Please Help to Identify Plant

Posted: 12/12/2015 at 12:45

The only issue I have with alstromerias is that they go dormant in mid summer creating a bare patch.  The solution is to plant behind other late flowering perennials

Pruning summer flowering Jasmine

Reg, because your trellis needs replacing, I would hard prune now.  It will recover....possibly flower next summer but a bit later.

I hard prune now anyway....a lot of things are still flowering but be strong

Busy,  out of the blue you pm'd me not to discuss christianity on the FORUM.  Nothing to do with the thread at all.  Christianity is supposed to be about tolerance of others so, yes, Busy, your reaction is "childish".  You have simply reinforced my opinion of how christianity cannot block out everybody else's opinion because it is not yours.

Busy, I hope you do not leave the forum.  I actually enjoy your participation and respect your views generally.    I guess religion should not be discussed between us then?    I apologise if I hurt your feelings....had I considered your pm more carefully I perhaps would have been more tactful.  Perhaps you could apologise too to end this and start again? 

I agree this thread has strayed from the purpose of it.  KEF's thread is important so let's keep it as it was intended.
