Echinacea, young plants

Question from Hilshils

Advice PLEASE: I have 4 new young echinacea plants, expensive so I don’t want to lose them! Do I plant them out in the border now? Or put in a larger pot and keep in the cold frame?

Oxeye Daisy - dividing

Question from Fiona Dean

The plant notes say divide and replant in August. I haven't wanted to do this as it is still flowering. There are still a few new blooms to open up and I had planned to wait until these were all done as I like to help the insects for as much and as long as possible. Can I do the division in, say, another couple of weeks' time? I probably won't replant many, just cull, because they have gone mad and I'm finding all the dead-heading too much of a chore! They look fantastic but I want fewer of them!

Salvia gregii Icing Sugar - taking cuttings

Question from Fiona Dean

My sister-in-law was here on Monday and loved this. She asked for cuttings in spring. On checking the care for this plant it says cuttings should be taken in August. Is that because it flowers into early autumn? (It's still got loads of blooms on it, I live in the Midlands of the UK), south-facing garden.)

What would be the result of taking cuttings now? Should I wait until after it has finished flowering?

Wisteria leaves wilting

Question from NICOLA BLYTH

My recently planted wisteria (June 2020) has been romping away but over the last 2 weeks I have noticed some leaves are curling, dry and dying. I thought it might be because it wasn't reveiving enough water so have been watering everyday to no avail. Can anyone advise?
Thank you in advance

What to Mulch with

Comment from David

I went up to my allotment today to collect my compost I’ve made and its been contaminated with bindweed. (So I’m not using this) My question is what’s the best to mulch my flower beds with this year?

Seeds for bees

Comment from Jan Helle

I received a packet of seeds for bees and duly sprinkled them into a very large pot and an area at the bottom of the garden. To my chagrin, I recognised none of the plants, so help would be much apprecitaed
