Thanks for the advice.  Would have got back to you all sooner but not had any internet as there have been problems in Essex.

I have left mine in the pot in the greenhouse over the winter from the moment I have put them in the pot.  They come back every year without fail.


Moss in flower beds.

Hi, any ideas how to get rid of moss in flower beds ?. 

I have decided to bark all my flower beds as I do not have the power in my hands or arms in which to keep forking over my beds and want to minimise the work in my garden. 

I have Spondylosis of the neck and I am finding it difficult to do some parts of gardening.  I want to make sure I have got rid of all the moss before barking as it will start clinging to the bark and do not want to have to replace it every year because of it.

Any ideas would be helpful and much appreciated

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.
