I would pot them up into bigger pots to overwinter in gh Forester. You will have much bigger plants then come next spring

General questions about English hollies

Posted: 26/07/2015 at 17:23
Chris...yes very overcrowded. Hollies grow large even though they can be pruned. I would plant one and plant herbaceous perennials in the space.
No expert on birds so no doubt someone will,comment about that.

You can move it now. Make sure you dont disturb the roots too much. Moving them all the time

Yes Jo. When I was fighting at Hastings I saw Harry get it in the eye. I look forward too to weekend excursions to Mars in 2100. Dr Who? He has nothing on me re immortality. (Where are the smilies when you need them! Ha ha )

Yes Jo.....nice foliage plant. Prefer it without flowers. If you like this check out Iris Pallida Variegata.

Nice thick grass Fairy. (Despite advice not to sow grass seed in summer I find it germinates well if well watered). Going to put stripes on it?
A small patch I reseeded 10 days ago germinated in about a week

Seaweed spray, for me, is more of a tonic Jo. Spraying plants...foliage....but not in hot sunshine is beneficial. If leaves are dying back then leave well alone. When I said dont cut leaves I referred to healthy growing leaves. When foliage is clearly dying you can cut them then and clear away
most gc's have seaweed spray but I am using Shropshire Seaweed this year
I'm not getting emails via the forum right now or able to use smilies so system is not quite at its best
You didnt say which variety of sisynchrium you have Jo.....do you have tall variegated,,usually evergreen, or small low growing varieties?

Morning Jo......I thought I did reply but I'll have a quick look

Paddy, camelias are pretty tough but if you've had a reasonably hot dry summer so far your camelia may not have enjoyed that. Did yoy water it well and not let it dry out?
If mine, Yes, I would cut it back to healthy wood. It will not flower next year if it recovers though. I would water it well and then mulch.
If its going to recover you should see signs of it over next few weeks.
