Hydrangeas - In the spring cut off a few branches 6 inches down, take off the bottom 2 leaves and dip the end in root stimulator, then plant in pot with high quality garden soil. Ta Da, you will have a new hydrangea bush by the end of summer.
Hydrangea Pruning - Very good info on how to prune and when to prune and if to prune. There exists a small group of mophead hydrangea that will bloom no matter when they are pruned. ('Endless Summer' is this type of hydrangea). But for the vast majority of hydrangeas, pruning after July will likely result in fewer blooms the next summer.

*GERMAN CHAMOMILE* The flowers are used as a nervine tonic. Also anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving for a wide range of conditions along the digestive tract.

As well as being an ideal beverage for those of us that wish to avoid caffeine, herb teas can offer health benefits from aiding digestion to helping bring relaxation making it easier to sleep. We already stock a good selection of herb teas which include Rooibos and Raspberry Leaf tea, you can also try some of the most popular tea herbs this winter and make use of their delicious herbal benefits.
The word chamomile comes from the Greek language, chamos (ground) and melos (apple), referring to the fact that the plant grows low to the ground, and has an apple scent. However, Roman chamomile is low growing, and is used for lawns in England. But German chamomile can grow to 2.5 feet. German chamomile is an annual plant, and likes full sun to part shade. And is perfect for pots. The fragrant flowers of the German chamomile will attract birds, bees and other wildlife. It prefers sandy well drained soils, and will require regular watering, but take care not to over water. Harvest the entire chamomile flower head once it blooms and dry it to make tea. Dead heading (harvesting) the chamomile flowers the day they bloom will provide the best-flavored tea, and will encourage more flowering. Chamomile is one of the most popular wild medicinal plants that can be eaten. It makes a relaxing tea that can help you sleep. It also does wonders for upset stomachs, helps with irritable bowel syndrome, calm frayed nerves, reduce muscle spasms, treat several skin condition, and it can also help with menstrual cramp pain. Research also suggests that it may lower cholesterol. To ingest all of the beneficial oils, steep the tea in a covered cup for 10 minutes. Although they taste quite different, you can also use the leaves. You can also use chamomile flowers in a hot bath!

Philadelphus species and cultivars are hardy plants that are easily grown. They do best in a position in full sun, partial shade, or in deciduous open woodland in moist well-drained soil. Planting in full sun will increase flower production. Lightly trim after flowering and thin any congested growth. Propagate from softwood cuttings taken in summer, or hardwood cuttings taken in autumn and winter.

'Walker's Low' catmint (Nepeta x faassenii 'Walker's Low'). Sweetly scented foliage and clear lavender flowers are trademarks, and it thrives in lean soil and sun. This "cat" grows to about 3 feet high and wide, and it's wise to give it that much space to spread. Catmint (Nepeta, USDA zones 3 to 9) is another fast-growing, easy-to-propagate plant that mimics lavender's growth habit and style.

'Walker's Low' catmint (Nepeta x faassenii 'Walker's Low', zones 4 to 8). A weed-smothering ground cover. Sweetly scented foliage and clear lavender flowers are trademarks, and it thrives in lean soil and sun. This "cat" grows to about 3 feet high and wide, and it's wise to give it that much space to spread out, because it may shade out other, less competitive plants.
If it's fragrance you're after, look no further than soda-scented 'Walker's Low' catmint (Nepeta x faassenii 'Walker's Low', zones 4 to 8). Brushing its foliage releases a lovely bouquet into the air, and it blooms lavender early to midsummer.

This cool cat thrives in sun and lean, dry soil, and you'll be surprised at how far one small clump will stretch. It divides easily in spring if you find you'd like to help it along.

Euphorbia Polychroma 'Midas' A compact mound of mid green foliage bears bright yellow flowers and bracts from spring. In autumn the foliage is tinged red. Cut the flowered stems down to ground level after they have flowered, in late summer or early autumn. The simplest way to propagate this plant is by division. This should be done in late summer to early autumn once it has finished flowering. Generally pest and disease-free. Yay!
