What have I done?

Posted: 29/04/2014 at 21:03

Still cannot post my photo....very frustrating. Have never had the problem before. Have posted a query on Talkback. No luck with one suggestion given so far. I get as far as "Upload" and then it asks me to save. I had expected the usual "Insert"... will keep trying. (Still got Path: p at the bottom)

Uploading pictures

I've never had a problem uploading photos to the forum before - but can't get it to work this time. Would it have anything to do with the message which seems to be constantly at the bottom now: Path img. I've never noticed it before. How do I get rid of it?

Am trying to upload photo....don't usually have any problems, but it won't work at the moment. A web site problem? Or something "my end"?

Propagator & condensation

Posted: 28/04/2014 at 14:27
I sometimes do it with kitchen paper twice a day. If the problem is really bad (temp too high or soil too wet), try balancing a few pencils between the base and the lid. This will allow some condensation to escape without affecting the germination.

So why can the product only be used on plants in containers? My worry was that I would have contaminated the soil.....

Many of the leaves on one of my laurel bushes have holes in them - irregular shapes, not round and there has obviously been some chomping of the outside edges. After googling last night I decided it could be vine weevil. What did I do? In the dark? Rush out to the garage and prepare a litre of Provado vine weevil killer with which I watered the shrub. I know - very stupid. I realised this morning this product should only be used on plants in containers. I do hope someone will be able to assure me that I haven't done anything terrible. There is nothing planted very close to the laurel......

Replacing conifers with hedge

That makes absolute sense. I'll do that! Many thanks, fidget bones.

Replacing conifers with hedge

Posted: 10/04/2014 at 10:55
We have just had eight large conifers removed (they had probably been there 30 years and some were leaning dangerously after the recent Winter). We are going to replace them with a cotoneaster franchetii hedge. There is obviously a large amount of shredded conifer bits left. Can I use them as part of the planting preparation? I'm also thinking of bagging some to use in the Autumn as a mulch for heathers, pieris etc. What do people think?
