Deadheading

No fishy, It will just be continuingly made to think  it must produce flowers.  Cosmos will give up the ghost when the frosts arrive.  No doubt some scientist will prove we are abusing these flowers!

Dahlias and Slugs

Posted: 18/08/2014 at 19:01

Emma, dahlias  have suffered very badly this year.....the worst ever.

My method is to pick slugs etc off at night.  If I,havent,really got the time I will simply visit the dahlias only....as I,did last night.

I cut off damaged stems,  leaves amd spent flowers and new growth soon follows.   Agree that tubers are more likely to recover. 

Herbaceous perennial plugs

Posted: 18/08/2014 at 14:13

Never plant out any plugs direct into the garden

Why would anyone do this?  They look silly, losses will be high and they will only grow 

very slowly

Always pot them first in order to create a garden size plant in spring.
