Geum - taking cuttings

Hi Berghill

Thanks for the advice. Luckily that bit of the flower bed is weed free at the moment as I dug it over after removing as old hebe shrub.

Geum - taking cuttings

Posted: 03/09/2014 at 16:10

Hello

Is it okay to put cuttings straight into a flower bed rather than pot up in fresh compost?

The reason I ask is that yesterday I cut back this Geum Lional Cox as it was spilling over onto the patio. Then I decided to plant up the pieces I has cut off as they had some roots but I had run out of compost so I planted a few in a flower bed and the others round the edge of a pot with a small patio rose. I did water them afterwards.

Monarda Mohawk - care advice

Posted: 02/09/2014 at 12:24

Hello

Can the Monarda Mohawk be grown in the shade?

Currently I have it in a pot on the patio which is in full sun. This year I took it out of the pot so that I could remove all the weeds from around its roots. Then I split it into seperate plants and put the main plant back in the original pot with fresh compost. Its still not very happy and hasn't flowered this year.

Shall I plant it up in the flower bed which is in the shade of a tree and hope it bucks up?

Any advice appreciated.

Thank you

Thanks for your reply and the photo. I hope mine improves and gets as big as yours. Fingers crossed.

Hello

Thanks for all the advice.

Yes it is a dark leaved variety. It went in a pot when I bought it as there wasn't any room in the garden and stayed there ever since. I have removed some compost and replaced it with fresh.

I wasn't sure if it would do okay in the shade but I will take Lyn's advice and plant it out under my plum tree. Where is it best to plant it - front or back of the border?

Hello

I took all your advice and dug up some of the veronica and planted it in a trough using compost from my compost bin (all I had left). It's doing really well in just three weeks.

So thanks again for the advice.

I have had this Jacob's Ladder (Polemonium) for a few years but have lost the plant label. Does anyone know what variety is it?

It's hadn't done very well this year so some advice on improving its condition would be appreciated.

Thanks

Advice for planting under a purple leafed plum tree

Posted: 30/08/2014 at 13:56

Thanks Kef, I think I made my post too long.

What I really want to know is if the plants I listed will do okay in the shade of a tree and flower as well.

Plus any ideas for any other plants to plant amongst them particularly to hide the fence.

What is this plant?

Thanks for the replies.

I was thinking it could be a violet only the leaves were a lot larger then the ones that have seeded themselves in my pots.

Hello

Does anyone know what this plant is? Its been in my garden for about five years and self-seeded. I have just left it there as it filled up a space.
