Saffron crocus

Posted: 11/08/2016 at 18:19

I lived in Saffron Walden for some years. I couldn't grow it. I've tried several times, then and now. I had 3 flowers once and never seen again. 

Any Idea what this plant is?

it won't get tall but roots down as it moves sideways. Does very well spreading over rock or paving. Just pull up and cut off anything that's exceeded its space any time.

Yes, very true. 

Please help me figure out what's happening.

yes we would let mother nature heal an open wound.

Your opinion is your opinion Verdun and you are entitled to that.

But opinion is not fact and CraighB needs to hear other opinions in order to make an informed choice.

My opinion is that holes in delphinium leaves in August is no big deal compared to the death of all the beneficial insects that would have sorted it out for you over the coming years.

Ideas for a native mixed hedge

yes, I forgot that one, and Viburnum lantana, wayfaring tree. If you can leave it as a fairly loose hedge the berrying and nutting will be better

Please help me figure out what's happening.

you'll never achieve a natural balance of pest and predator if you go the chemical route.
