Pyracantha Growing Conditions

Posted: 21/09/2015 at 10:32
Keep the pyracantha well away from your front door. If you get a thorn in your hand it will go bad. Wear thick gloves when you prune it. They are pretty vigorous, but well worth growing.

Do a bit of research because the berries come in various colours. Choose one you like. Yellow, red, orange.

What is your reasoning for cutting the tops off? I think we have to just put this down as a bad year for some; me included. Last year I had so many I could hardly keep up with them!

No! Patience is the thing. Maybe it's a year when we don't get good crops.

You will have to examine the actual kernels, you can't really tell just by the hair.

Sorry, Lou, that is called fly-tipping. You may cut it up small, lots of people don't.

If you do it at night, is that because you know you shouldn't be doing it??

I have the greatest affection for Shchizostylis. It would definitely not go on my list!

Isn't that odd. A white crocosmia would have to go on my 'plants I don't like' list, as to me that wouldn't be a nice crocosmia. Like pale red hot pokers.
