Agastache Black Adder

Posted: 06/08/2015 at 23:40

Never grown agastaches from seed Lyn so all credit to you.  I tend to take cuttings from named varieties...mostly these do not set seed. they are a bit of a gamble cos they are a little tender and like their feet warm 

 Calamagrostis Lyn!    You could check out Molinias .....I,grow just one but they meed more moisture than I can give them. 

Lawn Help

Want to green it up vervant?  At this time of year I apply a liquid lawn feed.  Cheap enough from any GC or DIY store.

water it on and in a day or two it will be much greener and lusher.  Try it 

I agree about mowing.....once or twice a week and not cutting it too low.  Its been very dry here but I still have a green lush lawn.  Blades set reasonably high and cut twice a week

Cuttings taken now will make nice small plants to overwinter....reminds me to do the same in a day or so

Tresco purple fairly hardy. Cannington roy is the hardiest in my opinion.  Gemerally,the cascading spreading varieties are the true perennials.  Down here most of them are hardy.  Gweek variegated is hardy here too.....a pure white variegated variety.  Voltage  Yellow too is hardy for me

There are now lots of brightly coloured but annual varieties sold everywhere but these will not survive most winters.  

Anyone done any gardening today?
