Astrantia hasn't flowered flower

Posted: 11/08/2014 at 19:18

Woods ki, if they are growing.....and they have added several inches....then they aren't dry.  Often astrantias need time to settle before flowering.  Also their peak floweriNg period has generally past

Just leave them to settle in Woodski 

Newly planted Dogwood Tree advice

Posted: 11/08/2014 at 19:09

Well,,domt really know how to answer this.

Not good to cut that off rootball.....prob fatal

Rooting powder is not for trees and shrubs.  It's  for cuttimgs 

I would take cuttings from your dogwood now and pop them Imto pots of compost.

Often dogwoods layer themselves....check to see if you can see part of yours with roots apart from the main rootstock.  If so plant or pot up

Forget the feeding for now.  Just water and water well.

I suspect they are dry woodski.  Astrantias will not grow where it's dry.  Water well even if it's raining.

No bamboogie, trimming Tennuissima will not produce a second flush.  Those flowers should still continue  a while yet.

Hordeum is a more colourful grass than Tennuissima ...less Perennial of course.

HELLO FORKERS!

Nice grasses DD. .....grasses are so versatile. Currently I offen take my dog where masses of whispering miscanthus grasses are planted.  The sound is magical.  So sound, tactility (?) colour, movement and height......why not grow them?

Hey!  Wots all this ere then about me being older Orchid lady?    Just because Im so wise, beautiful, charming, modest  and ......er, vain.....doesn't mean its coincided with age.

red robin photinia fraaseri

Photinias are odd fellows.  Loads of frustrated posts about them.

Anyway, no I don't,think it will regrow Ian.  Because it is such a temperamental shrub some will post in with different opinion.  However, I feel ??ou will simply allow an ugly stump to spoil your garden by not getting rid ASAP.

For me, I,couldn't wait to get rid of mine.  Had 2 red robins and neither recovered from being cut back into old wood.

Yes nut.  Seed is cheap as chips and easy to germinate.

Blowing in the wind it looks so good.
