Petition to stop cancelling GW

Posted: 14/04/2016 at 16:43

To all my friends on this wonderful forum, please consider signing the below petition to ask the BBC to stop cancelling GW in favour of other programmes. Gardening is a passion for many more people than some of the sporting events being televised.

I've been in client gardens all week and the number of ladybirds out sunning themselves is more than ive seen in quite a few years. Hopefully no greenfly this year.

That's why I said big rootball Verdun. If I move one I use a garden fork. I like bowles mauve but I'm not a huge fan myself, although I grow them for clients.

Goldsturm is hardy as long as the drainage is good peanuts.

Munstead grows well from seed if you can wait. Sown now a viable plant by the Autumn.

Regarding Dahlia Tubers...

You could but I wouldn't. Dahlias are gross feeders they love lots of food, so a 12 inch pot can only really cope with one plant at a time. Dahlias will put on more and more tubers each year and putting both in one pot means they'll intertwine so you won't know which is which. It may make for an interesting display but I'd keep em separate.

Plant Id please

If they're hardy fuchsia they'll take a bit of root pruning. Just cut back hard after moving feed and mulch.

Quarkrad use a sharp spade and chop down vertically to cut the lateral roots first. Then cut in at 30 degrees to get under the main stem and chop them out. Using anything else is grass suicide.
