Splitting a clump of Trachycarpus Fortunei

Posted: 11/01/2015 at 16:11

Glad Edd replied first because I assumed it was one plant to be split.

I would separate the 3 plants now.  They will grow better as individuals 

Witch hazel

I have moved witch hazels successfully but not sure they take too kindly to it.  

Fluffy Cloud, mainly yellows,,bronzes, and reds.  witch hazels are lovely in flower but nothing special at other times so not really a centrepiece shrub I think.

as always, we gardeners disagree. Don't we love to?   I would move it immediately after it has flowered so in the next couple of weeks.

Associating hydrangea limelight,

Meant to plant hydrangea limelight today but looking for something special and different to associate with it

So far considered rudbeckias or geum  totally tangerine or lobelia hadspen purple around its feet, and heleniums, salvia uliginosa, and actea black negligee at a higher level.  However, these are my thoughts but any better ideas out there? Verbena Bonariensis spiking above it too...?

Gone through the system with Trading Stamdards Dove.  Nothing like doing it yourself though to be successful

No Alan leave them be.  Tempting to pick but best to feed well again and not to pick until 2016.

Oops!   Didn't take heed of the salvia (in the thread title) in question.  More haste less speed methinks!

rebecca,,why did you choose this particular plant?

however, please stand up for your rights as I originally outlined.  

Local trading standards, if anything like down here, is a pretty toothless body now.  Useless in a couple of personal instances including a scam involving a family member.  In this case my own determined persistence and effort paid off eventually. Trading Standards can advise but usually do nothing.

Yviestevie, I have  Mollis Pallida flowering right now. ,lovely scent and it brightens up top of my garden.  Mine is in an open spot receiving good light and plenty of sun but dappled shade would be perfect. It's not a plant you would want to move again so if your recipient spot is very shady can you plant it elsewhere!  

Amanagawa has always been on my wish list but the perfect spot has never been available.  Must create a position for one.

HELLO FORKERS!

Good to see you back Fairy.  The forum was lacking a bit of your magic
