I think that's why they post on Friday nights.There's no-one to report to. But yes, it will still be there really til Monday. 

Shall I hack my Verbena bonariensis?

Posted: 16/11/2013 at 13:16

I have some soil that's very lacking in substance Obelixx, dry, but not sandy, like dust. Some plants go well there so I haven't tried to improve it. In one gale a few years ago I thought a Bupleurum fruticosum had been broken off but it had been blown out of the ground after at least 5 years growing there.

The verbena haven't broken, they're half out of the gound, as was a 4 year old buddleia. I've cut that back a lot and pushed the rest back upright. All will be well.

Mine all went near horizontal in the last gale. Some will have seeded though and some might come through. I never end up without any. There'll always be some in the gravel on the drive

Andy, that sounds a bit dramatic. I hope it turns out to be something easily dealt with.  

That's Monty done till March!

there are lots of old gardening programmes on You Tube. Some better quality than others.

Lovely paeony Anthony, can't name it though, sorry.

the tops will die off so you might as well. They're not plants to stand tall though the winter and look good in the frost, or great suppliers of winter bird food

I haven't done mine yet but I haven't done much else either.

That's OK Anthony. I only have Molly the Witch but I expect the others do the same. She's always visble, the shoots for next year start as the others die back. Very hardy plants

Thanks Bob, I'll get out there and get my hedge done as soon as the leaves are off.

Archie, I think the text changes could be related to blood alcohol levels. It all looks a bit odd at times

Hi Pauline. Open the thread so you can read it. Then hover over the author, a dark square appears and, in  that square, the word ignore. Click on there and the post disappears.
