Thank you.........

Hardening off - is this a good way?

You're in Aberdeen Alex. Bit colder up there.  Keep an eye on the night temps, viz., frost. One night of frost is all it takes to ruin everything.  I would prefer to wait just a while longer before exposing them on cold nights so keep outside if frost not forecast

Neatness.....a swear word in the garden?

Posted: 26/05/2014 at 23:57

Interestimg replies.  Like David's garden though.

My own soon...with the heleniums, dahlias, agastaches, lupins, delphiniums, acteas, etc etc...... do cross swords a little and I like that but there is still a neatness control .

MrsGarden, I too have that impulse to have everything but if the "perfect" spot is not immediately found those impulsive buys are potted and I wait.  It helps that I don't use many,,if any, annuals though.  Most times the space occurs.  Oh, the height thing......try some taller stuff.  It doesnt necessarily mean more space is needed and tall spires are magic in the garden.  

Have to confess though...neat lawn, oh yes!  Has to be lush, green, striped and mown twice a week.  

Rhododendrums

A bed of camellias and dwarf rhodos and azaleas is a joy to see.  If you have acid soil....and I don't........a mix of these and kalmias is a must.  Don't recommend planting those huge Rhodos ...of course.....but the dwarf varieties that I grow in pots are wonderful.  I have planted a bed of such plants for a friend....nothing to touch it in the spring

Camellias

We disagree Mike. Pruning makes a camelia more productive and floriferous.  No, it. Is not essential but is beneficial.

Hey...hope you are recovering well Mike
