Posted: 11/08/2014 at 18:01

You can lower your  ph Jason......flowers of sulphur for example. However dont do that 

Use  ericaceous John innes compost .....there is a great Blueberry supplier on line....Dorset blueberry company....that will supply amd advise on varieties 

Astrantia hasn't flowered flower

Posted: 11/08/2014 at 17:56

I suspect they are dry woodski.  Astrantias will not grow where it's dry.  Water well even if it's raining.

No bamboogie, trimming Tennuissima will not produce a second flush.  Those flowers should still continue  a while yet.

Hordeum is a more colourful grass than Tennuissima ...less Perennial of course.

HELLO FORKERS!

Nice grasses DD. .....grasses are so versatile. Currently I offen take my dog where masses of whispering miscanthus grasses are planted.  The sound is magical.  So sound, tactility (?) colour, movement and height......why not grow them?

Hey!  Wots all this ere then about me being older Orchid lady?    Just because Im so wise, beautiful, charming, modest  and ......er, vain.....doesn't mean its coincided with age.

Oooooooooo!  Who will win the prize? 

red robin photinia fraaseri

Photinias are odd fellows.  Loads of frustrated posts about them.

Anyway, no I don't,think it will regrow Ian.  Because it is such a temperamental shrub some will post in with different opinion.  However, I feel ??ou will simply allow an ugly stump to spoil your garden by not getting rid ASAP.

For me, I,couldn't wait to get rid of mine.  Had 2 red robins and neither recovered from being cut back into old wood.

Yes nut.  Seed is cheap as chips and easy to germinate.

Blowing in the wind it looks so good.

Well,if it's a pampas it will have sharp leaf edges...reason why I dug  mine out.

Lily Pilly, yes I too have gigantea and love it.  Been flowering for months ....prob since May.  No sign of flagging and unaffected by wind or rain 

Help please.
