and how come I only have left handed socks ? Life is soooo confusing
Another brill morning.......warm already
What a lovely time of year in the garden......rich colours everywhere. Agree with Monty when he said the "autumn" light brings out the full colours. However, it still is very much summer but I guess light levels are diminishing
Have good day everyone
Tordi, how old is your plant? New purchase or been in the garden a while?
Looking at your leaves will indicate if there is a deficiency of iron,,magnesium, etc. a simple spray of Epsom salts will rectify the latter.
Bamboogie, ??ou seem to enjoy plants I do.
Removing hedychiums actually was quite a workload. 3 year old plants had huge woody and very lomg and deep roots. Main issue was that nothing else could grow in an increasingly large area . I guess cannas do something similar too so I divide these every 2 or 3 years
Yes, it's important to look forward but the past is important too. I have this argument with my brother who has no sentiment for the past or the people of the past. He has the same attitude to the present ....and the future? lily Pilly, I disagree. We are not the only omes who matter
Folks. This thread is apart from garden matters. Those who don't like it do not need to read it but many of us will value it I think.
Lulu, try perlite mixed with mpc ......
Oh dear! What about my nighttime arsony behaviour ?
Nice hedychiums ....down here they spread too too much. Had various varieties and gave them to a friend who has acres. So I still get to see them. For me they also,have nice scent
Bamboogie, lovely garden
Great idea KEF
lets use this unique thread. I've recently aired my concerns about my mum and will post them here in future
Penstemons are not really great after 2 or 3 years. Cuttings taken over the summer will produce good flowerimg plants next year, better year after and then decline.
I remove flowered stems as offen as possible ......not doing so reduces the flowering capacity.
