Row of Laylandi dying - Why

Posted: 10/09/2015 at 00:35
Thank you Lyn, I'll put that in my memory-bank. It reinforces the fact that they may be long lived and nobody knows how long they live as they have not been around for so many years yet.

Row of Laylandi dying - Why

What do you mean they don't last that long? They have only been around since, I think, the 1930's so nobody knows how big they get, or how long they last. Could be 100 years minimum.

Louise, fill a small pot with soil and pin the runner, still attached to the mother plant, into the soil and it will root, and hey presto you have a new plant. As your question was some time ago, you've probably done it already.

George, Strawberries over-winter in the soil, no need to protect them, they are hardy.

My Willow or Hazel, which one and what's going to happen ??

Definitely a willow! Yes it is too near to the fence. And yes, it is going to get bigger. And what is digging under your fence?

If they are for winter colour, I would do it in, perhaps, February. They may have rooted by then and you will have several plants.

And badgers.

Where are we ordering our summer bulbs from?

Why not take the free bulbs and give them to someone? Or plant them in pots? Or practice a bit of Urban Gardening and plant them in a park?

It's a handsome flower, pity it is such a bad weed!

It is a good idea to start them off in modules so they have developed roots, then the blackbirds won't pull them out of the soil.

Not sure why you think it's too late. Are they designed for early planting?

Not necessary to remove the flowers, unless you have time and the inclination!
