Another 'what's this?' thread...

Maybe it was an off-set or a seedling and the parents died. I prefer  hyacinths when they get to this size, they suit my garden better than those lumpy ones

New hedge advice?

Posted: 18/03/2014 at 08:34

I think havadayoff's advice would be right for a conifer hedge but not for hawthorn/blackthorn

The usual native hedging advice is to reduce by a third or a half on planting and cut hard the following autumn.

Which leaves belong to it?

The ones with the pale line down the middle or the broader one behind the lower flower?

What plants do you use to ensure clematis roots are in the shade?

Posted: 17/03/2014 at 20:48

I don't think it matters if clematis roots get the low winter sun. You'd need to think about colours and flowering time and similar moisture needs. 

May well be true about honeysuckle. they grow in hedges and  trees naturally so their feet will often be in the shade

What the heck is this?

I don't know how big they are but they're crocosmia shape. Sweet potatoes are sort of oval with the stem scars at the ends. The ones that Sainsbury's sell anyway.

Perennial Geraniums

A lot depends on the species/cultivar. 

If you've got leggy bits with leaves on the end you could pin them down to the soil and they'll probably root and make a bigger clump. Whether you want a bigger clump or not is up to you.

If you're good at construction you could build a tiered support for containers, like terracing. That would give you more containers for different plants and hide the tank faster. More effective than relying on one big plant in a pot
