Prob right Dove but it does depend on soil condition whether vinca survives. ,in my case it WAS overwhelmed by a poor soil.

Rhubarb Removal

Posted: 19/05/2016 at 22:38

Cairnsie, I have never had a problem removing rhubarb.

the roots are big but a couple of feet deep is enough to remove them.  

Rhubarb removal really is not difficult 

how do i get rid of bluebells

A friend with 5 to 6 acres has bluebells in her wooded area.....currently populated too with myosotis and daffs.  Wonderful to visit and leave there 

The longest flowering perennial is........

Prob right Chicky but taking cuttings in mid to late  spring and then to overwinter in a gh in colder places. I grow the more tender varieties 8000 Wildflowers but if you give them sharp drainage, warm soil and not too cold for too long in winter should produce survivors. they all survived outside this year.  

Sorry, I can't stop gushing when talking about agastaches.  

Bowles Mauve will exhaust itself eventually therefore, again, cuttings every year

my hardy osteospermums are in full flower...have been for a few weeks now....and will continue well into November.  Well, hardly ever without a flower.

agastaches start soon and just don't stop.

What flowers for longest where you live?

I used to grow hollyhocks....grew to well over 7' until rust took over.  It comes suddenly.  A few specks then a mass.   Perennial hollyhocks are now a thing of the past for me but I have my verticals still with delphiniums. Veronicastrums, bonariemsis, agastaches, cannas and more.  

Fowl treatment or wot?((
