wot to do now

Posted: 16/11/2014 at 13:16

Hi all ,this was a rescue plant when we moved here,I think its a Yucca of some kind and was in the rubbish bit, I replanted the larger one and the two smaller ones came,now its looking healthier and is a fairly strong grower i think the pot might be too small for three, So wot to do, wait till summer and split or do it now , or leave for a year or so i don't know ?

 excuse yellow leaf its one of my figs just come in from the cold ready for winter,Cheers miserable cold rain erein Muns Nor  Norfolk

Annietts ,also stay away from passion flower beautiful but a real strong heavy grower,Clematis is worth looking at but watch for the fast growers like Montana also beautiful and very strong ,im sure someone will give you a few names ,good luck

Jan you might want to give a handful of fish blood and bone in March April as the trees awake ,and then a little potash watered in then as it responds a really good watering of a handful of  Potash this should have a really good effect on the fruiting carry on feeding till around just before they start to think of going into fall ,if you use comfrey a little at every feed is good also, and of course i hope your trees are all  getting Pollinated properly ,good luck.

Winnie if the worms are collecting on your bin lid the compost needs drying a little untill they stop collecting there they dont happily collect on the lid look on utube its been shown many times, nothing too serious but needs looking at  ,,some dry cardboard perhaps to help dry it a touch , im only passing this info on as iv recently had this happen to me and many of my alottmenteer friends all solved by dring a touch,cheers.good luck.

I had to do something very similar and i was fuming so I went to my local MP at the time Ken Clark, within 10 days I had a letter offering better service and totally different from the first offer , and a letter from Ken stating what he had done for me ,Go for it and make them sit up, its my tax money iv paid over all my working years and i didn't pay it to be thrown away by numskulls in situations like yours KT,not to mention the messing about you went through its bl,,dy disgusting.
