Re: Drought tolerant species for Turkish garden

Message from Paul Kemp

In forum: Garden design

Hi Simon,

I used to live in inland Catalonia and have some experience with plants that need to be tolerant both of drought and some cold. I recommend that you read "Pour un jardin sans arrosage" by Olivier Filippi (this is also available in English but I'm not sure of the title) and "Steppes" by Michael Bone and Dan Johnson. "The Dry Garden" by Beth Chatto is also recommended. Depending on where in Turkey you are, there should also be plenty of beautiful native plants, for example Phlomis, irises, sages and poppies, that you could use. Please just let me know if you'd like some more specific recommendations or information.

Best wishes,

Paul

I think it's an ornamental sage (Salvia) - perhaps called 'Hot lips'.

This looks like a Russian sage as the flowers are like spikes on the stems

Hi Ben,

We have sent your image and question to our social media followers and they have asked for closer images of the plant. We currently have few suggestions of sage or plantain. Do you think you could upload some more photos please?

Thanks,

Re: Sage advice.....

Message from Carol

In forum: Salvia officinalis

I would cut off anything that looks ugly and anything that is in the way. It's not going to do it any harm at this point of the year.

Sage advice.....

Question from Louise Jefferies

In forum: Salvia officinalis

My sage is starting to look a bit ugly with some yellowing leaves and speckled white all over from the leaf hoppers. Can I cut it back now or should I leave it till spring? How much can I chop it back by? Many thanks.. LMMJ

Re: What herbs should I plant and when?

Message from John Wicks

In forum: New to gardening

It depends entirely on what you like to eat. But different herbs like different conditions. Some of my favourites like sage, thyme, rosemary are Mediterranean and like well drained soil in sun. Lay sage leaves on a mackerel fillet, drizzle with a little oil, wrap in streaky bacon and bung it in the oven for about 10 minutes. Delicious. Mint likes it moister, I pick it when it is young and make mint sauce which I then freeze into ice cubes and use as needed; I also make mint and apple jelly. Mint tea is good too. Chives don't seem too fussy about soil and position and are pretty in the flower border (their flowers are edible) and go well in a potato salad. They are a good companion plant as they deter greenfly. Golden oregano - good on pizzas - also attracts beneficial insects, as does borage. Its flowers taste of cucumber - find recipes at http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/borage. Dill attracts good insects like hoverflies and is good in pickles (I add some to my pickled courgettes). There is plenty to choose from. Just do it!

Re: I have one and want to get more

Message from Garden Designer

In forum: Diascia 'Little Dreamer'

Hi Jill,

Thanks for your forum message. I am afraid that we no longer have market place on the site but perhaps someone from our community will be able to tell you where you could get more of the same plant. Or if you wish, you could add Diascia 'Little Dreamer' to your plant list and get notes on how to propagate it.

If you would like to watch a video on how to add plants and see what else you can do, please watch this short video.

I hope that helps, Tania from Shoot

It looks like regular culinary sage (Salvia) to me. Are the leaves like the herb sage?

Trellis spacers

Question from Glensgirl

In forum: General

Hello everyone
Does anyone have any tips on the best spacers to use behind trellis to keep them away from the wall to allow air passage? I've purchased Gardman trellis spacers in the past but they're difficult to find now and P&P on websites is way to high for a packet that only costs a couple of pounds in the first place. What do professional gardeners use I wonder - I can't image they spend money or time searching for little plastic spacers and wondered whether there is a long tubing available that can be cut to requirement?
Any ideas?
thanks!

Re: Pineapple sage

Message from Inez Hardie

In forum: Salvia elegans

I read that it was frost hardy so I've kept mine inside at the moment. Have you tried propagating it? I wondered how successful that'd be as I don't want to lose it. I also have a tangerine sage which I'm keeping indoors at the moment and would like to propagate it too so's I have a back-up if the mother plant dies... has anyone any ideas of best time to do this?

Re: Re: Stunning flowering trailer from the Azores (and the Med)

Message from Timdavies

In forum: Identify a plant

Thanks for the suggestion. I don't think it's that because it is a trailer with no means of climbing and the leaves themselves are succulent.
I will try to find some more pictures, but the leaves are in a sort of chain-linked, sausage-like format and trail down with no visible means of attachment to the wall.

That looks like a variety of sage to me - Salvia - with a golden hue if your photograph is showing the true colour.
