hi becky it helped me to upgrade to Windows 8 using the link above then my pics uploaded better and each pic has to be less than 1MB x
I think it may be a house plant, hippeastrum or nerine, is it a large bulb?
Hi Denise Major, pelleted chicken manure easy to get hold of in garden centres and B&Q, Homebase etc about £7 for large tub whixk lasts for a couples of years though i am quite generous in the spring around everything!
i set slug and snail traps full of beer and once a week empty them in the drain and hose them down granted its a bit messy otherwise i cut slugs in half and stamp on snails then leave them for birds and others to eat
I have Mrs Bradshaw which i planted two of last year they hardly flowered last year-probably putting roots down-this year they have been non-stop i cut them hard in winter/spring to tidy up the dead tops but otherwise just a sprinkling of pelleted chicken manure
Hi, I did chat to lady she said it was hardy and would do well in our slightly shady border did cut it back last year and will do this to keep it in bounds the border is around 8" wide and the fence is 6" i have just been re-arranging some of its companions to give a bit of room summer/autumn colour is beautiful especially when sun shining on it have monarda and lambs ears in front and crocosmia behind thanks
it hasn't flowered so I can't be certain but definately looks like the physocarpus and i didn't realise how big it gets oops hubby will be livid he's taken two weeks hols from wednesday lunchtime and we already took two trees out!
i blame the arctic snow melting so fast!
now i can i thought i'd share a pic anyone got any more b interested to look at good companions
