Blocked Hose Pipe - Help!!

Posted: 13/08/2015 at 22:51

I would think the reason you got some bits and water out of the hose initially was because the coir had contracted by drying out. I would recommend that you let it dry out again (impossible in my part of the world at the moment!) and then instead of turning the water on shake the pipe to get the coir out. You may have to put something in the pipe like a bit of straightened out wire cat hanger with an eye at the top -  FIRMLY attached to good quality string so you can work out how far along the blockage is.

Enhancing a cemetery location

I am sorry for your loss.

A graveyard near me has placed sedum mats on the graves and it has created the most beautiful effect. Very low growing, different colours and flowering times - bulbs could also push through too.

Automated watering system

I would say the worst thing for any fruit/veg is excess - too wet then too dry or uneven watering. I would go with the morning/evening routine when take up is better and the supply therefore more even. I feel it is more easy to control than soil sensors - strikes me more things could go wrong...but maybe that's just me! 

Salix Flamingo

Lack of water  probably- salix are very thirsty plants. If the pot does not aready sit on a saucer then place one under the pot.

f you don't think this is the problem, remove the pot and look at the roots for damage, pot bound etc...

plant ID

Not sure that you can do it directly from a phone...one of the things that needs to change.

Upload to a computer and then click on the tree icon in the tool bar that appears when you write a reply and follow instructions.

Help needed!

Just found this thread....and caught up.

Never noticed the weather feature at the top of the page so have never used it. I use the bbc site for weather. Agree with the change of the tree icon to a camera one. Other than that don't have any problems on the site apart from the ones I create myself. eg. hitting the wrong button when in the middle of a long reply and losing the whole thing -very annoying!! 

Very White rose?

Posted: 11/08/2015 at 10:27

Iceberg - it is a very well known and popular rose for very good reasons - ease of care, good white colour, repeat flowering, disease resistance, comes in different forms....I love mine.
