It wouldn't hurt dale.
Last picture are annual poppies.
I've planted over 50 this week in a clients garden, the greenhouse was complaining it was too full. I'm knackered .
Lantana, yes you can, although a good prune would be more effective. Tootles, yes black spot will weaken a rose so good hygiene, feeding and watering is essential to overall health.
These companies use the same stuff that's available off the shelf. They use nothing special. A weed and feed and basic lawn care will give you the same results as they achieve. They rely on people's laziness and lack of knowledge for business. I've never seen them spike or add grit for drainage or do anything other than scatter some chemicals about.
Well its Yew so it should recover. I'd keep it well watered for a few weeks and see how it goes. It's probably objected to the haircut, but it's highly unlikely to die on you.
Dave, after flowering, they recover really well so you can be as hard as you like.
Depends on how long you you want to keep them in the pot. They'll grow quite quickly to fit the pot. Although they're clump forming they'll clump to the available space. So as large as you want them to go.
Well I use android and Google chrome. I also use a generic pad. I still can't upload 1.6mb photo for an ID from my documents on the pad.
You have a touch of black spot, whitefly and a frog hopper. Pick off the affected leaves, spray the whole plant and ground around the plant with a fungicide (rose clear), feed and mulch and it will solve all of those problems in one go.
