Herb Garden Essentials

Posted: 02/07/2014 at 13:27

.I'm surprised Marjoram isn't on your list... I wouldn't be without that one... evergreen and pretty flowers about to open soon..makes a nice little plant for a container...and my favourite herb to add for cooking I think, along with Greek Oregano... Lemon Thyme is another..although I find that difficult to keep going..

Hi Salino, Molineaux is the home of Wolverhampton Wonderers! Lots of rivalry between the two teams.

..although it's a small photo in the post does enlarge beautifully Yviestevie...and we can zoom in - all important ! you could carry on that way... what's that one...Crown Princess Margarita..?... not grown just a guess..

..oops cross post...I see it's Molineaux...that's supposed to be a really good one...

..what's that got to do with West Brom..? I don't understand that bit... your garden looks really nice..

Hydrangea paniculata Sundae Fraise

Posted: 01/07/2014 at 23:29

..I've got 2 of these paniculata Hydrangea's...namely..'Phantom' and 'Limelight'... both are planted in semi shade... 'Limelight' in almost full shade really...hardly any direct sun except late in day... these will also grow in full sun and flower well for it... I used to grow variety 'Kyoshu'... in full sun...    the one you have will grow in a container as it's dwarf... but I always think ground is best if you can...

..mine have flower buds on them now... 'Phantom' is a mass of buds but 'Limelight' got eaten by snails early on... this is something to watch out for...they will eat the emerging flower shoots... however, with a bit of t.l.c. [i.e. liquid feed] it's recovering...

planting between shaped bushes on a fence (tall structural plant ideas please)

..I've planted some Hollyhocks next to some bushy evergreens for this season....flowering shortly... next year might be different...

..they seem to call it 'Silver Ghost' on Crocus... just as well you got it through the RHS though artjak, as it's a pound cheaper through them... quite architectural isn't it..?

..I can also give a good report about the RHS plant site....but you do know artjak, that their plants are supplied by Crocus...? they just have different offers going on...'s Crocus by another name really...

whoops..sorry my mistake....I meant Tess of the d'Urbervilles...which is a similar colour to William Shakespeare... and one I mean to get myself sometime I think..

Rose Cutting Successful - now what??

Posted: 01/07/2014 at 20:16

..roses rooting in a pot of water would be a new one on me... they're not like Fuchsia's... normally, you cut off a shoot about 9 inches to a foot long, trim off most of the leaves except few at the top...and bury most of the stem in the ground - somewhere quiet, sheltered and out of the way....this is done in Autumn and by Spring you might find it has it will start growing... leave in ground until following Autumn then replant if necessary...

hi Yviestevie.... those are lovely roses you have...I've grown a few in the past..currently have Mortimer Sackler...a rose that blends so well with Clematis 'Niobe'...I find... but if you want another rose then perhaps William Shakespeare 2000, might be suitable..there is a photo posted of it already on this thread, by Busy Lizzie I think...few pages back... this one sounds as though it's one of Austin's best so far...from the accounts I've read... don't have it myself...
