Re: echium pininana protection

I have successfully got these to flower in Sout Yorkshire on a regular basis. If yo can get the plant to a decent size before planting out after frosts then protect by fleece you should be ok. Covering plant in total darkness will almosr certainly kill it

Re: My Phoenix canariensis_CIDP rotted in the centre after -

No matter how many garden centres/nurseries tell you that Phoenix Canariensis is hardy you just have to ignore them and walk away. Anything for a sale, this applies to internet sites also, they just wont survive our winters. I have one but in a pot where i can move it under cover, even then it will ...

Re: Slug pellets in the bottom of pots.

Wow! Slugs could eat roots and do eat leaf... drown any slugs and woodlice. No one puts slug pellets in the bottom of a pot, it serves no purpose in my opinion. I don't know if pellets would burn roots H.H. If I put the pellets as a top dressing as usual,would normal watering,trickle down and help ...

Re: Paulownia tomentosa

I'd leave it until autumn and then cut it back and only allow one bud, from the leader, to develop next Spring. This year, given it is still small, I think it will benefit from having maximum leaf area for energy production. I just get the feeling it needs to come off but I do think your right. It ...
