Iris Cliffs of Dover Hi Crocus Advice please. All the Iris 'Cliffs of Dover ' appear to have died back to ground level is this normal for Irises and will they reappear next season? Thanks Chris

Chris Greenshields

Hello Chris These plants do die back at this time of the year so I would not be concerned and then put on lots of new growth in spring. Best regards, Helen Plant Doctor

Advice on planting your pre-designed Red Summer border Dear sir/madam I am particularly interested in buying the Red Summer Pre Designed Border. Please can you tell me whether these plants are suitable for planting in conjunction with weed inhibiting fabric. I want to minimise the amount of weeding required. Many thanks for your help Ruth

Ruth Hamilton

Hello Ruth, You can plant these into the weed supressing fabric without any trouble at all, provided you make sure the fabric allows the water to drain through. All you need to do is cut big crosses into the fabric and peel back the edges to plant and then fold back the edges again. I hope this helps.
