I wish we lived closer, wakeshine - I have a massive problem with cowslips seeding into a gravel drive!

Sad hydrangea :-(

When you say you've given them fertilizer, you don't mean you've put dry concentrate in direct contact with their roots, do you?


And do their containers have good drainage?


Verdun, you beat me to the second question!

Whats happened to my sunflowers?

Hmmm. Well, they look as though the head has just folded over from the picture, which would be lack of water pressure. Various obvious reasons for that which I'm sure you already know, but still:


is the soil over-dry, causing them to wilt? Is it soaking wet, so roots have rotted?


Less obvious, perhaps - have you checked all ties, so the stem isn't being cut into anywhere?


have you checked around the base of the stem for signs of slug damage? As with clematis, they can eat around the stem and kill it.

It's somniferum, as ladybird says. Often found in a pale purple colour, too.

'Has anyone noticed the big difference in the drawn designs? The Rich brothers drawings are quite dark whereas Charlie uses a lot of bright green and light brown. Do you think that makes a difference to their 'saleability'??

See original post

 The opening ssections of the programme seem to suggest that Charlie's designs are hand-painted, whereas the brothers' are computer-drawn, which might be a  reason?

It's the sort that you buy edible seed from to cook with. One big flower and then it'll be over and die, but will happily leave seeds behind.

You could try one part milk (not skimmed) in 20 parts water, and sprayed every 5 days until clear.
