Clematis newbie question

Posted: 06/06/2013 at 21:27

looking at the size of your trellis I would buy two one for each side of the house but get the ones what only grow 2 metres high that way it will cover both sides of the trellis and not cover the full front of your house as some clematis will.This way a large pot either side of the trellis will do as long as you feed it.

best to get a evergreen and a group 1.

wisteria

Well it look likes my wisteria has crown gall.

Not sure if I am right but after searching on the internet this seems to hit the problem on the head.

anyone had this problem, and do I have to take my wisteria out and bin it?

 

 

what a load of crap

Posted: 29/05/2013 at 19:31

Purchased a couple of bags of bq verve compost (125lt) and what a load of rubbish.

found large pieces of plastic in it and bit of metal which look like bent nails.

I have sent bq an email about this issue but still no reply.

Why is it that these days compost is not what it used to be.

I got some arthur bowers compost last week and this was very poor.

 

 

lidl

Just been to lidl and got some lupins for £3 each and these plants are in 18cm pots,I also got some snow ladys for the same price.

What a bargain.

I keep saying  I am not buying any more as I have purchased over 600 plants this season but as the weather is still crap I have had some great bargains.

B&Q M.Purpose Compost Issues.

My mother and I bought Growmore compost from Homebase this year, this too is questionable. Mother topped  up her raised beds, it started to rain heavily so came inside. Two days of rain before a revisit to the beds. Full of seedlings, weeds. A week later and her peat pots were growing fungi, pushing her expensive seeds out of the pot. Mine grew moss within a week of transplanting my stock. the compost was very fibrous, and looked more like bark chippings than compost. What's going on?  When revisiting the garden centre at Homebase, many bags have been split with compost being dragged out of the bag, none even remotely resembled the compost of old. Is any manufacturer still making traditional compost,  or is this a sign of things to come?


I had the same problem with growmore compost a couple of years ago and did compain and was told told to post the seedling to headoffice and I got the results back a couple of weeks later and was told the seedling were wheat.

This is all what was said and was not given a refund or anything else.  

Unusual request

why not do it the old fashion way using wood and putty.

this would be the cheapest way.

Try this link.

you will also need to think about drainage,will the water drain away easy if you leave the slabs in the ground.

Perennial Foxglove?????

I too have had a few issues with T&M  and I am still waiting for a reply off a email I sent two weeks ago.

I have spent a couple of hundred pound with them and I am not using them again.

The plants and shrubs I have ordered are all small and very poor.

I ordered a tree peony and it was broke this was back in march and am still waiting for a replacment,I am also waiting for dhalias which I was told would be delivered in march.

I now use jparkers and I must say the plants are a lot better.
