Feed borders now?

Posted: 15/08/2014 at 21:30

Ooh, that's very handy advice, Fidget.  I fed my borders in April and then June, and then thought I should stop.  I've got dahlias so will just do them with a bit of tomato feed.  New borders, so just working out what to do!  Ta v much!

Hi guys,

Had an idea.  I think some of you are off to a garden at the end of this month? Sorry if I'm out of date.  Work has been very busy and I've not kept up with the forum.  I'm only on now because mid watch of GW on iplayer I thought of a forum Q. 

Anyway, how about making the last sat of the month our garden day?  so always arrange a trip for then and whoever can make it goes.  That way easier to plan ahead. Will prob get a different group every time - but that's great!

you guys are going this month. (I can't make it.) we could retry Beth Chatto last sat of sept.  (Not that I've checked with hubbie but fingers crossed and anyway if I can't, there'll be a garden end of oct....)

Whaddya reckon?


ID please!

Nut, I'm so glad to hear you say that about spireas.  I just don't get why people like them.  II've  lived in several houses and each has had a resident spirea.  Each time it's been uninspiring.  Boring leaves. Boring flowers that last two minutes before going over.  Last winter GW mag has a section on how to prune so did exactly that on current resident spirea.  Spirea leapt into life in spring..... And looked exactly the same   by mid summer but smaller.  I decided, it's not me, it's you dear spirea.

just watching tonight's GW on iplayer.  Monty's feeding his pots with comfrey.  Does this apply to borders too?  Ie is it worth giving my rose bed, clematis, and herbaceous border an extra boost (I use rose feed on roses, tomato feed on clematis, and bfb/ chicken manure pellets on herb)  now?  or is it too late in the season?  For some reason I thought you shop stop June/July time.

Hi Hollie Hock.  I'm planning to sow perennials in my greenhouse this winter.  most packets recommended sowing from feb into spring.  Are you saying with a greenhouse for overwintering,  I could get them going in coming months rather than waiting til February?

Help please.

Aw, thanks SG Lily.  I've never been much of a houseplant person.  I find they just gather dust and look awful because I don't look after them.  But there seems to be a stirring of houseplanting ness in me!  I wonder if it is a progression??  as I've got more into gardening I find myself admiring things I never even noticed before (is there such a thing as a gardener's eye??!!)

I'm quite taken by the pseudopanex too, Topbird.  RunnyBeak, you may have started a trend....
