Action Plan – Nigel Colbor’s essential works for your garden this week
- Nigel Colbor says to plant two years in your borders for next year’s show
- It is recommended to remove floating leaves from ponds daily using a wire plug
- A UK-based gardener recommends cleaning your greenhouse
Show your boundaries
It’s time to plant two years in your borders for next year’s show. This applies to wall flowers, foxes, forget-me-nots, bronchodilators, and any plants that enter the flower after they have been sown.
If you grew your own two years from the seed sown earlier this year, they should now be strong little plants. Replace on a calm day and then water them well.
In severe weather, the roots (pictured right) and stocks should be kept in place to prevent the roots from being damaged. Along with other plants, take care of the roots, taking care of the soil. If the plants were sowing themselves, they would use overcrowded groups, using the ‘thin ones’ to store empty space. If I had forgotten that in the fall, I would not have done it.
English-based gardener Nigel Colburn shares his main advice as the season changes
Mold can often disturb them in wet, cold weather, so they only grow healthy young plants.
Pancakes and violets usually grow for up to two years. If you have self-seeding plants, replace seedlings or young plants for the winter or spring show. In fact, if you have many annual violets, those can be broken down and replanted.
Do plants grow annually? Calendula, Shirley puppies, burgundy? And self-seed. They survive many winters, so give them time to ripen as soon as possible if necessary.
Protecting your Pan Priest
When leaves begin to fall, try to get them out of your pond. Some people spread their nets in their ponds to catch leaves, but these can catch wild animals such as hedgehogs and birds. It is best to remove floating leaves daily using a wire mesh. Also remove any dead water lily leaves and dead plants.
Greenhouse Automatic Blaze
If you have a greenhouse, now is the time to clean it up. Doing so reduces the risk of pests and diseases. When summer crops are removed, clean the stairs and the greenhouse. Remove any shade to receive more light. As the days go by, any plants placed under glass need light.
Plant of the Week – Oak: Abandoned Hydrangea
The oak leaf hydrana (pictured) grows in partial shade
There are many reasons for this beautiful American breed. Depending on the weather during the harvest season, a small oak-like color is left on the bronze-purple. They grow up to 15 feet[2.5 m]and grow to a height of 8 feet[2 m]. They turn creamy with age and turn white when they are young.
This forest floor is a shrub, which performs better in partial shade. It is preferable to be neutral in acid soils, but like most hydranas, H. corsifolia grows in all soils except pure limestone or limestone. Fully frost-resistant, prefers shelter.
The bulbs in the nurse’s mound were crowded. Some can even be packed like apples. Do I have to split the shell and replant?

You can immediately plant ‘winds’. They will be fine and will bloom next year. Choose a sunny spot and plant deep to cover the edges.
It is only after flowering that the stems are picked up and divided. Official advice: Lift, split, and replant bulbs at least 10 cm apart in a fast-flowing, sunny place.
However, a nerne expert once told me that it never hurts. He collected the compressed bulbs and planted them.
