Thanks for you help, guys

Indoor azaleas

Posted: 23/05/2015 at 16:01

I've got an indoor azalea that  finished flowering a few weeks ago - and was lovely I may add.  I'm not sure what to feed it with now though, also  when and how often. Some of the leaves are turning reddy brown and dropping off, so it's obviously hungry, but what it the best thing to give it? I top-dressed with ericaceous compost, but I think it needs more than that. What about a foliar spray, but if so, which one?

I often get plants from Morrisons - at least you can see what you are getting. Also Lidl aren't bad on the odd occasion they have them.

I planted a little gooseberry last year, and it even gave me a berry, which was sweet enough to eat raw. I'm hoping for a few more this year, but it's still a young plant. It's a red variety.

Aquilegia are pretty flowers. They do cross pollinate so wait and see what colours you get. And they will self-seed, so pull up what you don't want.

The violets are lovely this time of year, and I like the leaf shape too. I encourage them in my garden - they are so small and dainty anyway, and don't take up much space.

Does anyone know when...

Tonight- yay!!!

When do I repot please?

The bottom ones have got too straggly. You might be able to save them by pricking out but planting the bendy stem deep with the leaves poking out about 1 cm about the level of the compost. This sometimes works. If not, get more seed and start again.

Good luck!

You should really plant them somewhere permanent from the outset. They are not meant to be lifted and replanted. You should put them somewhere they can naturalise in beds, borders, or grass and just leave them alone. Pots are fine too as long as you are prepared to leave the leaves on until they have completely died back. They need the leaves to feed the bulb to produce flowers for the following year, so don't tie them up or cut them off or you wont get any flowers.

I'm growing no. 6 as a houseplant, but have no idea what it is.
