Wrong plants sent by mail order

Posted: 17/02/2015 at 20:21

I have geranium splish splash i mine do look like the photos and arnt pink. They must have sent the wrong plant.

I remember last year i accidently snapped one of the shoots off and i threw the shoot in a old pot outside that i had not yet replaced the soil in and the shoot rooted by itself and i used it as a plant. Very east to root from cuttings. I normally just divide the tubers or grow from seed as others have said as they are so easy.

Nasturtium leaves yellowing

I have grown nasturtium in a container and the leave are yellowing and look anaemic. I have some growing in the ground and they are very lush and green. I used two thirds old compost in the container as I read too much nutrients reduces the flowering of the plants however I am wondering if perhaps they are deficient in nutrients. I never water the container now as again I read this causes lots of foliage and no flowers however we have had a lot of rain lately. Should I feed them and what with?

I just spray sodium bicarb and washing up liquid on the leaves and it seems to be keeping it at bay
