Morning all from erein Sunny Norfolk, its a cracker of a day, right iv just come from the rhubarb topic which as often does turned to booze, knowing u lot i was,nt a bit surprised, now im following so i can decide which rhubarb to start as we hav,nt any at all, so following that one and probly get some at weekend,with a thought to crumble and wine maybe,now do you think we could have a wine making topic for the complete beginner by people who have actually done it not a book but real peoples recipes like Dove put up , i personally will need cider as weve planted 5 new deserts and a cooker,a plum and rhubarb should be ok in 2 to 3 years i hope any recipes and advise will be really welcome wotuthink  Alan

Attacking pampas

Posted: 23/02/2014 at 14:21

HI i got the RHS    

  • Pampas grass grows well on a range of soil types but thrives in a fertile, well-drained soil in full sun.
  • After time the tussocks can become very large and congested with old, dead foliage.
  • Cutting back and combing regularly in late winter or spring should minimise the dead foliage and keep the tussock compact.
  • Because of its sharp leaf margins pampas grass was commonly burnt in its native habitat to control its spread, but in the garden burning can be dangerous not only for the gardener but because pampas grass is a favourite place for hedgehogs to hibernate.
  • Pests and diseases do not trouble Cortaderia selloana

Hi Logan, i have looked at how aluminium effects plants,i think u need to look yourself as the info says it can effect root growth,however the amounts needed seem to be obscure,i went to (effects of aluminium on plants) to me it looks a no,no,however we know its used on acid soils as a colouration for some plants, id use polystyrene myself broken into bits ,it works perfectly in pots or troughs and is used in packaging everywhere, hope this helps,
