Stipa Gigantea

Decision made...I'm going to leave it where it is, protect it as best I can and see what happens. I did add grit when I planted it so you never know, it could be ok. Will report back in the spring. Thanks again all.

I think I will take a look at them and if they look viable will replant them and remember for these and future bulbs to actually take the time to look after them properly next year! Thank you for the replies. Much appreciated.

Thanks for all the replies. I think I will move it as I will probably lose it to sogginess anyway so at the end of the day it will at least have half a chance. Although...I could change my mind and chicken out before I have time at the weekend. Just call me Indecisive instead of Staceyj!!

I had beautiful tulips for the first time in a pot last spring. They were left in a corner, forgotten and I would like to know if I just leave them and do nothing will they bloom again or should I lift them and re-plant in fresh compost?

I put a Stipa Gigantea in what I thought was a good place in spring. It has been crowded out by Naughtia all summer and is now getting wet feet. Can I move it now or is the risk of moving it in autumn more than leaving it in soggy conditions?

Thank you Berghill. A new bed required I think!

I have three peonies that have always shown promise in spring then stopped with healthy if spindly foliage and no flowers. They are in shade for 50% of the day in a quite stony area of the garden. I assume they need moving but where to...or are they best in pots?

Raspberries in a greenhouse?

Thanks for the advice. I will leave them outside and net them. Great pic by the way Macd!!! 

Where can I grow a grapevine?

Posted: 23/04/2014 at 19:16

I think I'll try and clear a bit of wall space instead of the obelisk. If I have to train the side shoots once the vine is a metre tall, there won't be enough area left as it tapers to the top. Thank you for the advice Marinelilium and jatnikapyar.

 

Raspberries in a greenhouse?

I have raspberry canes growing in a large pot in my garden. I have just installed a greenhouse and wondered if raspberries can be grown inside. I thought that maybe this would give some protection against birds etc.
