Box of goodies!


Box of goodies!

Three Tiarella 'Pink Skyrocket' and two Photinia 'Little Red Robin' waiting for some light (and dryer weather), so that I can plant them!

They look lovely. I know what you mean about planting though as I have lots of pansies to put in when things dry a little.

They were bought today, in the rain - and I arrived home after dark! The forecast is not too good, either. :-((

2 Nov, 2009

 

Much the same here.

We were spoilt last week, weren't we! I felt really chilly today.

2 Nov, 2009

 

hope you find room for them all barbara :o))

2 Nov, 2009

 

Any chill hasn't hit us yet but I doubt it will be long.

2 Nov, 2009

 

It was 9 degrees this afternoon - after 18 on Saturday!

Oh yes, Sandra - I dug out a whole lot of Jap. Anemones. These will look much better - and won't try to take over, either!

2 Nov, 2009

 

i have anemones to, new this year, do they really take over so much barbara

1) It depends on which ones,
2) It depends on your soil
3) it takes a long time for them to spread as far as mine have!

4) YESSSS!!!! Haven't you read my comments (rude) on them before???

2 Nov, 2009

 

ive heard it said by others and maybe i have read you say it before,mine is called september charm barbara, does that mean anything to you

2 Nov, 2009

 

Nope - but I'll check my RHS book.

2 Nov, 2009

 

Ooops! It says 'vigorous, spread indefinite' - so watch it in case it takes off across your flower bed. Sorry to be the bearer of (possible) bad news.

:o(( oh,, will keep an eye on it now thanx barbara , not like i can forget it as my garden isnt that big lol

2 Nov, 2009

 

Great little purchase Spritz will the Photinias stay small or will you be cutting them back?
I did the same thing today. I went out for dog food and came back with a box full of pots of goodies :~))

2 Nov, 2009

 

I expect you cannot wait to get out there, can you? great box of goodies.

2 Nov, 2009

 

ncie plants Spritz, tiarellas are beautiful, and I wouldn't be without them:)) but then I'm a bit barmy when it comes to that family LOL

Pip - these really are dwarf Photinias. I bought one to be the main colour in a container - ohhhh - three years ago?

It's still only about 12" tall, although it's a bit wider now. I've used it again this year with some red pansies.

These two are to make a group in my bed with the Tiarellas, and they'll be fine together - about the same size!

Tiarellas, Grindle? I shall have to think of the word.....hmmm...it'll have to be 'Tiarellaholic', won't it! LOL.

3 Nov, 2009

 

I will have to keep an eye out for these Photinias as they will be an asset in the structure of a border especially in a small garden

3 Nov, 2009

 

LOL, that means I'm a TiarellaHeucherellaHeucheraaholic

3 Nov, 2009

 

LOL. Betcha can't say that - or remember it tomorrow!

I'm sending you a PM about Crocosmias....

A lovely lot Spritz .. when you say Little Red Robin , do you mean they are smaller than the norm ? because the ones I have need to be kept trimmed to stop them getting to big ............. also to make the lovely new red growth ...........

3 Nov, 2009

 

Yes, Amy - it's a micro-mini-version. :-))

You can't really call it a 'shrub' - it's too small for that! I suppose it could be described as a 'shrubby plant'. LOL.

Only 12" tall - and very attractive! Good for containers, naturally - but these two are going in the garden.

P.S. I sound like a Salesman! LOL.

3 Nov, 2009

 

my kind of shopping..........lol

3 Nov, 2009

 

You photinias look lovely, Spritz. I recently bought one from ebay but although healthy not as bushy as yours. I will trim it back a little and hopefully it will bush out :)

I think they are lovely and will deff. be on the lookout for them ... .. I have about four of the big ones because I love the red colour .........

4 Nov, 2009

 

Oh my these look tiny...I had no idea they were not tall..lol..

9 Nov, 2009

 

Are the ones you mentioned tall, then, Cat? I don't suppose you've got a photo of them, have you?

9 Nov, 2009

 

I will see what I can find.. :o)

9 Nov, 2009

 

Barbara this is the closest I can find to what I was thinking of..have gone through the White Flower Farm Catalogue on line..it is mostly all fall planting things in it right now..I believe what I remember was in a spring/summer planting catalogue...anyway..these are somthing like it..but just not the same as the spires were more totally covered with blooms but very tall as these are..

I have this plant, Cat - it's tall! It flowers in the summer. The flowers on the Tiarella are 'looser' on their stems.

Thanks for the link!
