A Cautionary Tale .....

Posted: 09/06/2013 at 04:18

I inherited the following which won't stop spreading without glyphosate: vinca major, lily of the valley and some kind of phlox. Also driving me nuts (no pun intended) are the hazel nut seedlings. Don't mind the aquilegias, nigella, forget-me-nots as they're easy to pull out if in the wrong place.

Should be possible provided you take enough soil with it and water it in well in new place.

Any ideas of this plants Id...

I dug up, split and replanted mine last autumn, now have two huge flowering plants. Bought a red one on an auction about 3 weeks ago, the lady dug it up and didn't get all the roots, but it has taken well. Just make sure you don't plant it any deeper than what it was before, they don't like to be deep.

Very sunny and warm here today, just a light breeze, glad that irritating easterly has quietened down. Liz, are you getting a bit of Mistral?

Soil

Clivias love to be pot bound and flower better that way. Unless it is rising up out of the pot, I would leave it. If you do repot, ordinary compost such as for pelargoniums will do, don't use too large a pot, an inch of compost around the sides and and a 2/3 inches in the bottom wll do. If you put it outside, start of in the shade for a week or two, otherwise the leaves will get sunburn.

Here is some information that will help:

Hi greenmaid. I presume it has finished flowering now, so if it was mine I would cut it back. You could cut out any branches that criss-cross each other to lighten it up a bit. Unless the branches are very thick, I don't think you need to seal them.
