At that size Laura I'd use cell trays, cheap as chips from wilko.

It's obviously doing okay Ceres, as long as you keep feeding and watering and it does well then why not.

I'd say you can start Laura. Still a few small ones but I'd make a start the others will catch up.

Rose advise

Posted: 15/04/2016 at 10:07

Hybrid teas are better planted than potted Sandra. If it's containerised it can stay there till you plan to plant it. Best position for any rose is full sun, and planting is fairly simple, big hole add some bonemeal, well rotted manure or homemade compost, sprinkle the rootball with rootgrow and plant with the union below the level of the soil. Fill in the hole and leave a depression around the plant and water with a full 2 gallon watering can. Water every 2 weeks till it's established. Keep it well watered in the summer as well. It'll flower well this year but even better in subsequent years. Oh forgot mulch it after planting.

The ones I planted last year threw up a single stem. This spring, three stems from each area. Looking forward to the scent and display.

Weed problem: Alkanet

Posted: 14/04/2016 at 19:28

To be honest rottijim roundup is very effective with alkanet, one application and its gone especially now. It won't totally disappear, the seeds hang around for ages and germinate throughout the year. But of its a serious issue and it is in one garden I look after its the best way.

Snails in pond

Snails will find a pond like birds find food. They're good for the health of a pond and it shows you have a healthy one.

Dove don't mind at all. I had a hell of a time copying it in the first place. Thanks to all that have signed so far, more the merrier, so please support it. We all moan when it's cancelled so let's do something about it.
