Hebe/caryopteris

Posted: 20/08/2016 at 10:28

Hi Dave


caryopteris are late flowering, mine aren't out yet


catmint stems can be cut right back any time


Lavender flower stems can be cut but don't go back in into old wood, stay in the green.


How old are the hebes?

is my plum tree dying?

I should think the fungal stuff has moved into dead/dying branches. If you pruned off all the branches that are like that, would there be anything left? I don't think there's any hope for a branch as in the last photo.


Sorry

Sow Hardy Annuals

Posted: 19/08/2016 at 23:23

our poppies (ie Papaver rhoeas, Field Poppy) are best sown now, outside, where you want it to grow and not transplanted.


Californian poppies (Escscholzias) won't survive any but the mildest winters here. None of them like being transplanted. It can be done but it sets them back.


Love in a mist self sows here and over winters well. Bigger plants than those that germinate in spring.


Hardy annuals aren't plants for indoors and GHs

I saw some Hart's Tongue on a wall inside a lean-to GH yesterday. The owner had no idea how they found enough moisture up there.

I have one rescued from my son's chimney when it was rebuilt, it grew in nothing there. After moving from the ground where I planted it to the surface of a lump of concrete it's very happy.


I sowed your Navelwort today, It didn't rain as much as I had hoped but eventually there'll be enough to get it going

You can rely on Alan Clark's ID of 1. GD


2 is Alchemilla mollis, no doubt re that.


That twist of the petals on the last confirms Trachylospermum jasminoides rather than stephanotis


Just leaves 4 which I think is Crinum powellii album, the leaves look like that, not a lily.
