Salvia 'Amistad'

They should have aurvived this winter MsGreenFingers.  So mild but the wet would not have been appreciated.  Mine have survived down here.

my feeling is yours prob are ok....it's still early and night temps have not really been high.  No, dont dig them up just yet.  not good to mulch too close to stems either. 

Amistad is relatively hardy so cuttings are always necessary every year.

They can be huge.  They spread.  Bamboo like stems and energy.  Give them space StillLearning ...plenty of space 

Buying plants on the spur of f the moment

Posted: 02/04/2016 at 18:55

I have dozens of impulse buys or plants I want but unsure where they go.  Hoping to lose some plants over winter but that hasnt really happened.  Large pots are the answer so that plants can grow on for planting later 

What's happened to the picture adding function?

It comes and goes on my ipad.  And the settings panel is a nightmare to use. 

to enable toolbar I have to log out and log in again.  Even then it is unreliable.

Oh yes, Flowerlover.  Pot up asap and you will have 4 more decent size plants by early summer.  Keep moist

Camellia

Posted: 02/04/2016 at 10:23

Camelias need a neutral soil at least......janice, get a ph tester from gc.  It is cheap but will tell you if your soil is acid or alkaline.  

"Feeding this year"???    NOW  is the time to apply a sequestered iron feed and the rest. I think your plant is jusf starved of nutrients...the sooner you treat it the sooner it will recover, hopefully to flower next year too

Well, it was will it be fine or will it be damp for today. Some parts of Cornwall are fine. Not cold..its pretty warm......and it looks brighter.  Just that it could have been a really nice day but for that crooked bit on low pressure system. 

Had a load of planting to do this morning...not mine...so it is a nuisance.  I blame the EU
