Honeysuckle - Grow It Thick And Bushy on Wires Only??

Posted: 24/08/2015 at 10:28

Why don't you buy a secondhand book, or a cheap one from Amazon, about gardening? Then you will be fore-armed with knowledge for next year.

The reason ivy pops up in my garden where I don't want it is because I live in a woodland clearing and ivy grows in the woods. The birds eat the berries and drop the seeds in my garden.

HELLO FORKERS!

Not eating much this evening. The family were here for lunch, had BBQ pork in honey marinade, various salads, chips, then bread and cheese (French have cheese before pud) then lemon meringue pie that I made and chocolate mousse that daughter made.

Hard to tell from the photos, but to me they look a lot smaller than that!

On the top of this page is a place that says "search this site" with a magnifying glass sign. Type in "birthday", click on the sign and it will take you to a search page. I think it's "It's my birthday".

Found it http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/its-my-birthday/455545-42.html  but saw you'd already found it.

Try feeding it in the spring and watering when the weather is dry, it may flower. Will need pruning too. They often don't flower for several years when young.

August replanting in terrace pot

Trailing lobelia sometimes fizzles out, especially in full sun. The fuchsia and petunias should last longer. Last year some of my petunias got straggly so I cut them back, gave them a feed and they re-grew. If they really aren't any good then see if there is anything in the garden centre.

That is what I think as well. Mine are in the ground, have been fed and regularly watered, they are huge. I don't think those pots are big enough either.

I've really tried to take photos of birds on the feeders and never managed it, they all fly away.

This is the sky last night preparing for the storms we had in the night. It had been blue sky 32°.
