It's what they do benjy. select one or two branches now if they have no flowers and cut them,hard back to the base. Or,,after flowering do it then.

Disappointed ..

No...I will Dove.  Honestly.  I can eat yours and Wonky's for you . I don't mind doing that for you

no Tetley, they are plants not available in gc. ,

as long as I have them that's the main thing.  I will now just make sure I have plants filling 5 litre pots by autumn.  I prob would have cut one back and planted the other out for the aummer.

Hydrangea paniculata Sundae Fraise

Or now into the ground voyagerxp...?  Much better in the ground.  Not really one for a pot.

Ok, that might help a little Dove.  How much ice cream?  Will there be many  raspberries cos my disappointment is huge

Ideally pull down those green shoots in preference to cutting them off.  Cutting often bestows increased vigour to those green shoots

i find reversion is more likely if a variegated plant is growing in shade

just taken delivery of a couple of new agastaches.  They have arrived with every stem broken.  

Carefully sifting through I cut off broken stems and been left with  a crown of short shoots......still time for plants to grow and throw up some flowers in late summer I guess.

first time using this supplier but my instincts are that it is a sound provider and that the packing guys had an off day

emailled supplier immediately so will see what response is

i am so disappointed......comforting myself with a quiche and a lager.  It's ok...I'll be alright ....I expect

Greencab.......if designated for the garden I would design it myself.......prob build it myself with no worries about quality.  Top quality.  Probably a new pool...raised with seating and bbq. That would be my £20,000 gone.

Look....for every supporter of bamboos there are dozens of critics.  

Best to consider CAREFULLY Before planting bamboos.  

Without doubt it is a RISK.  Smoking can cause cancer.  Not every smoker gets cancer.  

 because a bamboo hasnt apparently spread doesnt mean it hasnt spread.  Where on earth do you think those roots are going?
