Lantana grown as standard

Posted: 02/01/2016 at 17:18

Cheers!  Good luck with your fuchsia and I will report progress regarding the Lantana on here in due course. 

 

I'm growing it from seed so it will be a while yet!

Lantana grown as standard

We've grown Lantanas as bushes for a few years, having first come across them in Tenerife.  We also remember seeing a very large Lantana standard in a garden centre years ago and would love to try one ourselves.  Jim at Beechgrove has started one but I can't find the programme that it was on.

Has anyone grown a standard Lantana - I'd be grateful for any hints, advice etc.

Prior to receiving this one, I had never had any interest in Orchids but I think I'm becoming hooked now!

Why are the leaves of my tulips mouldy?

Thanks very much for that. I'll wait and see what happens with the rest of them and then I'll dig them up. 

Is there a problem with the website today – it’s driving me nuts!

It's strange that, just after I created the thread complaining about the website, it suddenly perked up and today it's keeping up with me again, so at the moment, all seems well. 

 

@ Edd - I know what you mean.  I do touch type and I think that was even more frustrating because the letters took ages to appear!

Home made compost - why do I get seedlings?

 Thanks for that - I was thinking it was just me!  I've had potatoes before now!

No I don't use it for sowing.

Cheers both!

What’s wrong with the website today, I type away like a mad thing only to find that there are letters missing, there seems to be a delayed reaction between me hitting the keys and the letter appearing on screen.  I’m having to type everything in Word and then copy it across.   It’s not my machine, there’s no delay at all on Word.

After they flowered, I let them die down as I do with the ones in garden. I left them in the pot over Winter - I don't normally bring my tulips in, they just keep coming up year after year.  I've never grown them in pots before.
