I know they dont like to be moved but the heleniums are out competing it. its not so big at the moment. I havent really got anywhere else to put the heleniums, the slugs keep demolishing delephimiums in one area, that why I am think of planting the baptisa there. I will reassess before i take the plunge

I thought it was just me  I get really pushy. I wait all year for the plants to do their thing, then suddenly I want it to get over and done so I can start messing around again, always thinking for next year.

I do keep myself restrained I been wanting to move a baptisa all summer, as soon as it starting going dormant I be moving it to its new home. I've got loads of plans of moving this and that everywhere and of course getting new plants . Last year wootens did a October sale so think of getting just one or two plants  or 10 .

I am amazed you mange to see the bees VS, it was covered in a swarm of bees the butterflys / bumble bees were going equally mad for eupatorium .  Its hard to believe I bought the helianthus last year as a plug plant now its huge.

Unfortunately the blue skies weren't today FG

That's the same reason I am think of trying giganteum. I got mount everest and gladitor from lidl last year and i got a few more this year very cheap £1.69 for 2 bulbs or £3 for 4 bulbs  v good bulbs as well. Giganteum are quite expensive where did you get your from Andy?

New hedge height advice?

Posted: 19/09/2016 at 20:08

I wouldnt use cherry laurel for a hedge that size, you wouldnt get flowers or berrys because it would never get chance with routine pruning to keep it that size. 

Viburnium tinus would make a lovely hedge winter flowering and berrys. photinia little robin would also be a good candidate.
