Is it too soon to split sedums?

Posted: 05/03/2014 at 13:13


You can divide your sedum now.  However, it may better to wait just a while longer amd split when you see active growth.  Actually here growth has already started so maybe with you too.

To prevent your sedum becoming too leggy cut it back hard in late spring.  Resultant growth will be sturdier and flowering won't be delayed too much.

Companion flowering plants to plant among heathers

It's what makes for good debate and forums....that we are all different and therefore interesting.  My conifers for example are as good as can be so,that they look good as specimens in the winter without browning or blemish.  Probably I am a little "precious" in this regard but nice clean shapes are an attraction for me in my garden

Check out Trehane Bueberry in Dorset.  They supply mature bushes, give good advice and are THE experts.  It's where I bought mine.  Wouldnt really buy from Lidl if you're looking for fruit early Lori

reusing old conifer stumps

Can you cut those conifers to ground level djjjuk?  I would then apply stump killer and plant as said earlier.  I would cover the tops of the stumps with soil ....maybe even a couple of pots to stand on them.

Looking good there Tracey.  Bet you're chuffed ....always nice to get new planting done.  Getting a black hellebore soon myself.........know I want it but now need to consider ow best to set it off.  White snowdrops inthe foreground seem obvious yet appropriate but between a yellow hellebore and a double white is my chosen site ....I think
