ordering plants online

Be careful where U order from

I have ordered off Thompson and Morgan and parkers and have problems with the size of the plants.

Do not use the above unless you want to repot them on for a month or two.

A new nursery has just opened down the road from where I live and it has some great mature plants which I am well happy with.

No more on line ordering for me.

Which? Compost reviews

Miracle grow potting compost.

Just got 4 bags and it is good stuff, but at £20.00 for the four and only 40lt bags a bit expensive.

My local BQ is closing half of the store and has great bargains on sale.

BQ verve compost reduced from £4.49 to £2.00, I do not like this compost but going to put it on the garden.

Trellis all reduced after I paid over £100.00 a few months ago.

It will be interesting to see what else is going to get reduced.

No need to be sown under glass indoors, only take a few months to flower.

Should be in flower about June.

White allssum will grow anywhere.

Sow them late march

These will flower.

Throw the ones you have out if leggy.

I dumped all my heavy clay at the local tip.

If left it will only cause problems every time it rains.

Heavy frosts will also break it up, you could try to dig it all over leaving the lumps and the frost will break it up.

I have had the same problem with parts of the garden as my house is a new build.

Large rocks, clay and everything else was buried in my garden and what I did was clear the lot out hundreds of bags of clay and large pieces of rubble.

Top soil, compost ( 20 x 75 litre bags ) soil conditioner  were all added and now my soil is perfect.

This was not a job just for the weekend it took me weeks to do it and the area I did was 32 feet long by 6 feet wide.

You may need to check the soil what the lawn is on as well.
