Invasive shrub

Jap anemones can be highly invasive.  I think prob in mild areas it is worse.  

Not advisable to plant these in a valued border......it can ruin it.  Best look for alternatives......Wild  Swan is a wonderful ( and better) hybrid.

It's my birthday

Solution needed

Currant bushes are usually not too difficult to dig up.  If necessary a crowbar but a spade, fork and secateurs or pruning saw for tops and roots.  They may look daunting but have a go 

Overwintering Cannas

A handful of dried cow manure into the mix and organic fertiliser will help cannas in pots I think......in spring. Good moisture content too in summer 

 

Rotating Beans Yes / No

More sun the better Newboy.  Fewer beans on the shady side.  Can you grow beans away from the hedge?

mine is a sunny garden but the shadier side does produce less beans

What's the star in your garden right now

I used to grow zephine drouhin over an arch until it suffered badly with rust, black spot, etc.  in mid summer I used to cut back hard and the resulting growth was clean.  However, without foliage or flowers in mid summer it was an eye sore so now have honeysuckles there
