Root problem (matted in rai

What a brilliant phrase 'digging is cheaper than a gym membership'.  

What to do with my red saxifrage?

Posted: 31/05/2014 at 03:14

I've lost every single one I ever had through careless care.  I had beautiful Peter Pans and another red which flowered prolifically in their season - and then the rain came and they rotted.  I love them but I'm not proactive enough to position them correctly and care well for them.  I'm near the Botanics and I think I must go on one of the courses they regularly have before I risk the spend and loss again.  Would be great to develop a little expertise.

 Ceonothus 'Concha' falling over after continual showers.  Bald headed bluetit - think it has mite or something similar.  Fallen clematis 'Rebecca' and Green-veined White butterflies on Senetti.

Lemon coloured peony - I think I mentioned it in another thread but now I've forgotten the name.  Begins with an A.

 Nearest I have to blue is this fescue.  It sticks out like a sore thumb where it is at the moment but it will be moved beside the other grasses once I get the rest of the intended bed dug over.  In this photo it's been battered by rain for days.  The colour is much improved after a day in the sun.

Anyone know what this is?

I'm really pleased that it's been identified as A.M.  I suspect there must be some in neighbouring gardens and a seed has strayed into mine.  I'm short of space in this small garden now but I'll dig it out of the tub and put it in a pot for a while.  How interesting that it's turned up.  I'll bear in mind all the above comments and while it grows will come up with a plan on where to eventually plant it.

Oooh great this forum is for little surprises like these. 

Thank you everyone.

This seedling has popped up in a large tub.  Does anyone know what it is please?  Many thanks.

Great Hostas in all the photos.  Hostafan - you are really in hosta heaven there.  It's fabulous.  I have a couple including the one in this photo which is in the shade, but I don't know what it's called.  When I bought it a few years ago it was only labelled 'Hosta'!  Do you know which it is?   Many thanks.


What's this??

Looks a really healthy geranium you have Daniel and as said above, a good one for a division or two I think.

Sara I love your phygelius.  It's gorgeous.  I have a red one called 'Scarlet' something but it doesn't do too well in my garden and has never grown more than a couple of new stems.  Do you do anything special with it...and great that you get it to reflower?
