Hello & help

Warm welcome Caroline.  Nice to have you with us

What's the weather like in your area?

Was lovely but now raining and windy.

Woody....that's a hard life you have

aubretia question

Yes good haircut after flowering removing all flowers. For those cascading a fair distance I trim all over but maintaining the general length.  You can cut back as hard as you like but no need to be too drastic.  Aubretia looks sorry for itself after being cut back but it is only for a short while until growth resumes.

Best from seed if you want lots of plants or buy a variety you like....there are reds, blues, even variegated varieties.  Some with large flowers others with small

Welcome nickyB

We do talk about gardening on this forum and not just cake!  Lol. But it's the most friendly forum I've been on

Tina, big emotional experience for you.  I think most of us understand.

Yep, do need that cake now.

Woody, good luck

Weathers still good here.  Expected rain last night but none.  

Getting couple more geum tangerine dream to go with blue salvias, blue grass...elymus magellanicus.....and possibly Heuchera obsidian.  Should come on Monday

Sarah, squash them or just leave them.  They don't do any good though.

Naughty naughty dove.  Lol

I broke the lupin flower off by accident

Posted: 14/06/2013 at 00:11

It's got a good chance of flowering again soon but, yes, cut it back cleanly to side shoot.  Look carefully though, you may find an emerging flower stem low down.  Lupins often flower like that
