I know that plant feeding should be tailing off now... I think. What needs feeding for the next few weeks?

Bump. Someone will know.

Gaillardias ......who grows 'em?

Posted: 31/08/2014 at 08:59

I do. I grew a free pack of seeds three years ago and they have been brilliant. They are a bit floppy so I've had to support them. They have flowered constantly since June and respond well to deadheading. I have not fed them yet but the bed gets mulched in the winter.

I have not got heleniums. I wanted some but they need moist ground and I have desert like conditions - hot, dry & chalky soil.  Hope that all helps!

Collecting seed from Cerinthe

It was when I collected my cerinthe seeds that I realised just how extortionate seeds are to buy! I think I collected about 200 seeds and the original packet only had 12.

Thank you, Nut. I'll try that in a few weeks when the berries look a bit old! It is quite pretty and the bees love it.
