Query

Posted: 26/05/2013 at 22:00

hello, i have two Haworthia plants which are in flower at the moment but are also pot-bound. they have also sprouted ( if that's the correct term) babies all around the mother plant.

according to the information in my plant book, it states that propagation is by seeds.

my question is this --when should i try and detach the little plants and will they survive ?

thanks   

What did you do in your garden today?

Posted: 26/05/2013 at 21:36

As the weather's been fab the last 2 x days (for a change), have washed all my pots including ones to give away on freecycle. repotted house plants, taken cuttings of some of those as well. potted on some new perennial plug plants and bought a few more while they are on offer on well known superstore.

have managed to do lots of small jobs and am very pleased with my effort

hiya, thanks for all your replies.

it was really nice today being outside all day for a change, had a good clearout of rubish and washed all the pots ready.

will pot up the Iberis as they are quite small but no chance of putting outside yet as still really cold at night.

Happy gardener2, i'm in SA6

OMG really ???

at the moment in South Wales we have gale force winds and torrential rain that's been lashing down all day !!!  It's also really cold, more like March than May.

Plants are as follows -- Salvia, dwarf Phlox and plugs are Iberis.

 

Maybe i can cover them with fleece in greenhouse for extra protection ???

hello, having ordered a selection of perennials to encourage more Bees into the garden and having now received them, i now have a problem because due to the weather/cold nights i can't put them in my unheated greenhouse in case they die.

six of the large ones are in my kitchen and i'm waiting for the large plug plants to be delivered.

can anyone suggest where they should be put when i receive them ???

 

thanks

 

 

Things that thrive in large pots

Posted: 13/04/2013 at 12:06

hello, i have two large wooden planters that did contain Box topiaries. Even though i fed/watered them regularly they never looked really healthy so decided to put in the garden instead. I now have two empty planters and wondered (before i buy) what would be better suited to the planters.

The planters are on the patio and couldn't be moved elsewhere as there's nowhere else to site them. I did wonder about Dwarf Syringa as i already have a mini ceanothus in a large terracota pot on the same site ???

We're very exposed to the elements and no shelter in the way of hedging or trees.

 

Would welcome any advice. Many thanks

hello, am debating whether to buy a few Winter Flowering Jasmine (Yellow flowered) to put in very large containers on the patio.

my question is this -- will they grow well in containers ??

 

thanks, shazza
