Yes that is normal. They eventually turn green.
two things....dont water every day. A good watering now and then is good. And, is it in ericaceous compost? Pieris need ericaceous soil. Ideally ericaceous john innes for lomg term health
Hi Mr Cress..er Mr Mustard
never too late to mulch. ideally mulch after rain or after you have watered your plants...obviously previously removed weeds.
whenever I plant something I water then mulch.
Change in weather..........cloudy but very warm. Humid. Possibility of odd showers. Minimum of 16 degrees tonight.
Agree about scent in the garden.....I try to have scent all year round.
Fishy, I guess many of us take more and more from our lawns but I would not be without my lawn. Mmy area...areas...of green to relax in, admire, sit in and play on. That unique smell from a newly cut lawn! Would not be without that.
Soaker for runner beans and veg.....very effective
I find too that regular removal of spent flowers and stems helps make for sturdier plants
Yes Aliesh, I grow rigida. Leaves are quite sparse and not at all like yours.
mine are about to,open flowers
Not forgotten Runny. Beans are 3/4 up now. Not a lot to see mind...carrots, spring onions, beetroot, rads, lettuce, peas and blueberries in that patch.
Ah! You got me there jo. in my experience most geums need moisture but if tall guys like totally tangerine are well watered they will be more lax. I grow TT in dry and rich soils here but the sturdier ones are in drier soils. For me,,it's all about experienting with plants.
Love that colour Davids......
