What pollinates Molly the Witch

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 11:03

Mine looks rough now Dove, I haven't tried but I should think if I pulled gently all the stems would come free. Don't forget where she is, expect her back next year.

Just went and pulled, most are loose but I tend to leave them there till I've finished other autumn works to remind me of her location.

How hardy are my plants

That's fine, I like Allium triquetum and I haven't got a rockery for them to seed into.

A lot of the alliums are invasive aren't they, A. christophii comes up everywhere.

Thanks Dove. Not sure about the allium, it looks like chives with angular stems but it was £1 and had made 3 plants

Coffee break and question time from me

Paeonia mlokosewitschii flowers prolifically every year but I rarely get a fertile seed.

This year there are none. What am I missing. All the tree paeonies make fertile seed

I've grown Monarda fistulosa from seed, still in pots. Will I need to put it in the cold GH for winter or can I plant out

and Allium senescens, recently bought at the end of season sale. I don't know this one, it's not like the other allium bulbs. Is it hardy?

Thanks all

I've got more species of slug than shown in the ID guide.

Are these the large  orange/tan coloured ones that I don't remember from years ago? 

If so, we have lots

I should think what I saw would have had canes inside the ends, pinning it down

ON a recent allotment tour I saw what look like blue plastic water pipe being used. The sort we used to run a water supply to the GH, about an inch in diameter (ish)
