Planting pot plants now
We have been working on our garden over the last few years, we've built a garage/office, changed our driveway entrance and pretty much removed all plants from the garden except a large Japanese Acer and a mature hawthorn tree.
i also have a number of plants that I 'saved' in the demolitio, that are all in pots.
I've been unable to plant anything as we were waiting for the heavy work to be complete (new patio, fences etc.) and it is finally all coming together this week.
I am so eager to plant my plants out, but concerned about the time of year And would really appreciate some tips.
the plants I have include:
- stipia gigantia
- lots of sedum
- lots of verbena bonaris
- 2 mature rosemary plants
- rock rose
- lots of hostas
- a large fern
- a few hyrangeas
I was hoping to plant these out, dividing the larger plants and then fill the gaps either this year or next year.
I'm planning on 2 large borders where I would like to have lots of grasses and flowing flowers. I am also having a staggered raised bed at the back of the garden and planting 2 silver birch trees (jacquimontii) and under p with the hostas and ferns.
I've read that moving grasses is bad in autum, but is it best to keep in a pot where it could be more liable to the cold?
many thanks for any tips in advance.
