Ooo chicky....that makes you my favourite 

What's the star in your garden right now

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 09:17

I have to re mention rudbekia Goldsturn .   Wonderful this year yellow ochre flowers that are now deepening in colour with the lower  light levels.  Been flowering for weeks and weeks and weeks at a height of 3' to 4' .  So easy but not really outshone by much else.

(after some experimenting with aspect and soil they are at their best in moist, humus rich soil)

Yeeeeeeeees Philippa 

Chlorotic skimmia and peris

Posted: 06/09/2014 at 19:29

Flora rosa,,is,the skimmia in the open?  In the  sun?  Skimmia needs some shade  but it won't like watering every day either.  Not a great plant for a pot. ,I also,find skimmias  need a season or two to settle down

The pieris will prob benefit from sequestereme but as a cheaper alternative spray with Epsom salts ASAP.  Spray  again in a week.  pieris needs some moisture. Needs acid soil.  Is ground a little dry?  Is your soil acid or alkaline?  Have you tested?
