Overwintering pelargoniums-how often to water?

Posted: 08/12/2014 at 18:34

I over winter mine in my cold greenhouse, they come back every year, only bought them from Morrisons.

I have been growing them for years after going to Beth Chatto's Garden in Elmstead Market.  I also grow them from seed which is a joy and they germinate so easily.

Berberis is a good hedging shrub with barbs, it is reddish in colour and yellow flowers in spring.

Buying seeds online/eBay

I always buy seeds and plants from Ebay, I have never had any problems with any sellers and they are always good quality when they arrive.  I would recommend it.

Talkback: Couch grass

Posted: 17/04/2014 at 18:24

I had couch grass in a big area of the garden of the house I live in when I moved in  13 years ago, it took me 4 years to dig it out.  Thankfully the soil was very light so could get rid of any bits that broke off.  I now have part of it as a veg garden and the other part has got edging slabs and is gravelled with my geranium (cranesbills) collection around it looks lovely all summer.  Have bought a new arbour seat to go there as I get the sun most of the day and evening.

It is Lily of the Valley, just looked at a plant in a pot in my garden this morning and it has now flowered and that is what it is.
