Care of giant sunflowers

General post from rita broadhead

Hi could anyone advise me if giant sunflowers need pruning? I have grown 9 in pots and they are at various heights. They've all got heads now but some of the larger ones have developed new shoots and have additional flowers growing. Should any of the shoots or heads be removed please? Thank you.

Sedum Coral Reef

Question from Phil Mepham

I have the above but it has grown with a flat, thin middle that almost looks like someone has trodden on it. As a consequence, it look thin and 'leggy'. Can I/ Should I cut it back or will it revive itself?

Can anyone identify this plant please

Question from Rick

This plant is couple of meters tall, although there are others which are shorter. There seem to be pink bracts with tiny purple flowers. Smells a bit garlicky or something similar.

Distreesed sneezewort

Question from Ron Dawes

I have a number of Achiilea 'Double Diamond, grown from seed and planted out this spring into a border. Two of the plants have grown very quickly and become 'leggy'. They have now topped over exhibiting classic water shortage. They did pick up slightly after heavy rain last week but reverted to the drooping look within 24 hours. I have tried trickle watering overnight to no avail. The other plants seem OK but they in a slightly more shaded position. Any ideas?

Clematis Winter Beauty

Question from Di Bennett

Hi! How early can I plant out what arrived as 7cm plug plants in the spring, and which I have been nurturing indoors? Instructions say ' Autumn', but I'd like to try earlier, if feasible. Will be going into a large garden planter, trained on an obelisk against a sheltered (but sunny) brick wall facing south-east. Any ideas? Thanks!
