Bluebells as a table centrepiece

Posted: 08/11/2014 at 09:42

Hi Sandy, welcome

I'm not sure it will work either. It's a bit late, I associate bluebells with the early May BH.

also, whenever I see them for sale in pots they always look droopy - though this may be down to lack of care by the growers.

Do you grow Aconitum's?

liven up my laurel hedge

How about a crab apple or a hawthorn

More weeds I think??

Hi DD. I had some Nicotiana affinis over-winter last year but it was a really easy winter here. I'd rescue it and protect it over winter.

However, I find seeds sown in early spring flower before those that have over-wintered. I only know  about N. affinis and sylvestris. I haven't tried others.

re the first one; I don't grow them (not for long anyway) but I think echinacea leaves might be that shape as well

I'd remove some laurel and plant something more interesting.

The laurel hedge will never be as lovely again if you let a climber loose on it.

The top one looks like a rudbeckia, Goldsturm or similar.

I need to feel the 2nd one shape suggests oenothera or nicotiana

too much of a credibility gap for me, unless the gardener had a specific sensitivity.

I dunno Welsh, we found one here that was 15 foot tall and at least as wide.  The base of the trunk was 2 foot in diameter.

Beyond the tools and ability of many gardeners.

Plants for Winter interest

Sarcococca is an excellent shrub for shade and no trouble at all. Lovely scent and looks OK all year

The Lonicera is not a shapely shrub but again a lovely scent.  It might not like the dried out clay in summer and doesn't offer anything in that season

I don't grow skimmias, I have done but I don't like the way the leaves often look pale and sick.
