Advice on small plant for our bathroom please?

Posted: 27/11/2013 at 20:53

Hi all

We would like a plant for our bathroom windowsill and have a small container (tiny french bucket) that we would like to plant it in. Can anyone recommend something fairly small, container is only about 6" x 6" so the plant would need to not grow much, it would need to put up with only a small amount of light and obviously condensation and heat that come with bathroom.

any suggestions peeps please?

I have had some box plant seeds growing in a container on my windowsill for 2 weeks and there are approx 5 shoots coming through, they just look like blades of grass at the moment, are these the actual box plant or weeds?  Any help would be great thanks.

Ok thanks all for your very helpful replies, the bullseye primer is something i will look into otherwise i will just sand the gate to get a key, then a coat each of undercoat and gloss to make sure the job is done properly.

I also will look into getting some clear decking oil for the tree slices.

cheers again all!

 My first question is about the log flooring as seen above.  I can get hold of some nice logs to replicate this effect in my front garden instead of boring paving but i need to know the best and cheapest way to protect the wood from the elements so it will last for many years please?  

my second question is regarding our garden gate, we installed a new gate last year and painted it with one coat stain and varnish, it is currently an oak colour but because we have now installed a nice new white picket fence we want to paint the gate white.  We have white undercoat and dulux gloss weathershield, will i actually need to undercoat or just use the gloss weathershield? Also will surface need to be sanded? The oak finish is actually still pretty perfect so can i just gloss straight on top?

Any help on these problems would be brilliant thanks Chaps!

Many thanks salino, so I take it that it is actually a totally different variety than common box?  I usually get my seeds from sellers on Ebay but strangely noone seems to have suffruticosa buxus??

I would like some evergreen box plant type plants to semi surround my patio area, but I only want something low maintenance and most importantly that only grow to around a foot high max. Are there any specific dwarf type varieties of box buxus plants or similar plants that you can recommend please? If you could give me the full names or nicknames for the variety that would be really helpful So I can shop around. Thanks!

PS. apologies for all the dashes in the Title, I have no idea as to why this happened!

Where are the seeds located on a poached egg plant?

Posted: 30/07/2013 at 15:28

Hi all

I was just looking at my potted poached egg plants flowers and they all seem to be dying off a little, losing their flowers.  I would like to collect some seeds to plant and grow next year but i am unsure where the seeds are, are they the petals? Or are they the 4 small ball things that are left in the flower head once the petals have dropped? Or... Are they actually inside these 4 ball thingies? Any help would be great thanks!
