I have experimented a little with the chop.....have delayed it until,mid summer when growth was not so vigorous and flowers were smaller.   For best effect no,later than June I think

I have a birthday this year so what are ŷou going to get me?

I too,use the boiling water method with guaranteed success. However, last year I could not germinate it after several attempts.  Hoping for better this year 

Year-old photinia "red robin" hedge looking sick

Sarah, it could well be vine weevil damage.  What did you use?  Provado?  

Is the ground wet there?  Does it slope down there?  

I too think a good feed is sensible.  Photinias didn't like that wet winter and many nutrients will have been washed away.  I would give a light cut after a few weeks' growth.

Hopefully your plamts will be fine when good weather returns.

It's not really crucial  about the exact timing.  I do it when growth looks strong and May is good time....time for regrowth to produce good flowerimg.  think I did it before "they" spoke about the Chelsea chop. I like sturdy growth and,,usually, the chop produces more flowers

Yellow is the colour.......

I love the colour yellow in the garden....yellow flowers or foliage...but it's not to everybody's liking it seems.

So, convince the doubters folks.   What's your favourite yellow plant?

Right now daffs, primroses, euphorbias and hellebores provide lovely yellow flowers. 

HELLO FORKERS!

Mrsgarden, not like yellow?  Check out osteospermum voltage yellow, dahlia yellow Honka, yellow lupins, hey!  There's a new thread there.
