That's going downhill isn't it?

Very difficult when people give you plants and they turn up their toes.

I don't think it will recover.

Brandling Worms

Welshonion is right.

I think it's nice to consider the worms but it's all part of the big food chain. Everything is a meal for something.

Are there any seeds in petunia piroettes?

Posted: 01/03/2016 at 09:43

Fi hybrids are the seed from the first cross between 2 different parents. They have to be crossed again to produce a further generation unless the plants can be split up or have cuttings taken.

RHS will explain it more clearly that I can

I had a google at the images and it looks too full of petals to have the necessary reproductive parts. It's an F1 hybrid so it won't have grown from seed Pirouette parents.

If you do find seeds they won't produce Pirouette

Not tried it in pots. Pinning stems to the ground and covering with soil  (layering) is very successful. Laurels will do that for themselves if branches rest on the ground.

Always more reliable that cuttings for me because they need no attention.

I planted spuds to come up through a membrane years ago. You could see the movement of all the little rodents running around under there
