Can you give me some advice on Passion Flowers?

Posted: 18/03/2015 at 15:54

Hi Emma, Passion flowers seem to grow best in rubbish conditions I dont know why,I had in different gardens great success by treating them like Roses, some I let grow almost wild and some I chopped completely back to the ground, all came back with avengeance, the fruit was sweet and always looked good, I never fed or molly coddled them but  I,v planted one last year on a pyramid and this year im going to feed and hopefully get cuttings to train up a wall and use it as a base grower for other climbers as the passion is so strong, go4it give it a good crew cut. 

nettle fertilizer

       Is Nettle Fertilizer Suitable for All Vegetables?

 Nettle feed is a rich fertilizer, and helps to promote all aspects of growth. Nettles are nitrogen-rich plants, but the fertilizer acts as a good all-round general fertilizer too. In particular, nettle feed will also benefit dark green, leafy plants such as brassicas. So it’s fair to say that generally, many plants will benefit in some capacity from a dose of nettle feed. But it’s also fair to say that different plants will thrive on different amounts of NPK, depending on their growing requirements.So check what is best for your requirements Nettles ,or Comfry as Bob says they are all good,one of the reasons is they are very deep rooted plants and get to nutrients that lots of others dont get to  Seaweed tea is also very good, Good luck

Fruit tree pruning

Posted: 03/03/2015 at 11:18

Ellie ,just to add to the bad news ,before you decide just check how the full leafed tree might effect the greenhouse for light etc,maybe this was the reason for the dismemberment that Dove talked about, also removing and planting new might be good,  left in cut off trunks can make nice features for birdbaths etc if a  full dig is too much at this time. good luck Ell  Suns about to show erein Muns Hopfully

Can my dying rhododendron be saved?

Posted: 01/03/2015 at 15:56

Lena N rather than sling it why not cut it back and give it a chance to recover, cant hurt it and you might get lucky,as Verdun says you might have to cross more than fingers but sometimes it works nothing to lose, if or when it does get dry enough to need water give it a crushed  aspirin. B Lucky,
