Pruning persicaria

I might wait a bit and see where the new growth comes then cut it back to some good shoots.

Take care where you put the mouse traps

They like to access the roof space of our wood framed house and garage/shed, you can hear them at night, especially in autumn.  The chew things and make nests out of our stuff

They get zapped. The garden they're welcome to.

I don't know about dahlias, sorry.

If nobody answers start another thread re dahlias, then you'll get the dahlia growers.

We had a blackbird caught in a mousetrap yesterday. Not one of ours, they're all inside sheds and are all still there.

OH managed to net it when it got caught up in a bush. He got the trap off but I fear it won't survive, there was blood on the trap. 

Just be careful where you put these things

Sparrows were always blamed for this years ago. Have you got sparrows.

I have no sparrows are my primroses are intact. I know that proves nothing

Dicentra spectabilis - is yours up yet?

Mine look like Rhod's, maybe a little bigger, hard to tell amongst the weeds

I find them a lot easier than remembering which of the common names belongs to which plant. 

I prefer 'binomial system'. Two names, genus and species, variety or cultivar added when  appropriate. Can't go wrong and no need to justify all those words that aren't Latin.

I don't think there can be one JB8, I've heard many 'experts' talking about plants using some very different pronunciations. 

I have heard the word Ribes as rybes, (one syllable), ribees, reebs and reebees.  

 

Foxglove cuttings - anyone tried it?

They'll be OK primrose. Quite big really. They'll grow on quicker in new compost
