Glad you got there eventually Norma. Some of these quick and easy tasks take forever
I'll give that a try H-C. Thanks
Let them mature and you'll get some of these
it will all turn brown and die, no further use for it. Cut it all off
I might try some hardwood when the leaves drop. It's worth a try.
they'll die back soon for the winter. You can cut off the dead leaves and more will grow in spring.
They are relatively moisture loving compared to bearded iris, are they too dry/
Looks more like italicum in that photo H-C
Not much difference Catherine. You'd have a hard job eliminating them. If you let them mature you get some lovely red berries in late summer, Don't eat them but the voles do
I might have a go. Cuttings are my weak spot (one of them anyway)
Do yoy remember those 'dwarf' conifers being felled in Adrian Bloom's garden at Bressingham Dove?
