Yes, agree.  My rhubarb is a bit like that and it's a yearly thing until I water it.  And water it WELL 

Osteospermum Cuttings?

Posted: 05/05/2014 at 07:59

Osteospermum cuttings are the easiest.

They often layer themselves but pin down a couple of "nicked" stems and cover with soil.  In a few weeks you,will have new plamts.  I find cuttings take froable every part of the plant.....half and half perlite and mpc is excellent.

dafodil leaves

Daff foliage looks fine if you dead head them.  It's only when the fosilage starts to yellow that they look drab.  Then I push them under shrubs or flat n the ground.  By then they will not be affected by this.  When the yellowing turns brown remove them 

I also take advantage, after flowering, of dividing them.  Without breaking up the clumps too much I pot up and feed well.  I am at that stage now with many of my daffs

plant ideas for this old pot

Agree with Busy.  Red was first colour I thought of.  

Red sedums, pelargoniums, gazanias, sempervivens, or aeonium swarzcopf (have to check that spelling cos think its wrong) growing out of a carpet of sedum spurium.

Its not a large pot.  One simple theme will look best I think 

Ants eating pansies

Ants won't eat your plants.  However, they can kill them by burrowing under them.  Just make sure soil is firmed now and then or use ant killer there.
