Re: Palm trees stolen Leominster!!

There are only two reasons why people would steal plants: 1 - They are just assholes and want to cause disruption. They have probably dumped them down the road. 2 - **worryingly** they have knowledge of plants and realised their value. The resell value of plants is very low, so it is likely they hav...

Re: best general liquid feed?

I never know how often to feed plants, when to start and finish during the year, how much to give.

I just do it when can be bothered! icon_scratch

Re: My Garden farewell

Ah I want to propagate lots of Aeoniums for a bedding scheme next year :) so if their cheap that's good, seen them on gardeners world before but not found them in my local GC. Passiflora's are nice, I have 3 of the amethyst, 1 edulis and a common caerulea which is hardy. Caerulea is still my favour...

Re: My Garden farewell

For me, Dicksonia Squarrosa outperforms Antarctica every year in terms of frond retention and length.

Is this the same for others?

Re: My Garden farewell

What is the plant in the bottom right corner of my arid bed? It seems quite fast growing and is getting a bit too big. Can't remember what it is, whether it's hardy etc etc icon_scratch And another thing, how long does it take for viable seeds to form on the Echiums? They have almost finished flower...

Re: My Garden farewell

Great plants Tom icon_thumleft Is that arid bed inside your polytunnel :ahhh!: Dave I cheated. I was sick of loosing my Echiums so I put a polytunnel over the bed during the winter. It worked! The reason I had to take the tunnel down in early spring was that the Echiums were hitting the top. icon_t...

Re: My Garden farewell

Kata, I have learnt from this garden. I have made lots of mistakes and didn't really plan anything. When I move I am going to rely heavily on the advice found here. First off, the shady courtyard which I am tempted to cover and make frost free. (But more on that later). I should be moving in 2-4 wee...

Umm, It asks me to log in again using a screen I have never seen before. And my password doesn't work. Is it admin only?

My Garden farewell

I will shortly be leaving this garden for pastures new, so I thought I would take some quick snaps, especially because not many plants are coming with me. I haven't really looked after the garden a great deal over the past year. I just simply have not had time. But some areas are looking ok... I was...
