Cuttings from laurels

Posted: 23/02/2014 at 12:08

Can I take Laurel cuttings cuttings now?

The reason I ask My conifer hedge is dying (I cut it back to hard) in the summer (late) as the council was working on the paths

plus conifer can't be used in the compost bin but I thought I would change my hedge if I need to by taking Laurel cuttings from the in-laws hedge


Help for flooded gardens

I would love to help out.

however I do have a question if I grow a lot of seeding's/ plants for you how would these get to the gardens your hoping to brighten up.

I would have thought it would cost you and us a lot in time and money to disperse these plant's I don't mind even coming down with a trailer and deliver my plants but where will I be going. I don't fancy driving 10hrs down to Cornwall and back with a trailer load of plants


Cost of the hobby of gardening per year?.

Posted: 17/02/2014 at 08:04

we eat a lot of peppers, tomatoes and basil

with the increase of prices I will be happy to grow 4lb of tomatoes this year and 10 red bell peppers as ten peppers will cost you £8.00 I shall also be growing basil to protect my toms from aphids

can you really put a price on a hobby that give so much back and not just veg crops what about mental state and piece of mind and exercise I just look at it that way. 


Have you sown any seeds yet this year?

no need yet ashleigh

you would be better to wait until you can repot to a bigger pot and use a MP compost for about 6 weeks than you can start to feed



Chicken manure - what should I do with it?

Posted: 10/02/2014 at 07:21

why not try to make a hot bed with it.

if you have a coldframe even better dig out about 10" and add the chicken manure to a depth of  6" and then add the soil back then place you pots seed trays back in, heat while it's rotting down.

I'm going to sow some summer bedding plants for my hanging baskets today 


I did think about sowing direct in the hanging baskets but I don't have room to hang 7 baskets indoors, also I've bought some plug plants this week (fuchsia delta Sarah) that need potting up


How often do you feed your Annuals?

I really think it's important to look at your compost in your pot when it comes to watering them some pots will need water because of location,plant and size of plant so they same can be said for the fertilizer what I do is use a coloured marker  and add that colour to my calendar

I found that dahlias are quite greedy on water in pots so I would assume they would need quite a lot of feed but different feeds at different growing times

not sure about the rest but I always add BF&B Tto my pots when I'm potting up and a sprinkle of grow more GP fertilizer
