Hydrangea help!

Posted: 03/09/2014 at 20:55

And water well in the growing season. Hydrangeas look so much better with good moisture supply.

A generous early spring feed and thick organic mulch will help provide good large flowers and healthy foliage

Delay pruning until early spring

Verdict....your new plants this year

Got 4 varieties ...I think?...of canna.

Want more and intended to get some last year .  Right now until November, maybe beyond, what is better than a canna imposing itself over everything else

Regular pruning is important if only to keep shoots compact and fruit inclined 

Ideas for all year round shrubs

Choisya will be nice there.  Evergreen, bay scented glossy  tactile leaves.  Orange/vanilla scented flowers in spring and early summer with an aroma to waft beautifully 

phormiums

Got it.  Alison Blackman 

phormiums

For me Phormiums are adaptable.  Cream delight is a vsriety I think will do well there. Worth trying.  No, wouldnt put it in compost bag.  Best to use its contents in the soil.  I grow a variety ....or the life of me I can't remember the name but it's not common.....with very sharp dark green and yellow leaves in quite a bit of shade.  The name  will come to me though

Verdict....your new plants this year

Interesting David. Those  dwarf gaillardias are exactly what I have been looking at. Worth a try I think.  Only reservation remaining is that they look too,much like annuals !

Fidget, been there.  Exactly.  Hospital decided to send my mum home before she could walk earlier in the year.  Good luck 

Hope you recover quickly Fairy 

Another beautiful day
