Container drainage

For me polystyrene adds bulk for temporary plantIngs so less compost is used.  Also good for faster drainage 

Physocarpus opulifolius 'Diablo'

Posted: 23/02/2014 at 18:40

Diablo doesn't look exactly alive right now.  For me it is a,very hardy non suckering shrub. I cut mine down hard Annually so mine looks dead at moment.  

Just wait  for a couple of weeks or so ...or even now look for signs of budding. 

Diablo is a bush I can't decideof I like it or not.  Brown leaves?  A hardy geranium, Ann folkard, foregrounds it and sets it off but purple cotinus is better.

I will contribute cash.  For members on the forum affected by losses this winter I can help with rooted plants.

Tracey, you can only join the hellebore club if you send one of them to me.  Those  are the rules  See? 

I was tempted by some hellebores ....candy love.....yesterday.  Bit different to Lenten roses.  I can see myself yielding to temptation tomorrow....I have to drive past the GC in the morning.  

Apart from the wind it's not been a bad day here.  Got some potting up done.  So far everything looks fine with no winter losses so space is limited.  Got to start serious plantIng soon
