Well, they are giants so I don't think they will be happy in a pot. They grow much more than 2 ft. across if they are happy.
They like to be by water. To protect the crowns from frost the leaves are usually placed over the crowns in the Autumn.
Too old - at 46!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shame on you. You're only half way.
They sell them widely for watering hanging baskets.
They do sell realistic artificial flowers/plants now. Have you thought of those?
Wasps do a lot of pollinating too. It is only later in the year they are a pest.
You are also a lot bigger than they are! Learn to love them.
Would it not be better to offer no advice to your neighbour? Whatever you say the neighbour will either ignore or resent whether you are right or wrong.
Sumach is not a good plant as it puts up suckers. And garlic should be kept well away from gardens, though it does die down quite early and can be mown off in a lawn.
Hogroast, back to your question about fertilizer. It is best to scatter fertilizer on the surface of the ground and maybe fettle it in gently. If you put anything in close proximity to the roots there is every chance you will burn them.
IME Sedges don't need any fertilizer, unless you are growing a very refined, special one.
Sounds like you already have a weapon with the greyhound. Excellent!
Because the original plant may have used up all the nutrients, or most of them.
Before you buy it, do a bit of research and find out how big it will be in, say, five years, and you may think again.
Not sure why you will have room for it in the future, but not now. It will not be happy in a pot.
Don't forget to bury the bottom of the fence. And get yourself a good terrier or gun! Or both.
