Frost damaged oleander?

Posted: 17/05/2012 at 14:47


I have a Nerium oleander in a pot on my decking, it gets full sun for most of the day and last year it seemed very happy there. However, I've noticed it's not looking very healthy now - the leaves are sort of dull and patchy it and doesn't look like it's producing much in the way of flower buds.

After a bit of research I think it's probably frost damage as I left it out all winter - I live in Devon and it was fairly mild but we did have the odd few nights under zero s maybe I should of brought in indoors?.

Could anyone tell me how I can bring it back to health and flowering well again next year? Do they need much water, especially since it's potted? I'll try and remember to bring it inside this winter for a start!

Saxifrage brown in middle?

Posted: 02/04/2012 at 15:43

Hi, this is my first post, I'm a gardening novice - very keen but lacking in knowledge! Thought these forums would be a big help...

A couple of years ago I planted a mossy saxifrage (Peter Pan), it's now spread to a clump about 12 by 6 inches. It looked really pretty last year but this year it looks like its gone brown and bare in the middle but the edges of the clump looks healthy. Can anyone tell me what's happened and what I need to do to get it looking good again?
