    The arrival of Storm Hector during the week left many gardens damaged and this week Paraic advised on the best approach to bring flowering plants in particular back to full bloom. The Chelsea Chop technique was featured as a way of trimming back to maintain flowering and balance plants that are tall and top heavy. There was also advice on pruning and sealing damaged branches, sowing new lawns and treatment for Mare's Tail and Japanese Knotweed. Plants for graves were featured along with strawberries, sunflowers, sweet potatoes, echinacea and red penstomones. Questions this week included moving Rhodedendrons, sowing New Zealand Flax from seed, cutting back Montana Clematis and sowing Persian Roses for sloping banks.
