pinching out dahlias

Posted: 09/05/2015 at 20:58

My dahlia tubers are sprouting nicely in trays of compost in the greenhouse. Some are getting too tall and leggy for my liking, but I don't want to put them out in the flower beds yet.  If I pinch out the shoots at the tip (like I would with sweet-peas) will that help them bulk up rather than just getting taller?

Newly emerging plants or weeds??

Pongo helps me by softening up my gardening gloves.  Whenever I put them down.  He is obviously very concerned that my hands are protected by lots of lovely dog drool.


 

Inspiration needed - small trees for large half cider barrels

Posted: 18/04/2015 at 16:17

I don't know if it would be happy in a barrel, but my all time favourite tree for year-round interest is an amelanchier.   Stunning white blossom in spring, nice black berries, wonderful autumn colour, and it keeps its shape quite nicely.

Someone more knowledgable than me will be able to say if a barrel would be Ok for it...

RHS Cardiff - what do you think?

Just back from visiting RHS Spring Show at Cardiff.  It was nice, but I thought a bit under-whelming....I didn't see anything that really made me go "wow".  When I've been before there has always been something special, but I couldn't find it this year.

Am I just getting old and hard-to-please, or do others agree?

ID please

Yes, I'd say japanese anemone.  I love them but they do spread!
