Foxgloves big enough to flower?

Posted: 06/03/2017 at 18:58

If you mean save them in pots I think you'd have to do a lot of potting on. I had a selection like that this time last year. I planted them all out, lots flowered, a few are going to flower this year

Sloping garden with Lelandia.

laurel is as much of a thug as leylandii and of little use to wildlife. I'd plant a mixed native hedge or a row of different shrubs

I collect mine and sow in pots of gritty compost rather than trays, more depth and less space taken up.

Come winter there are rows of this and that standing outside the GH

Pruning Cotinus

Some people prune these back to stumps every year just at growth starting time. You don't get flowers but great  leaves. I'm think of doing that with mine.

I don't see it as a plant that could be trimmed to a rounded shape and kept like that without loosing its impact. Never seen that done though, maybe someone has.

Sloping/shaded border

I would lift the fabric and not put it back. It destroys soil structure but also, on a slope, whatever you cover it with will run downhill when it rains and when the birds throw it around, 

Geranium macrorrhizum and G. phaeum are good for shade and good at maintaining their form on a slope
