Hedychium?

Posted: 06/11/2015 at 16:40

Very aggressive here Nut but in a cold place they prob wont be.  After a year their chunky roots had ventured quite widely.  They are good in large pots though.  You can divide them every couple of years and flower seems unaffected.

actually, I gave mine away to someone who has a few acres so I might get a piece of two back to plant in pots.  Had yellow,,orange and white vwrieties.

hope you appreciated my ginger nut joke back there 

HELLO FORKERS!

Gertie, ring the gc immediately and ask them to look at their cctv....agree with Dove about this.  

Prob the selfish toads that did this....and they would have known....will visit gc again.  

Get the number and descriotion of the vehicle and ask at the gc if they will confirm seeing the incident.

(I have history of pursuing such incidents....like a dog with a bone....so my advice is get those so and so's )

lovely blue sky and sun this afternoon and took advantage by planting my "chain" 

KEF, I remember doing that for my mum last year....I just ticked the most severe option every time.  Agreed though that there's little common sense with these things and a whole bunch of frustration

Yes a ginger nut......get it?  

Garderianum I think....had to look it up...but if it's what I grew it had scented flowers and mine were 6' tall.  Looked a little like bamboo.  

Drat those chains.....

.......oooo I could use a cup of finest tea now...Typhoo 

well, I know of one on the forum who shares those "tendencies" Tetley.  

It's just that I never just plonk a plant in.....it has to associate with it partner, set it or others or itself off;  colour wise, foliage shape, etc. .??  No?

Hiya Nut.  No picture..?  

I grew a number of them but they are such vigorous ....aggressive...plants that they outgrew their neighbours.  

Drat those chains.....

Hiya B3, I mean where you have a number of plants to move to new spots in your garden.....when you remove one plant one of those waiting to be planted can then go in that vacated space.  Maybe it's just me but it's how I am I guess.  I had about 5 plants to move all waiting for me to determine where one needed to go.....???

Help with box plant!

I don't think your pruning did for them Allys.  They will respond to pruning very well but next spring now.

however, there is an issue, or two, with box.  There is a virus affecting them.  There is a treatment, apparently, that will be  mentioned I'm sure and part of it does involve cutting back very hard.  I grow only a couple of variegated box which are fine so this virus has not affected me.  Others on the forum, I believe, have attempted to recover their plants
