Can I ask what maks you say that their attitude is they don't care. Did you get that as a response?

I can see that they have alot of sales on at the min,  this is to make way for new stock, I suppose just the same as clothing stores etc.

don't dispair guys, if you missed it, there are lots of gardening programmes on youtube. 

some of them may be a year old or more, but if you havent seen it then its new to you. I truly LOVE GW and with a week to catch up is plenty, but if you do miss it, then do a search online. 

Winter feeding of cuttings

Posted: 23/01/2013 at 08:08

If you check the roots in the pot, see if they are comming out of the bottom or root bound, if you do need to repot then they will get any nutrients from new compost you put in. I wouldnt tend to feed any plants this time of year, its a natural cold spell by now they will have stored food and alot of plants have become dormant around now. (unless they are in a heated greenhouse)

What's the weather like in your area?
