What's the star in your garden right now

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.

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

Cutting Back Penstemons

Posted: 30/08/2014 at 18:00

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.  

Football season - 2014

I think man united will struggle all season.  The team has lost confidence, arrogance and a winning mentality.  David Moyse should have been given more time.  

I think the European teams have sussed us out and british clubs will struggle in Europe this year. 

HELLO FORKERS!

David, funny isn't it?  Scent can be great for some yet awful for others.  However, it's the foliage ......it's so, so, so good.  A little moisture in good soil so quite easy.  No, never really been fond of chrysanthemums but I guess I could reconsider them.  Perhaps it's because I used to grow so many that I tired of them. 

Oh lily pilly never thought of doing a video.  I guess I could  

Chicky, I do have a red helenium but I want to add a couple more. However, red dahlias are providing lots of reds around the garden as it is.
