Whats happening?

You sound contented smokin.....

Im a 2 minute walk to the Towans approaching a beautiful beach.  No stones ..just soft, yes golden, sand.  But Cornwall is increasingly  busy now.......ESP during July and August.  Probably rhe quality of life is good compared to many areas

Morning folks 

Really sad about Robin Williams.  however I felt he was often just on the brink of "sanity"  Just as it was with dear old spike Milligan.  So many of these apparently extrovert comedians are indeed very sad within.  I know myself I joke non stop when on edge ........

Looking nice and sunny now.....I can just make out my blue shirt hanging behind helenium Moreheim Beauty.  Could move it to contrast  with canna Durban.....decisions, decisions  

Hellebore Leaves Problem

Yes Lyn, I always remove leaves before,then because flower buds are already pushing through and you can then see them.

No Berghill.  I'm well aware of that.  My comment was in regard to Lyn's about not  cutting leaves back until Feb 

The greenfly question had been addressed already

Dove, that's awful for you about your mother.  Traumatic realisation I guess that things wont  apparently be the same.  Yett it doesnt really change your relationship, what you had with her or your closeness to each other.  I dreaded my dad going down that road but he never really did.  My mother ?  Well. It's hard to say at the moment but it's not looking too good.  Thoughts with you right now though ...I know it's difficult 

 

Hellebore Leaves Problem

These past 2 years have not been good for helleborus black spot.   Many of my,nellebores have it so I remove the affected leaves.  Hobsons choice....they do no good to the plant if left but if left will exacerbate the disease.

I remove all leaves in autumn 

Astrantia hasn't flowered flower

Posted: 11/08/2014 at 19:18

Woods ki, if they are growing.....and they have added several inches....then they aren't dry.  Often astrantias need time to settle before flowering.  Also their peak floweriNg period has generally past

Just leave them to settle in Woodski 

Newly planted Dogwood Tree advice

Posted: 11/08/2014 at 19:09

Well,,domt really know how to answer this.

Not good to cut that off rootball.....prob fatal

Rooting powder is not for trees and shrubs.  It's  for cuttimgs 

I would take cuttings from your dogwood now and pop them Imto pots of compost.

Often dogwoods layer themselves....check to see if you can see part of yours with roots apart from the main rootstock.  If so plant or pot up

Forget the feeding for now.  Just water and water well.
