Goldcroft

Elijah blue is a blue festuca.  I divide mine in spring.  Dig them up and pull apart and pot up in good compost.  This keeps their foliage looking good and rejuvenated the plant.  And you will have more plamts in early summer to plant out.  Or simply gently combyour fingers through the plant to remove dead stuff. 

The brown one sounds like a sedge ....I cut mine back in spring almost to the ground.  It grows quickly.  Again, you can pull this plant apart and pot up but in this case I usually pull apart in half and replant in the ground.

I guess there must be some happy customers of the Canny Gardener.  Truth is though that most people had trouble with them and that's why this company failed.  

Help Black Spot on Rhodedendron

Hiya Bonnieweething

I would not cut anything right now.

How big a plant is it?  Are the black spots more like soot or actually black or brown spots?  

If its a soot type issue I would try and wash the leaves.  Then spray with fungicide.  If black spots again I would spray with fungicide. 

 

Talkback: What to prune in winter

Pam

I cut back lupins in summer by removing the flowered stems.  

No cutting back now though.  If there are dead/brittle old flowered stems remaining just clear them away. That's it.  

Lupins are already sending up new shoots here now. You could scatter some fertiliser around them soon and the odd slug pellet.

What is hapenning to my lawn in the winter

Posted: 07/02/2014 at 09:02

Most damage to lawns ...I think...is caused by leatherjackets amd chafers in autumn.  The solution was a lawn grub killer which has really been banned
