Plants for a long planter / Geraniums

Rozanne has a longer flowering period than the other two in my experience.

Bonsai tree

Posted: 08/07/2014 at 20:07

Bonsai is quoite a complex art. Not one I have.  I've seen demos of the top and root pruning required. You need a good book, video of something to find out how to do the necessary pruning to achieve a bonsai. The seeds will just be tree seeds, it's the treatment you give them that makes them into bonsai.

That's a baby tree that could be turned into a bonsai or a forest tree, depending on what happens to it.

Suggestions please

It's never too late

Dianthus deltoides, a packet of mixed colours. Little bits of the small sedums could be poked in, 

I had to look up the spelling of this one so you can have the linkhttp://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/32487/i-Erigeron-karvinskianus-i/Details

Several of the little campanulas will grow like that.

lobelia, it's come up in cracks for years here.

Plants love gaps in paving

They'll be those little larvae that disperse to pupate abseiling down on a thread. 

Why does my garden look raggedy?

Have you got a photo of the plants?

Mine looks a bit raggedy but if I were to cut off the finished flowers, (and do a bit of weeding), it would soon look a lot better

As one who isn't good with cuttings I'd be waiting til the end of the season and doing hardwood cuttings

October Glory Maple

That's right, yes.

But you might get something nice. There was an Acer plantanoides cultivar in the garden when we arrived. Lovely for a couple of weeks with new growth and flowers but dull and dreary after that. Its babies are much more attractive all season

My first ever garden!
