Fairygirl, it just seems to me the GW team have been unable to solve these issues and glitches. If that is the case maybe they should hand over to a team of experts who can solve them instead of leaving so many people hanging in the air. This forum, it's systems although not ideal worked prior the new design. It is surely not beyond the wit of the team to seek professional help when it's needed. To ask the users to resize, download, update, clear cache's etc is a cop out. They broke it they should fix it. Or they trying to be too clever for their own good. If I screwed up in a clients garden I'd be responsible for fixing it not the client which seems to be there attitude.

Yeah from about £6 to £54 a bottle. Only a fool would pay that. Nematodes are cheaper.

I still can't upload a picture and to be honest the response from the GW team hasn't addressed it one jot. Instead of sorting it I'm asked to do all the work to try and solve it myself. Well I've done what they said and it still doesn't work. P****d off doesn't come close.

Cambridgerose I think you got what you ordered as that's not Johnson's blue. Johnson's blue has rounder slightly hairy leaves. 

Plant name?

Personally I wouldn't move them Danielle, especially if they're growing well. You'll just have to train your OH better for next year.

Problem with Honeysuckle

Suzyq, well it's in full sun, they're woodland plants, so do better with partial shade, and I'll bet its dry at the roots. I'd move it personally to a semi shaded position and keep it well watered till well into Autumn. Next year keep it well watered as they do need plenty of moisture at the roots. They're tough old things so it'll do a lot better for a move.

plug plants

Michael, T&M send out plugs raised in hothouses with bottom heat and misting systems. Invariably they have poor root systems as they rush to fill orders. The best way is to pot into 9cm pots any compost will do, water from underneath and keep them sheltered in semi shade or shaded GH. Plugs take 6-8 weeks to form a decent root system especially perennials, which are slower growing than the annual plugs sold. Feed them with a liquid seaweed food which I've found gives a good root system in a reasonable period. Once the roots fill the pot they can go out. I don't know what you've got but T&M usually flog the easy stuff so they'll establish before winter comes. Don't over water, that's the usual cause of plug death and never from above. A tip as to when to water is the weight of the pot. Lighter it is means watering so they can dry out quite a bit before watering.

Yann, a mower won't cut long grass. It needs to be strimmed or scythed down to a few inches before using a mower.
