Berghill is spot on.  Bigolob  too. Why prune?  Not much growth to,produce flowers on amyway.  Whatever variety ??ou have, Carole, plant it in the garden.  Don't prune before you do this....why would you?  Plant, feed with,balanced fertiliser, water and leave it alone.  It is unlikely to flower next year too so wait for year after for flowers.  It will not flower on wood made next spring.

Mrs garden, glad your songs doing well.  That's great.

That rudbeckia reminds me somewhat of heleniums.  If you have a good moisture retentive spot I recommend heleniums.....sahins early flowerer just goes on and on amd on and on and..............

Hello coys

I like to grow,these "cushion" hebes as densely as possible.  A tidy up....in spring now...with shears.  Try to encourage that round tight shape by cutting back but not too much into old wood.

Lovely colours from those begonias.  The only ones I grow are the Bonfire cascading types.  Very long flowering amd easy.  Small vivid red or orange flowers upright then cascading.  Brilliant show

Few years back I tackled a council guy spraying weeds on roads n pavements. ,waving sprayer around like a guardsman on rail platform. ,got him before he reached my property.....I shot him, of course.  Well, he might have sprayed my plants!

Poorly Hellebores?

Sounds lot better than the usual mpc. MACAVITYTHECAT.  I have used my own sieved soil, sieved mpc, and perlite for containers.  One bonus ...one reason for the mixture.....was a lack of vine weevils.  ESP with top dressing of gravel

Looks great Christine.  Lots of hard work there but now the rewards!

Slugs

Slugs n snails eat dianthus when the flowers are out. So, out of season, they won't be touched. Caterpillars also ...prob more so....eat,pelargoniums.
