Bob, sunpeach is a new one to me....will check it out
yes Sungold will grow in a tub Jo.....I have grown them and others in .5 litre pots
Flo, I like yew very much. As long as not in a waterlogged position it will grow well.
I grow a few taxus varieties....tall narrow to mound forming.
my concern though is that 40 cm is very short....taxus will do but what a waste of a plant. And width? the mounding yews will want a reasonable width.
have you considered eunymous microphyllus? Easy, evergreen tiny leaves....a yellow variegated variety and a white one? Lavendar? Santolina?
Why do you want to "frame" your border? why not just plant a variety of interesting edging plants? Sometimes a hedge this small can look too comtrived....???
Interesting lysimachia Marion. I guess it spreads a bit? Got one or two hellebores out too
winter? What winter?
Yoweeyahoo....like it!......I tried sungold....too sweet....and sweet million but the best and most reliable for me is Gardeners Delight. Sharp when orange and sweet when red. They seem pretty resistant too to many diseases.
The only issue I have with alstromerias is that they go dormant in mid summer creating a bare patch. The solution is to plant behind other late flowering perennials
Very enjoyable and imformative thread. I know Rosewarne very well Ian.
Reg, because your trellis needs replacing, I would hard prune now. It will recover....possibly flower next summer but a bit later.
I hard prune now anyway....a lot of things are still flowering but be strong
Sorry Dove....don't always read every thread. all good jokes depend on, er,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,timing
Wanted to pm you Jo. Have a great day
