Why have my rosemary cuttings died?

Posted: 06/04/2015 at 08:39

If the Rosemary cuttings had their roots frozen in the pot they would not survive. I put my cutting in my greenhouse and I am happy to say that it did survive. Have you a porch or somewhere frost free to keep the cuttings another time? They will survive in the soil in a mild winter but it is a risk. Pots will always be vulnerable and I have lost cuttings leaving them outside.

I have raked up a lot of moss from my lawn and wondered whether the moss would be OK to be put on  my compost heap. I dithered about it and some went in my green bin and some on the heap. Does anyone know the answer to this conundrum?

Goldfish and tadpoles

That is all very interesting folks. I have detached a small amount of spawn and put it in a solid pot with pond water and a plant or too and left the pot by the side of the pond to give a few a chance to develop. There are shallow areas of the pond and lots of plants and pebbles so one or two may survive.there appear to be gnat larvae in the pot which was in the pond water so the gold fish are not eating everything.

Thank you for your replies. I can now see what I can do to help those little taddies.

Oh dear!  Two must have survived last year so perhaps one or two will make it this year.

I have a large splodge of frogspawn in my pond and my four goldfish are ignoring it thankfully, however I am wondering whether the tadpoles will be safe when they emerge from their protective jelly. Does anyone on the forum know ?

Good luck Mistwalker, it sounds like you are off to a good start.

  1. Yes!  I sowed some rocket in my herb garden and broad beans and leeks in my veggie patch. The weeding got a little attention too

That tale is appalling Gillian. Not much we can do about some things but perhaps you did the blackbirds a good turn in making them look for a safer site to build their home in.

There are different varieties of ferns. I have an evergreen one which grows over my little pond so I hard prune it. It soon grows back as I imagine most ferns would. not sure about the other varieties though.
