Waterlogged plant

Posted: 24/05/2013 at 14:35

Is there a gutter overflowing into it or a soakaway? I'd find out why before you plant anything else there. Overflowing gutter, soakaway, lowest point in some badly draining area. If you can't cure it try some of those coloured stemmed dogwoods. They'll be able to take it.

I agree with auntie betty, you've done all you can. It happened to me once with some hollies. My uncle gave them to me and I didn't realise there were no drainage holes in the pots. Far too late to save them by the time I noticed.

I thought a trug was one of those shallow baskets for collecting flowers and veg.

Looks interesting Verdun. Is it hardy? (out here in the real world not that other universe you've got down there ). I like something a bit different

I grew a buddleia species this year. When something germinated II thought 'funny looking buddleia'. Fortunately hadn't pricked out and disturbed the buddelia which came through later. All going well, haven't done an ID on the interlopers but look a bit like a solidago. We shall see. 

Seed wasn't from a commercial company.

Herbs would be great. plenty of marjoram and thyme to attract the insects. You can teach the kids about the insects as well.

Native plants have lots of history and stories attached to them. 

Tree advice

All that is true,and definitely forget the acer.

In what's left of the light I'm looking out at Rosa glauca. The leaves are blue/grey with a hint of red round the edges, more if the sun ever comes out. Gives an overall reddish colour to the bush. Has small pink flowers and hips later. Puts up with anything, doesn't get diseases, can be cut to fit. Never sulks.
