What's the best thing to do with daffodils when the flower has died

Posted: 31/03/2014 at 22:35

I'd never get round to it Verdun

I've still got about a dozen hellebores to de-leaf

Are my monardas dead?

Posted: 31/03/2014 at 22:33

They might. I have 2 varieties. One is about 4 inches tall, the other is barely showing

Moved into new house and unsure of plants

Elder might be regarded as a weed

No it's not poisonous, you make wine with the flowers or the berries

I'd have it out, it's a big thing for up against a house.

Cotoneaster isn't one of the notable poisonous plants but take the berries off if you're worried. It's not very big and by the time it is you will have taught the kids not to eat plants without asking you first.

I've never dead-headed a bulb yet, mine have to be a bit more self reliant than that

I hope you're there Jack, 1. could be Cotoneaster lacteus, I thought it wasn't but on looking at the babies I think it might be.

Babies, below

leaves of the mature bush, got it sideways, sorry, they hang down

the bush below is about 18 years old, 10-12 foot high and would be clothed to the ground and much wider. I had to do a major cutting job or we wouldn't have been able to get by
