Dividing Aubretia

Posted: 12/03/2015 at 13:22

Pegging down those srems will not produce Individually  strong plants very quickly.  Only division of strong clumps will do that Jonesk.  Growimg from seed will probably produce quicker and better plants.

however, there are some attractive variegated aubretia about as well as some really good colours.  be patient and keep your eye out for small good quality plants is my advice. Better to plant quality than quantity every time

Bramble is not that difficult to clear.  I have cleared masses of it.  

since you have already put in a concrete barrier Minxy continue to cut all long growth back and spray regrowth and old growth with glyphosate. ,be persistent and diligent.  During the growing season aim to spray 3 or 4 times.

Cut them back fairly hard........take the lanky stems off to create a spiky mound (like the technical stuff? )

Date palms

Dong grow it Hyacinth.

they grow well down here in Cornwall but beware of their vicious foliage.  

I had 2 in my garden but removed them because of their foliage.  They look exotic. They are not really a garden plant. 

Good drainage and not too hardy in cold areas I Think

a big no from me

Hiya nodlisab 

cut them back now and use for cuttings.  They will root in a few weeks.  A light granular feed and light mulch then for your pot
