Talkback: What to prune in winter

Posted: 06/02/2014 at 20:15

Summerwine

Its simply just responding to that hard pruning, viz., just growing.  

I would cut it all down.  I would then ...in spring....prune again lightly to emerging shoots and aim to encourage a bushy plant.  It would restrict its energy to grow so much in the summer perhaps,helping it into flowering mode.

Hello gold croft

Nice to meet a fellow grass grower.

Depends on which grasses you have but don't do it yet.

So, what do you have, what size pots are they already in amd how long have they been there?  Have you divided any yet? Most grasses benefit from division.

Punkdoc, but just remember the many you helped recover from dire circumstances. Not many of us can say that 

Nemasys Vine Weevil Nematodes

Jess forget the soil thermometer.  You need to wait several weeks yet.  Nematodes will simply die now ..besides nobody will supply yet.

Imcreasingly I'm in the minority here but Provado vine weevil killer will work now.  It will kill those grubs regardless of soil temp or season.  

For me treatment with Provado to save your plants now is worth it.  Then you can revert to nematodes in late spring.  Then a cycle of spring and autumn nematodes every year. Works for me.
