Mahonia soft caress

Thanks Obelixx.  yes, it does seem to be a little on the tender side but prob ok here.  Charity at the moment  has masses of flowers but not sure if Soft Caress is so prolific.

Help with Foxgloves please.

The colder weather is yet to come Pfuk.  I suspect snails are nibbling there so watch out for,them in the spring when new growth appears.  No, I wouldn't cut any leaves off right now.

Cutting Back Hebe

too big to really control it now I think Jimboss007 although I have done it to a white flowered variety.  It did respond but took a couple of years.  They are so easy from cuttings but I would wait a few weeks yet to do that.

however, if mine I would remove it now.  Plant something more to your own liking.  its a good time of year to clear it away and replenish the soil there then decide what you really want instead

So warm here.....prob 13 degrees. ,just come back from a walk across the Towans to the beach.   However, light drizzle trying to push in now.

dug up an old convolvulus cneorum a few weeks back and replaced it with a yellow leaf santolina.  pittosporum Tom Thumb stands behind and above.  Needs more thought though cos silver grey looked good there esp when blue Linum also flowers there during the summer.  Maybe the curry plant or has anyone got an idea for a low growing silvery plant?

Lyn, I would cut back your violas.  Give a light feed say end of the month. 

tete a tete?  They will need good light as they die back so can they stay indoors for a while longer?  I would then plant in the garden

Mahonia soft caress

An article today about mahonia soft caress has re-awakened my interest in this plant.  After researching it I thought it was a little too vulnerable to disease and flowered too sparsely. 

Anyone growing this?  Does it flower well?  Any problems?
