Hi, being trying to respond but clingy child keeps insisting on either me or the iPad.  I think we should postpone.  It'll be a grim journey too, and such a shame to go to all that effort and not see the garden properly.  Let's try again for a date next month.  Garden may be better closer to autumn anyway, rather than at the august lull. (Ok, so looking on the bright side, there!)

Staking standard fuchsias and the like

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 07:16

It's a mature plant.  I had to stake myself as it came in one of those plastic pots with staking mesh attached- had to destroy mesh to pot on.  So I've had to risk the roots.  Will be having a go at cuttings though so will do as you say.

Advice please!!

Bit confused.   How would a bamboo block less light than a berberis? as Beaus Mum says, photo would be good.

ive not done a great job of staking my standard fuchsia given it's got a lean and I've just spotted I've damaged some bark.   a search online suggests a single stake but talking to Artjak the other day and she suggested crossing stakes (actually for another plant).    Cant seem to find any pictures of this or advice articles.  Can someone direct me? How do you stake your standards?

Astrantia Addict

They are supposed to be Astrantia Major Roma. So not just a named variety but a restricted one.  They were bare root in Feb, not now.  I just mean it's their first season. Sorry to confuse. Happy to wait and see. The whole border has a lot do maturing to do.  But a bit irritated if they are not what they should have been.

You laugh, but actually dawned on me that might be out and my phone, although supposed to do internet, is rubbish.  So I might be texting Dove to find out the verdict! Happy for you guys to make the decision and let me know if I'm not about
