Which Witch Hazel!

Posted: 26/11/2014 at 23:30

I grow just one Mollis pallida. it is nice, scented, and attractive.  Easily pruned but so far I have done very little of that in 6 years.  I think there are more colourful varieties now and possibly stronger scented 

Enough is enough.

its just a forum...a very friendly forum.

Doronicums for early season succession planting

Posted: 26/11/2014 at 17:05

Euphorbia polychroma is a great early yellow flowered.  Will more than cope with later flowering perennials 

doronicums, for me, don't flower long enough.  They need plenty of water too.

How about drumstick primulas ?

i enjoy the yellows though.......each to his own.  

Bowles golden grass is a must for a yellow garden.......evergreen butter yellow stalks culminating in creamy yellow diaphanous flower heads in late spring.  The whole plant is yellow.

Why was santas's helper sad?  Because he was in poor elf.  just thought of that.  The spontaneous ones are so much better, aren't they?   Aren't they?  

anyone reconise this plant description? please ?

Nut is soooooo quick off the mark.  Yes veromicasteum.  I grow a few varieties and they are all superb.  I've been singing their praises all year.  

Cannabis, Cangranmafixit?  Mind you it is a very attractive foliage plant.
