Hi Ally5 if you cut right back passed the present years growth the flowers wont come back in that year ,dont worry this renewed growth will give strong stems and leaf,next flowering season give it good potash feeds ,and dont forget they are very thirsty shallow rooted plants,

i think if you stand still long enough they will eat your shoes,Kates just filled a bed with violas and forgot to slug pellet it and they are 90% gone in one night,i just had to laugh or i would have cried, she did it as a nice surprise for the people moving in soon, slugs have no feelings at all the swines

watering cactus

Posted: 13/09/2013 at 11:42
Hi Sue,i think it was brum quite a while ago whose uncle grows cacti, told me the secret of it is drainage has to be really really good , well water once a week so the cacti takes what it needs and lets the rest drain away from the roots, again iv fed on Nettle tea and my fire barrel has doubled in size this year,next year as it getting quite large now im going for comfry tea for more potash hoping it will turn red and flower maybe ? anyway its in great condition ,October i start to water only once a month and do as everybody else says good luck
