Heucheras don't like dry and poor soil. I'm still learning, stil experimenting and always testing my plants.
Best wisdom is that learned by personal experience eventually....realising the different micro climates in your own garden. Often a struggling plant will thrive if moved just a short distance...try it

Let's find out who gave me the Lurgy

Hello's just nasty not serious.
I guess it's meant I can spend more time on the forum
Hey, nut, it's been pleasure knowing you on the forum

What has happened???

Sam has now spoken up too
Busy lizzie is he exaggerating too? If you havent recived pm then you havent been invited. not wanted, as simple as that I'm afraid

Miss Becks has set up her own forum...this business has everything to do with her. She has her own agenda and has combined well with the bullies on the forum. But why poach the members on this forum?

As I,said before there those who will deny this is happening. Will walk on the other side. Not bothered or can't be bothered

Thanks Sam for your words and to those who privately contact me. I enjoy this forum..GW forum....and most of the people on it

I hope my good friend Brumbull ....who many of you PRAISED for his threads not too long ago.....can return or find another forum. I suggest those of you who do value him to express yourselves

In real life I have never been bullied. I am not the bullied kind. Probably face to face these forum bullies would wilt away.

What has happened???

Just heard one contributor has been bullied again by pms on this forum and decided to pull out of,the forum. This member was popular, well informed, knowledgeable and kind. So a huge loss to the forum.These same bullies almost did the same to me last year.,

The forum had become fun lately but some members objected to certain threads and have been aggressive and nasty in their efforts to do this. I honestly did not expect this on a garden forum. Those trolls are nothing in have to receive one of,their pms to fully understand it
I have read some silly posts recently denying this as though it's all just a bit of bad tempered's not. It's been about BULLYING. And the bullies are winning.
I have good knowledge of gardenIng matters, have tried to,help where I can with advice and tried to,show compassion just as the,contributor who is forced,to,pull out of,the forum did. This forum will be the poorer and another forum will be the richer.
When you receive your "invitation" to join another gardening club remember when you joined GW forum. You joined because you decided to not because you were approached by anybody. GW forum will soon not exist.
I am a sensible, honest and decent guy not given to outbursts or hysteria. I am saying this as it is.

What has happened???

My lurgy is nothing in comparison. Feel bit sheepish now going on about it....more of a joke than anything though.
Sam, you are an inspiration as is "mummy"

So, you're all innocent then? Not your your fault?

Choisya Ternata 'Sundance': Moved & Sulking

Posted: 08/04/2013 at 09:39
Shadow weaver, did you move it with good rootball or with roots loose and without soil?
I have moved sundance without problem. Wouldn't water it too much right now though.
Me? I would prune back bit later when growth is apparent and do so to healthy shoots. Choisyas respond well to pruning. In cold areas they would not have enjoyed this winter at all. Hopefully your plant will recover

Hello dove I have it in my garden but not a favourite. It seems to be hardy here....2 maybe 3 years .
Bev, bet you ordered from harvington. That double green looks great....may order too. Wonder if the green is really that deep? Got a few double yellow sorts and they are sensational .....from ashwood nurseries.
