large teak planter

Posted: 17/11/2014 at 14:43

I am thinking of buying 2 of the above to put either side of my teak bench. Can anyone recommend where to look and does anyone know how serviceable these will be long term? Also what would you plant in them to provide a bit of height?

Thanks

mildew on flowers

Posted: 13/07/2014 at 08:25

I dont know what I have done wrong this year but I have mildew on my scabious,erysimum and stocks which I grew from seed. My sweet williams had 

fungal leaf spot and 2 out of 5 of my black currant bushes are covered in powdery mildew.

Thanks for your replies. Just wondered if I could propogate them as a way of starting again. If so how do you take cuttings and how long before I have my new miniature bushes back?

Thanks everyone for those suggestions. The last one could be oregano as it does smell herby. Number three is not a foxglove but could be a penstamon as the leaves seem the same. Still not sure about number four. All I know is that I seem to have a lot of these!

Lincolnshire! I planted 2 packets of seeds, one was mixed wild flowers and the other mixed perenials. I lost the labels which told me which was which.

I bought 3 of these as little plants 3 years ago and planted them in pots. Year 2 they grew to about 2ft and were a delight to look at and also covered with butterflies. I pruned them as instructed and put them in a spare garden bed for the winter. In the spring I put 2 of them back in their pots and they have just started flowering but they are much bigger and a bit bare at the bottom. The one left in the garden has grown into a massive bush. When described as miniature bushes only hold true  when contained in a pot?

I think they are wild flowers!

I have this in my border and it is one of my favourites as it keeps flowering for months and the bees love it. It is a definite bonus that it self seeds as I want more! I hsve the pink one two.

lupins-and-delphiniums

I am seriously considering digging up my lupins and delphiniums. They seem to be taking over my border. I was looking forward to the their colourful display and then it rained and rained. My border is now a mess, with lupins and delphiniums flopped everywhere. I tried tying them back up but the canes and twine look even worse. Should I dig them up or cut them down?

rose problem

This is the rose in question. I think the stems with the white roses on are all coming from the graft. Will ring nursery tomorrow for instructions on pruning and let you all know. I am a bit worried that there will be nothing left when I have pruned off all the offending bits.
