Planting out now

Posted: 25/09/2013 at 14:15

Hiya pokhim

Aster little Carlowe. Rudbeckias, etc are tough and hardy.  If they are in reasonable size pots now then, yes, plant them in the garden.

Echimaceas, no.  Leave them until next spring.

Its a,good time to plant out shrubs and perennials,if they are hardy and of good size.  They will make good root systems now

Most mildews this year have been causes by hot dry weather.  Most,people seem to think they are the result of dampness.  More moisture and most of those mildews will disappear.  Solution in the growing season is to cut off all foliage and water well

Edging for beds

I put in a concrete edge between,lawn and border. ,6" deep and 4" wide to,follow curves, etc.  Very effective, very natural and problem free.  The edges you can buy all,have flaws I think and many are too flimsy.
