what is this??

Posted: 12/10/2015 at 10:18

Hey Folks!   This is a very, very, very invasive plant. 

Yes, bulbs will grow through it.......!!!!! 


(A neighbour wanted a piece of mine few years back....mine in a pot in the pool.....and I warned her not to put it in the garden.  "It's ok, It's lovely.  I want it to spread" she said.  It took over her back garden ......"lovely" soon became a "nightmare". )

Connie, how long has it been there?   This plant should never be in the garden

at this time of the year try to dig it up.....scour the surrounding soil for roots and remove them all.  Be prepared to spray new growth in the spring and several times during the summer

you can grow houttunia chameleon in a pot........moist soil and a saucer under the pot as I do.   Or grow in a pond.

I've recently cut back a whole bunch of pelargoniums hard back.  Two to clean them up and then to take up less space.  

Watering should be minimal now.  clean the pots, plants and compost of all dead and decaying leaves and debris that can harbour pests and diseases.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Achillea Moonshine

Moonshine can grow that tall.......there are some less vigorous varieties.  I cut off flowered stems to the base.  I dont mulch or feed and growth is more sturdy. Pretty much evergreen here
