Talkback: What to prune in winter

Posted: 07/02/2014 at 18:38

Pam

I cut back lupins in summer by removing the flowered stems.  

No cutting back now though.  If there are dead/brittle old flowered stems remaining just clear them away. That's it.  

Lupins are already sending up new shoots here now. You could scatter some fertiliser around them soon and the odd slug pellet.

What is hapenning to my lawn in the winter

Most damage to lawns ...I think...is caused by leatherjackets amd chafers in autumn.  The solution was a lawn grub killer which has really been banned

Nicola, solanum is easily pruned in spring.  I grow album the white one and it flowers forever here.  Lovely,thing when smothered in bloom.  Only thing against pyracantha is it's viciousness.  It's thorns are long and dangerous.  Not a nice thing to bump into or brush against.  Another honeysuckle, jasmine, solanum or clemaris montana there for me.
