Cornus sanguinea 'Midwinter fire'

Posted: 14/10/2016 at 23:33

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.

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

Dear all


Checked the Broadleigh brochure and they are not on there when i try it on their web site they send me to minnature ones, CheckedChiltern seeds and they only sell seed for one miniature one and have often bout form Kellways but they do not sell them either. I am going to Tatton and will look for them there but do not hold out a lot of hope. A Spanish company used to sell them but they don't either anymore.

Does anyone know where I can get Pacific coast Irises? I have a few and they are wonderful growing in shade but Broadliegh gardens, where I bought them, no longer seem to stock them anymore and I would love a few more colours as I only have a purple/ Blue coloured one and I have just read that they look lovely against rhododendrons.

you are right it is Cupea Llavea we are just finding out if it is black face or cha cha, though we are fairly certain it is blackface.
