it might help it get established with less to support. If you do cut a tree paeony back do a few stems to the base rather than shortening them all.

I think I'd get on and do it unless you're either flooded or frozen

Bulb questions

I don't want to cause further problems for anyone but I'm on GeeTee's mailing list and they have half price bulbs. I ordered some yesterday

Where would we be without all the dire predictions.

I have the untidy garden


Maybe I'll save it for the real winter weather this year, if we have one. 


Which reminds me, has 'The Worst Winter for 50 Years' been predicted yet? Or are the press busy with other issues?

Bird feeding has got a bit out of control hasn't it. Not sure it's entirely good for the birds.


I put out feeders so I can watch the diners, not necessarily a good plan

Great to have all those birds.


I haven't done anything about new feeders yet. There are more squirrels now. I don't grudge them a bit of food but I'm going to get some squirrel proof feeders so they don't have all the food

Are these Verbena bonariensis seedlings?

Plenty of time to take cuttings next year, you might need to protect it a bit if we have a harsh winter, depending on where you live. Right up against the house is good if you haven't got a GH. 


The seedlings will probably vary. The fancy varieties rarely seed true, are closer to the original species (tall in this case)


Keep a look out in spring, the seeds might germinate then

That would be my number one bet as well.
