Viburnum dawn

I would pot it on as a rabbit or deer could take a liking to it, but it is fully hardy and a shade lover so leave it outside under a tree say. I does like a bit of moisture as it grows very well on my solid clay.

What is your weather like? (2)

Posted: 14/10/2016 at 23:40

Weather was lovely here in North Dorset though hope to get some rain soon as it has not rained for weeks and even established shrubs are struggling and all my barrels are running towards empty. I also cannot plant any bulbs as the ground is rock solid. It is more like August here rather than October.

Cornus sanguinea 'Midwinter fire'

I bought 16 almost plug plant size ass otherwise 16 would have been expensive. Planted them 15 years ago and only pruned once when they had got very tall. I have never had a problem with them except that they layer themselves so always have plants to give away. I assume that as I can grow them easily that they love heavy and composted bark as I top up the composted bark every year. So I would say to all those having a problem to be patient. It took about 5 years for my plug plants to get to 1m tall.

Tulip gavota

Thank you I will try a yellow polyanthus. I tried looking for what to plant with tulip gavota and only got told it was very difficult put anything with it. As it has and AGM from the RHS perhaps they shoudl have possible planting companions as one of the tests before they give out AGM,

I fell in love with Tulip gavota but apart from yellow wallflowers I do not know what it would look good with. Do any of you have suggestions?

Pacific coast irises

Tried I. innominata but if I click on any of the uk sites I just get nothing but the name as nobody seems to have it. I will try some of the others and will speak to Broadleigh when I am at Tatton on Wednesday. 

I grow the native ones but only one will grow in shade whereas the pacific coast ones will nearly all grow in shade and the ones I have are lovely, under my deciduous trees. 

Thanks to all of you who have tried to help
