Help with Hostas' location

Posted: 21/04/2014 at 10:31

Ha ha.  I'm sure you will Hostafan.  

Mind you, the national dahlia collections only 5 or 6 miles from me and yet I only visited last year for first time.

HELLO FORKERS!

Blackest, hiya.  Good to see you again.  A WUM is a wind up merchant.  I didn't notice but it seems one was about recently.  As in every forum, group, etc., a wind up merchant appears now and then to cause mischief.  (maybe I didn't see the WUM as I used the ignore function)

Morning folks

Similar plans KEF......top dress amd feed container plants, plant up pots now that temps have risen a few degrees. More plants in pots screaming to go into the ground. 

Been negligent with my sweet peas.  They are in 9cm pots  outside amd been like that for few weeks.  They need planting but I suspect they are root bound.  if so won't grow them.  

This is a time of season that daffs are dying down, wallflowers are starting to lose their     best flowers, stocks going over, as are primroses etc.    hellebores cut back etc but the summer perennials are still not big enough to just yet to make an impact so some parts are looking drab.  Keenness to yank out those biennials and replace with tender perennials.  Cut back Heucheras have now pushed up eye catching purple mounds,,Bowles  golden grass is  starting to flower, dicentras in full flower,  and my favourite broom .Lena is opening its red and yellow flowers so not all drab

Mike, Mike Mike.  Clearly you are loved here.  Polite, knowledgeable and apparently kind.  

Occasionally I take a different view to you.....but then I do with everyone and I am an argumentative so and so......but I enjoy your posts.  Funnily enough I once posted a similar thread...same title if I recall correctly.......

Have great day Mike.  Keep posting 

 

 

Decision of the day

Dove, I'm in a similar situation. Want to apply lawn fertiliser but ground was too dry few days back.  Decided to wait for the rain yesterday.  Dry now and later so will apply later anticipating more rain but, in any case, will put sprinkler on.

However, I would not water this morning preferring to do this in the evening.

You do realise I will have a greener, lusher lawn than you this year, don't you Dove?

Pouring down now.  Good steady rain for few hours now so will do lot of good. Warm though.  

Jacobs Ladder & Japanese Camellia

Posted: 20/04/2014 at 17:17

Nice......free Mikey?  Grow a variegated polemonium...Jacobs ladder...and love it.   I would keep camelia in pot.....acid soil if you can....but plant out Jacobs ladder in good soil soon.  

Dying Red Robin?

Posted: 20/04/2014 at 13:11

I would wait a while longer....ESP with rain about now.  It may pick up.  If so, I would prune it back.

Photinias are a fickle plant.    They suddenly seem to be "ill".  I have Pink Marble though looking good amd little red robin looking fine.  Photinias drop an awful lot of leaves too
