Gardeners World ... 'Hatchet' job on Bamboo!!

Posted: 24/07/2013 at 21:01

Yes, Monty planted a huge bamboo in a pot that was obviously way too small.  In a strong wind it,would blow over, there would not be enough nutrient in the little soil he could put in and there would not be enough water to sustain it.  One of his mistakes I think.

For screening Passionate, miscanthus would provide 9 months of cover

Day Lilies

Afternoon keen

They look great.  How do the plants look in the garden?  Foliage wise?  Lomg flowering?  How do you rate  them compared to single day lilies ?   I did consider do le day lilies couple years back but may now re-consider. 

I grow a variegated day lily..golden zebra and I love it.  Clean, eye catching foliage and the orange flowers currently are very nice

Hello Susan and welcome

You say leaves are "going rust red from the tips of the leaves".  Well, I have 4 varieties and a couple of them are also doing that.  I expect these to provide autumn colour and nothing to worry about.  Is it just rust colour or rust pustules?

Hiya lucky

Which Erysimum is it?  Bowles mauve will take a fairly drastic cut back.  Others can't take it.

Take cuttings now....they root quickly and will form good flowering plants next year
