Thanks Linda, Janey, Grandmage, Elsiemay and Grindle....
Lavenders like this area which gets sunshine just about all day.

2 Jul, 2010

 

I lost both mine, I think I pruned too hard. They went too woody. I've been told now, I shouldn't prune them. Now I know what I've been doing wrong. :o(

2 Jul, 2010

 

Lavenders should be pruned (after flowering) to keep them neat and tidy - i don't think they tolerate their older wood being touched though so maybe that was all the problem was, Linda.
I prune mine hard immediately after flowering and that keeps them a nice size aswell as shape.

2 Jul, 2010

 

Yes, many lavenders are very sensitive to having their old wood pruned ...

... I do the same as Louise, and cut to shape immediately after flowering.. If you don't prune them, they often get top heavy, with lots of dry-looking branches at the base..

all looking lovely TT....

Thankssssss Holly and Sky :o)

What a colourful garden you have Terra -it always looks a picture ;-)

2 Jul, 2010

 

Thanks Richard...
This sloping area faces West which makes it easy to plant... despite the dry, sunny conditions ... :o)

2 Jul, 2010

 

They seem to be striving there Terra ;-)

2 Jul, 2010

 

Thanx Louise and TT. Thats what mine went like.... too top heavy with really dry and what looked like scruffy branches 1/2 way up the plants. They were only shooting new growth at the very tips, so I just gave up on them. :o)

2 Jul, 2010

 

This looks lovely TT. You have a real eye for colour in your garden.
My favourite lavender was looking straggly and woody last year, so I decided it really had to go. With nothing to lose, I took several cuttings and to my surprise they all rooted. My family and friends now all have lavender plants!

Hi Pasuki... Thank you ...
I hope the budgies are well :o)
Glad to know the cuttings from your favourite lavender grew so strongly ...
However much we trim lavenders, usually, they do eventually outgrow their space and benefit from being started again from cuttings.... Your family and friends are the lucky ones !

Beautiful TT so glad to see a pic of the rose `ballerina` it looks as if it`s small and lax enough to grow and drape over a 14" high wall, which is what I would want it for. Cheers.

6 Jul, 2010

 

Hi Stroller... Ballerina is a lovely rose... grows well...
Would drape nicely over the wall.... :o)))

Your garden is so colourful & beautiful. I will be studying your photos carefully, in order to see how you have put certain colours together & how you have balanced it all out. Can I ask you which lavender this is?

20 Sep, 2011

 

Hello Dwyllis ..
Thanks. Sorry I don't have the name of the lavender.

It has been a challenge for me to have the flower beds with colour all year, and not only in springtime ! Lol.

20 Sep, 2011

 

That looks amazing. Wish my front garden would look like that.
