Tulips in pots

Multi purpose is best. The comment above about it all being in the bulb is quite right. If you want them to replant for the year after that's when you need feeding.

Strangled my wisteria!

Tails can you post a pic from further back please. Plus take one of the strangulation point. This sort of mistake is easy enough to sort out but I'd need to see more first.

How to look after my potted honey suckle over the winter

If you have the space the best thing you can do is bury the pot in the ground. Honeysuckle are best grown in the ground rather than in post. They flower better and less likely to suffer from mildew and black spot.

No crocosmia are hardly and can be left out. Just cut back the dead foliage.

Winter protection

Oleander are hardy down to about minus 5 degrees, however they don't like cold winds which can cause as much if not more damage than frost. I'd take them in to a cold greenhouse or cool conservatory over winter. They won't need watering in general, there'll be some leaf loss but they'll bounce back in spring. Good drainage is essential as well. So get then under cover. 

A Point of View

I failed to appreciate his point of view. Toffs talking bo****ks again. If he wants to live in concrete jungle then let him. 

Poorly privet

Wouldn't worry too much plenty of bugs are attacking anything right now as food supplies are short before winter. Hopefully it'll freeze soon and kill them off. I'd wait till spring and assess the situation then and spray with a suitable fungicide and insecticide.

Oleander's Overwintering

Posted: 16/10/2015 at 15:50

Oleander are hardy down to minus 5 or thereabouts. They grow wild in Italy near the mountains but over here are only really summer plants. One of my clients has six all potted and we bring them in once temperatures start to go below freezing and keep them frost free over winter and unwatered till spring comes. So I'd do the same if you can. I'd wrap the pot and the plant if your'e forced to keep it outside.

I use these forecasters more accurate than most and certainly not the Daily Express!

Advice needed on brushcutters please...

Husqvarna do a small light 2 stroke brush cutter, it's very easy to use and inexpensive.
