Only by growing in a pot Alan.
however, you can prune back...a single stem, for example, when cut back will produce multiple stems. Rub out shoots not required.
20 lbs Hosta? You must be feeling fitter! Well done
Is that really you LilyPily?
milder but overcast and plenty of rain overnght I think. Stormy weather tonight but weekend looks good......could be pretty warm
Perki,,I would use fresh compost.
my cannas...outside....have not yet died down this winter. Had I not cut them back I think they would still be flowering....
Runny,,blimey...you have been busy
Wise thinking Yvie
You're hinting just a little Tetley that you don't like this little beauty. Ha. Ha
it is a weed though.
Dont't do it Dave
oh! You did it
well done and it looks good in that attractive and more practical pot
Yvie,,they usually self seed. They tend to make clumps for a couple of years or more before "flowering". I have had 2 or 3 grow here...they are smart enough to sneak in where they are not easily spotted
I remove when I see them
Aphids are the cause Meomye. Their excretions create perfect comditions for that soooty mould. Ideally remove by wiping/washing the mould and then apply insecticide during the growing season....a couple or so sprays. Kill the aphids, prevent the mould.
rose clear wont remove the mould
