Help! Droopy fig

Posted: 16/02/2013 at 03:14

It depends where you are but I would say put it outside, they dont realy like being indoors and they dont like central heating. They can overwinter outside no problem (how big is it?).


Mossy lawn

Posted: 16/02/2013 at 03:07

You can give it a fine rake, that will take out some of the moss but depending on how long its been there the grass may have died underneath. Like Dovefromabove says, airate it with a fork (garden not kitchen) the moss doesnt like that, a sprinkling of sharp sand will help with drainage. 

I found these videos very helpfull

what I want is a 30 inch waist but I dont want to have to diet or excersize, I would like the earth tilted on its axis slightly so Englands weather is more like south of France and warm up those poor Scots.

If you can give your dogs tomatoes aswell, that may help. Something in the toms that neutralise the damage caused by urine

Are Morrisons bulbs any good ??

Posted: 14/02/2013 at 09:03

Chances are they are cheap because they are last years spring flowering bulbs that are left over, which means its unlikely you would get any flowers from them this spring if they haven't been planted yet. Do you know what bulbs they are?

Thanks Bev,

A huge thanks for the Foxglove apricot seeds, they arrived this morning. (quicker than the Mr Fothergills seeds that I ordered several weeks ago).

the pope

Like I initially posted, this is not the forum for posts about a man of such religious status. There are always going to be frayed tempers and varied comments from people of several differing faiths and beliefs. Everyone is entitled to have their own feelings on such matters. I myself have no hatred or bad feelings toward any person of faith (of any type). After all, I am one of them.
