Help for flooded gardens

Posted: 15/02/2014 at 14:12

Doubt it, in former times there were no sewerage systems in the sticks and it all went back on the garden.

It as the noisiest night so far here as well, nothing else has come close. It's still at it now though maybe not as bad. I was going to a plants meeting this afternoon but when I thought of all the trees looming over the roads on the way I changed my mind.

Green caterpillars

I found a beauty inside one of my Helleborus niger flowers. As it's the first time I've ever got these to re-flower I moved the caterpillar to a H. orientalis flower, I felt I could spare one of those. I should have taken its photo and IDd it but I didn't

I'd pot it up and take it with you.

You can move paeonies but you'll have other things to do if you're moving and it's bound to be in the middle of a drought or freezing when the time comes.

They are said to not like being moved but a discussion on the forum last year showed that many of us had done so successfully. Plants are quite forgiving most of the time. 

I'd pot it up and, as suggested, try and get it out intact. Leave it in the pot til the roots have filled it and it will come out intact.

Thanks Lily. It's wild but nothing compared to the west and south coasts.

I'm a wind wimp

Thanks Dove. It may have calmed down a bit but I've taken the earplugs out now so it sounds louder.

I prefer the more positive approach. 

I'll be growing, if no-one is ready for what I grow, the world won't end. My feeling is that by midsummer at least some people will be happy to receive

Morning all

It's not calmed down much here. The car-port roof is spread around the garden. We'll check everything else when the wind subsides.
