Planting Yucca in Ground

Posted: 11/05/2015 at 12:26

Think again about planting yuccas Tim.  I removed one for an old neighbour few years back when he seriously damaged her face on it.  She was inch or so away from losing her eye.

Winter, I appeal to your sense of goodness.......send me your choisya white dazzler 

lovely day ...very warm. About 17 degrees.  Will get in a couple of echinaceas later from a batch of Cheyenne from last year  so not sure of colours yet. They are all in 3 litre pots now so well established

Posted: 10/05/2015 at 21:01

Any time Caroline.  Pot them up asap.  I would though choose  Ashwoods.  Select colour and type you want 

Salix Tree

Chicky, hell black spot is hugely debilitating.  Last year I, my plants suffered () spot on a quarter of hellebores so I cut lots of leaves.  This year those plants did not flower so this year I've decided options.  Firstly, the affected hellebores were in the dampest shadiest spots so this year I have removed plants too close to encourage a freer drier air circulation.  Secondly, I am spraying alternately with systemic fungicide and seaweed spray. So far the plants are looking strong and healthy. Time will tell

I strongly resemble that remark Fairy. 

Bloomin' sparrows keep messing on my car wing mirrors.......any suggestions?  Is sparrow pie any good?

got agastache sangria to plant but its been a puzzle as to exactly where.  Usually grows 5' tall, erect, narrow and delightful pink flowers so its pretty special I think.   I've narrowed it down now to 2 possible positions.

Any one planted out their runners?

My beans are planted out......prob about 60 cm tall.  If night temps are still low where you are folks.......lower than 8 degrees...I would wait a few days before planting out.  Acclimatise them though by putting them outside during the day
