Help with shaded area

Posted: 22/02/2014 at 19:11

I'll bump this up for you Poppy

I'd cut those rose back very hard and if it's too shady for them have them out.

What sort of soil have you got?

Nut... I was down the allotment for over five hours and got loads done, so much that I am now aching. I had earned the time to watch rugby and I can spend more hours at the allotment tomorrow. I see that we are fairly local to one another...

 

That's OK then, you can have the afternoon off. We are local aren't we. Not sure where south holland starts and finishes but you can't be far away. I'm not far east of Peterborough.

They'll be dead by september. Plant them now (you'll need a torch)

Anything heavy enough to stay put would be too heavy for me to lift up there

Need plant I-D please.

I don't think the first is a laurel, the arrangement of the leaves is wrong and laurel berries fish up black. But I have no better suggestion, it's not something I'm familiar with. Have you got acid soil?

The grassy thing is some sort of cyperus I think

No.10, I'd say Centaurea montana, blue flowers, pretty but a bit of a thug

Last is a pieris

I haven't tried, our sheds are a bit too pitched but sedums are used a lot for this. Do make sure the structure is strong enough though. It's a heavy weight you're looking at and you don't want it on your head

You can always post some more pics in the spring for confirmation
