can anyone suggest a suitable houseplant which would flourish in an office which has one window, but doesn't have any direct sunlight. Something flowering if possible.

Does anyone out there have one? Mine is in a pot, has rust, mildew and is slowly being eaten...should I start again or is it salvageable?

Hello all....am thinking about planting some honesty....as far as I can see (on the internet) the seeds are more readily available than plugs.  Are there any enthusiasts out there who can advise me about which ones to buy...am looking for a hardy annual variety which could produce the dried discs in the autumn...any advice would much appreciated.

Encourage hedgehogs into your garden....until a few years ago all my tender shoots were being nibbled to nothing then m. Hedgehog moved in and hoovered up the lot...I put out a handful of peanuts for him/her at dusk NB to deter birds from taking for baby food (choking hazard) and in the morning the pile had been hoovered up....if you have aquiet corner you could provide a small house for it....if it becomes a resident, could breed and then you have your own army to pursue slugs to an early death on a regular basis....

Oh dear, not only have I pruned (was trying to encourage tree shape) but have also been feeding with psychedelic blue miracle grow.....oops. Will be interested to see how yours fare, Bob. Incidentally, have read that they don't like to be moved.... All a bit precious, it seems.

 

Rose Pruning

I grow rosa rugosa....they are extremely hardy and I usually prune quite late ie around feb/march time....but it's best to refer to the rhs website for specific breeds and their numerous idiosyncrasies.
