My patio pear tree is now in its second year. It looks really healthy with lots of new growth but NO flowers and therefore there will be NO fruit again. Should I cut the new growth back and by how much? My patio plum tree bought at the same time has flowered this year and some of the flowers have set to produce fruit.
Hostas, Solomon Seal, Lily of the Valley some types of Iris - the one with the small flower NOT bearded Iris which loves the sun. Good Luck.
My Lychnis plant was so beautiful last year. At the moment it looks as if it has rotted but on closer inspection it is quite dry looking with a small amount of new growth. Should I leave the new growth to just come through the old foliage or should I cut it back ?
I live in Scotland and need to re seed a bald patch on the lawn. What is the best time to do this ?
Thank you Will cut back after flowering to enable me to enjoy my garden seat OR move the seat !!
Thank you. It is beautiful when in flower but it is now hanging over the garden seat. Once it has flowered I will cut it back.
I have a vigorously growing Clematis which flowers April/May. When should I cut this back and how far ?
I hope so it was fantastic last year !! Should I just leave it or do you recommend I cut it back to its base?
Thank you - it just looks so sad !! It had been beautiful last year and it is the Scottish Flame Flower.
I bought this plant last year and it was fabulous growing all ove a conifer. While I see lots of shoots on other plants the stem look completely dead. Should I have cut it down to its base ?
