Repotting new Christmas tree

Posted: 30/11/2013 at 16:12

I would leave it outside for as long as possible and put it outside again promptly after all the festivities are over. I have kept them going for a couple of years this way but I have never planted one in the garden. Good luck with yours!  

Please! Help!

LittleMiki a lawn needs proper drainage if it to not get flooded and mudded. There are different grasses for different uses.(i,e. bowling greens, paying fields etc)  I would google "how to lay a lawn for kids". U-tube can be great for advice. I think the idea of having a dog run is good. Gravel can get into small knees so I would think carefully about that. I do hope you find what you are looking for. 

Help needed to plant and screen off 5 metre garage next door

We had a similiar problem so I planted a conifer. The garage is now hidden from our view. I do hope you find a way forward with this issue as I know how these things can impact on your life.

Please! Help!

If you really want somewhere for the children to play and the dogs to run around perhaps a new lawn made up of a tough type of grass is the way forward. I would get advice about proper drainage for the lawn too.Hard landscaping could be incorporated into your design so you have somewhere to put a garden seat. Plants in pots are less likely to be dug up by dogs or trampled on by children. I will be interested in ideas from others and hope you get many replies. Good luck!

Is this year's compost alright for next year ?  I know you are not supposed to use left over compost the next season but perhaps unopened compost will be alright.

That's interesting Fairygirl. Perhaps it's common behaviour as Dave Morgan says they're loners by nature. You can't help feeling a little sad for them!

Perhaps he's not too unhappy then!   The other three seem like close buddies and are always together though.

A lone goldfish

Is anyone out there an expert on goldfish?  I have four goldfish in a small garden pond. For the last few weeks I have spotted the gold coloured one in a corner of the pond away from the other orange coloured ones. He does feed the flakes I give him but looks very lonely!  The other three are always together at the front of the pond waiting to be fed at their usual time. Do goldfish ostracize one another? .I know this is an odd question but there must be an answer to goldy's isolation! 

Agapanthus

The only way I got mine to flower was to feed it with a tomato feed. There are several varieties of Agapanthus and perhaps some perform better than others. I do know they like to be root bound. Good luck with yours
