yes, I've been trimming the leaves but this is the first year it's flowered.

Yes, I had already decided to try that but hadn't actually got around to doing it!

My Trachycarpus has flowered - what do I do with the stems now that all the flowers have gone, should I cut them off?

I've started a new thread on this problem so you can find replies there.

It's called 'green soup in my water barrel'!

Thanks both - interesting about the watercress, I'll give it a go but it looks as though I'll have to start again.

I have a problem with my barrel pond, the water has recently turned very green.  We set this up last year during the late Summer 2012 and left it unplanted until the end of May this year when I put a water lily in.  The lily is still alive and is throwing up new leaves but the water has gone this horrible green - I haven't got oxygenating plants yet so I'll get some today but is there anything else I sould be doing?

Some are calling it Mexican Petunia - I think it's lovely whatever it's called.
