trouble with acanthus

Posted: 31/07/2014 at 15:33

I was given 3 of these plants when I first moved into my house with a rubbish tip of a garden, just to fill the borders with something whilst I decided on what I wanted to do.  I just 'bunged' them in and left them to it, in really rock hard, poor soil, in full sun and have never watered them, let alone fed them!  Result? Massive plants with so much leaf and flowers. Have had to cut off a lot of the leaves as they are covering so much ground and I will probably have to move them as they are definitely taking over!!

Peony Tree

I have tree peonies - yellow ones which have grown from the seed dropped from the pods. I pot them up and give them to friends.
