Protecting Buxus from too much sun

Posted: 26/04/2016 at 17:35

Maybe the plants are trying to tell you something.

Help with ideas

Not A.

On the plan, the garden looks quit long and thin, in which case, partially dividing it, as in B, with some large plants where the circles come together, might be good.

I would keep the path, but make it "proper", not stepping stones.

What fun you are going to have.

Is there any better foliage ?

Meant to say, there is a beautiful small Rheum, called Ace of Hearts, I think, which would be fantastic. I am thinking of getting one.

You could easily make one Verdun.

As you know, it gives a lot of scope for different plants.

You know you need one !

Hi Lilly P, sorry to hear your news.

Sadly all I know about the disease, is what I have read, since you mentioned it last night, so do not feel I could talk sensibly about it.

Morning all.

Bitterly cold here.

My hospital OP. appointment today is cancelled, but I am actually "pleased".

Love to Dove and WW.

Verdun, I grow them both in my bog garden, but as you say, if Astilbes will grow, so should Rodgersias.

I grow Astilbes close to a Rodgersia, whose leaves are also emerging a beautiful bronze colour.

Could be worse. I could be spending it on wild women.

When I initially pot on Cosmos seedlings, I do bury them an inch or so deeper. It stops them becoming so leggy.
