Talkback: Succulent success

Posted: 27/11/2013 at 09:47

Hi Michael, I'd start a new thread for this, it will attract more responses. Can't help you with the aeonium sorry. I only know about hardy plants

I think monardas are pretty hardy Stacey. I had some survive last winter in pots as I hadn't got round to planting them. I've never lost them over winter in the garden. Dry summers are what destroys mine

swot up on the basic GC type plants and let them know you'll be able to advise on size, care etc. But don't intimidate the boss by knowing more than him/her. Mention your ability to help the totally ignorant choose a plant suitable for their garden and have success with it. 

Buddleja 'Buzz' revisited

prune back in spring to just above a couple of buds on each stem, that will double the number of stems. Next time cut each of the new stems back to a couple of buds and it will double again

you may be Del, sticks and leaves are part of nature and the wildlife is there amongst it. Not everything wants to live on a compost heap, lots of it would be buried too deeply to survive or be reached by birds foraging. I just clear it off the grass so it doesn't go yellow.

brompton stocks

I don't know if mine were Brompton, but they were stocks and they didn't make it. The only stock I have ever successfully grown was the annual night scented one. And they weren't that good.

They'll be following the food. It's a good time of year for mole mountains
