30. Bed time for the Kniphofia Uvaria (Red Hot Poker) (Kniphofia uvaria (Red Hot Poker))

7.12.09 Each year after they flower I cut back dead leaves, cut the others back to 12" and tie up to keep the frost out over the winter. The Feverfew "Batchelors Buttons" doesn't worry about season. It is a cheery little "weed" really. Seems to be ever present and I just weed it out of inappropriate situations.

Thanks TT It is as much for my benetit as for other members really. It is as good as a calendar for refreshing my memory. Is there a way to put this in to the garden section at the same time as I post here. I do not have time to repeat everything.

You can cut and paste information, such as the paragraph above, which would save your keying it all in again...

Its the photos that take the time as I have to go looking for them. I was just hoping for an easy life. Thank you anyway.

You can add the plant to your garden, then when you load the pic, you can just link it to that plant in your garden, and it will populate the species and the link and add the photo to your garden section photos of that plant. That the easiest way I know of. Seems the garden features the most recent pic as you add and link them.

I love these tidy packets. Great idea keeping them safe.
