HAVE A FANTASTIC BIRTHDAY NUT 

HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 29/09/2015 at 08:27

Hello forkers 

took spike to beach at 6 30.  Warm. No wind. Big moon.  Light and bright. Peaceful 

forecast is good for a good while yet including weekend.  

Salvia Waverley ....just a small plant.....looking superb.  Will move to plant with a purple shrub, maybe berberis, cotinus or heuchera

 

Soil. How good does it need to be, really?

Check out a new compact mahonia,,Soft Caress,  Librarians Garden. Evergreen, soft architectural foliage and delightful yellow in autumn.  Underplant with Berry Smoothie heuchera for an eyecatching evergreen display

heathers

No not really Tina. 

you can dig old heathers up ....with full rootball intact.....and replant several inches deeper.  Cover with a mixture of soil and compost.  However, I would not bother.  I would remove and plant something else Tina

Louise, not much sunshine there then.  Sure that's all?,

witch hazel dilemma

Posted: 28/09/2015 at 21:10

I would remove the whole thing and replant with another witch hazel although not in exactly the same spot.

none of your options is ideal.  All are a compromise
