Phlox 21st Century Blue - should they be pinched out?

Posted: 02/05/2016 at 11:49

I've not grown these before either but I do tend to pinch out most bedding plants. If they are looking leggy I would definitely pinch.

I do squash the odd one and slug eggs but I mostly chuck them in the brown bin ( garden recycle bin ), I dont know if they can get out or not  

I been uses wool pellets around my most vulnerable plants which do work very well. I trying organic slugs plants also this year. Normal slug pellets used in GH. I not a fan of salt either, I made beer traps before as well but a lot of messing around.

david10 how are your Geums doing? I saw a picture from last year of yours which had a geum flame of passion on show.  I like it some much I got myself one a few weeks ago  can I asked what conditions you grow your in ? And how fast it clumping up? I bought Tai Mai at the same time, hoping to plant that with allium christophii and salvia nemorosa caradonna.


How has this weather affect your planting this year?

Keeps snowing 4inch yesterday few inch today  minus temperatures at night, normally have the GH packed full of bedding plants / tender perennials but most are still in house. My seedling are not as advanced as last years. Lots of 3 or 2 litre perennials outside ready to be planted out but snow on ground now and its getting more soggy as it melts. Got a plant order due today ( ordered last week ) was planting up a whole bed this weekend with monarda - veronicastrum - helenium etc but its very unlikely as this rate  

Lovely weather for December - Sorry late April
