Which Currant Bushes Would You Recommend

Posted: 27/02/2015 at 23:14

I got Red - White  and Black currants, I never really pick them just nibble at a few when I am weeding around them  but for the black one . I dont know what variety's they are my dad bought them years ago but the Red and white crop heavy every year without hardly any pruning.

As pansyface said they take a lot of room up, I been moving them today/yesterday to make space for a new planting area. To be honest I wouldn't of been bothered if they found their way into the wood chipper cause they take so much room up and I dont pick them but the bird have a good do out of them

According to one of the book I been scanning through today Ben lomond is popular could try Ben Nevis for colder areas. White versailles for white currants popular as well. Laxton no1 for red currants as well as jonkheer van tets

My white currant and red currant grow / look nearly exactly the same but for the currants.

I leave the fuchsia in the house or GH, same for the osteospermums, helichrysums i not sure depend on the variety. depends on where you are in the country as well. 

I just leave them in the house if you got space to be honest, no casualty's then

No I didn't buy both, I was unsure whether to subscribe or not. It puts me off subscribing with extra pack of seeds not being on subscription edition.

I know edd, but in the magazine it say you only get one pack of seeds and subscribers only get one pack for some reason. Only certain store sell the edition  with two packs on as well.

this is the edition subscribers would get, and in some stores as well,  same price as the two pack edition.

Designing planting schemes

Posted: 23/02/2015 at 17:55

Hi roseradish I am not sure what your question is but if you put a picture of your garden now you will get a lot more suggestions. Also if you name some of your plant you want people can give you advise where best to plant.

most people plant taller plants at the back of the border getting smaller towards the front of the border. scented plant near path way etc. 

As people have already told you, most if not all gardeners do a bit of trail and error often changing their mind,  I do often.
