Coreopsis Limerock Ruby

Posted: 15/09/2014 at 16:45

Hi Nut.  It's only balanced in the pot at the moment, but it does indeed look good.  Ill put it in properly and keep it potted over this winter at least then.  Perhaps I could take some cuttings and experiment with them in future years.  Are they easy from cuttings? Or perhaps divide?

I was advised to leave echinacea til spring. Think that might be because of my heavy soil tho.

Hi, fell for this coreopsis at the garden centre. Photo doesn't do it justice. It's the most gorgeous autumnal dark red.  Can you tell me if it is unadvisable to plant it in my clay soil.  Would it be better off in a pot in my border and if so how my grit should I mix in?

if it can go in the ground, ought I wait til spring to plant?

I'm ok planting tulips earlier than Nov, in pots, aren't i? It's just not to put them in the ground early in case they rot?

Hey all.  Would it make sense if I come to west acre on 20th and postpone beth chattos?  I don't know if I can yet.  Need to talk to hubbie and whether he has plans that day (it's ringing a bell but can't think why).  IF I can come on 20th and IF I can have the car, then I could pick Dove up.

Hey Dove et al.  Sorry, only been doing flying visits lately so sorry missed this chat.   Still up for Beth chattos.  Can't do another tho - would be fair to go out two weeks in a row. will post when have more time tonight. Looking forward to seeing you all soon

Still a bit unsure Dove. Think they like alkaline soil whilst mine is acid?

am I right that sunflowers like alkaline too?

Geum TT is good call.  I've got some so could have a go at propagating.  Plus there's an apricot geum (mai tai I think) that I'm intending to get so fits the idea of not too many different types.

let me know re the verbascums as would like some if they could tolerate acid clay.

Didn't think they'd work on my soil, Dove, so had discounted them. 

would appreciate thoughts on something a bit earlier though.  As Verdun said, it'll be a summer border.  Which I don't mind much, but if  I can get something earlier in, that'd be a bonus

Oh, think Hogweed was talking to Lydiaann, rather than me as the naughty highjacker. Queue, embarrassed face.
