What can I do to revive this shrub

Posted: 28/09/2014 at 23:43

Prostanthera, when I've grown it, is a sun lover.  A plant for well drained soils.  For me it is hardy, even the white flowered version, but still a short lived plant. 

I,would dig it up and put it in a pot and take it into a GH .  Take some cuttimgs too.  

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Saw my mum today.  Disastrous, shocking, awful.  Felt like I had been run over by a steam roller.

Yesterday she was happy and all smiling.  Today she was aggressive, nasty, accusative, threatening.  She may have an infection though.  

She is in a nursing home but my intention was for her to transfer to a residential home after a couple of weeks but not In this state.  

Winter Care for Imperata 'Red Baron'

I would keep in that pot undisturbed until spring then divide it.  Roots are shallow so don't  plant too deep.  I tend to pull apart and plant near the surface then plant out in groups

Bet your clothes have a nice fresh smell Chica.

You can plant out winter hardy onion sets now ...they mature a few weeks earlier than spring planted varieties

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

You will have 2 views on this contentious subject so I'll give mine...again.   Dont plant bamboo.....any bamboo ..in your garden.  I dont care what variety it is , just don't.  

Ironically, bamboos will take over your garden but suffer in a pot.  Don't release that thug.  If it's the worst of the thuggish kind you will surely regret planting it out.

It's a bit late to try and dry those onions properly.Adrian.  They will not store too long

My onions have been drying for  past 4 weeks.......red and "white" .  Had a nice red one today with a large piece of cheese 

should i just give up or buy a new fork!?

Posted: 28/09/2014 at 22:49

Cotty, broke a fork just a couple of weeks ago.  Break secateurs every year.  Trowels just don't last for me either. Need another lopper too  as I broke that early in the  spring.   Snapped a good stainless stele spade last autumn digging up a conifer.  Truth is I am heavy handed, impatient and reckless.  I have rather a reputation for breaking tools .....can anyone here lend me a couple ?  

I tend to assess tools as I see them.....usually if they come with a guarantee.  

Late perennials for the white garden
