I always do my big hardy fuchsia late, it just flowers a little later and after all we are around 5 weeks behind this year according to Beechgrove team.

advice for starting a seed swap event

Posted: 11/05/2013 at 23:09

I do a plant swap in work. Planet and seed swap together would be a good idea.

would imagine a seed swap quite straight forward. Would you need to think about some instructions on how people package the seeds? Publicity would be the biggest issue, need to get something in the local papers, posters, contact gardening clubs allotments etc

Good Evening FORKERS

Evening, windy here to GG, lovely blue sky, but quite cool when the wind blows. Didn't spend long in the garden, I'm afraid. Hoping it will be better tomorrow.



Small urban garden......

My garden is also small, I have used a variegated holly at the top of the garden and a tall shrub rose, birds love them too. Forsythia is good up against a fence, I also have local ac which works well. 

Pyou could put some trellis up to give you more height and put some climbers up.



Moving honeysuckle

I have just pulled a few stems up with a bit of root in the past and they have taken. Dove is right, layering good approach too.

I've broken the main stem of my fuchsia standard help!

If you have some stem left it will probably shoot again. Make sure that you put a clean cut where the damage was.
