Thank you. Will pick a load up this week.

I have been offered a quantity of horse manure which is mixed with wood chippings and shavings rather than straw,I have been told not to use this as it takes the nitrogen from the soil to break down the wood. Is this correct please?

Identify please

 Not sure what's happening but it's upside down. Can anyone tell me the name of this plant please? It sits happily outside in a pot all year round on a south facing wall.

thanks

I guess they can stay then. I certainly wouldn't want to kill them.

Thanks Busy-Lizzie, but I think I'll let the little fellas live.

Thank you for the advice, looking forward to next year now to see the fruits (flowers) of my labour.

I have attempted to train some standard fuscia for the first time, I must say they are looking very good. I have not let them flower this year as the books say, but come the cold season do I cut them back or not?

thanks in anticipation

Hi all, can you tell me why when taking cuttings we are told to place them at the edge of a terracotta pot then cover with a plastic bag? I find every time I do this the remaining leaves  rot.

Thanks
