    Masses of sumptuous, double, reddish-purple flowers from mid-summer to late autumn.

  • Garden care: In early spring cut back the previous year's stems to a pair of strong buds about 15-20cm (6-8in) above ground-level and apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the plant, avoiding the immediate crown.

  • Q:

    Lawn overhaul, am I doing it right?

    Hello again, Since we have been using your web site and getting our plants and shrubs from you we have to say, that although it is a bit of a treck for us to get to you, it has always been well worth the trip. I have another project to do now and that is to completely overhaul the lawn. It's 120 sq mtrs and has developed brown patches and has not grown much this summer. I intend to give it a good scarifying , aerate it properly, give it a good feed then completely re-seed it. Can I put lawn sand on top of the seed to protect it from the birds, as we have 2 pigeons and blackbirds who visit our bird table. I had a lot of conifers in the garden which I have had removed stumps and all, - I think they were taking a lot of moisture out of the grass. Do you think I am going about the refurb.of the lawn in the right way. Yours Tom

      Hello Tom, There are many reasons why lawns develop brown patches, but it may be that yours just needs a bit of TLC. It sounds as if your planning on doing everything correctly, but I would be careful about feeding as this may burn the new grass seedlings. As for using sand, your best option may be to mix the seed with the sand before you spread it as this will also make it easier to see where you are placing it. I hope this helps and good luck.
