When we moved here the garden was full of pigeons, and we're big Vic & Bob fans. 

Fig Tree - Problem?

I find that mine started to produce better when I increased the watering. The potting medium s so free draining that it virtually comes straight out of the bottom of the pot , but it's much better if I give it a bucket of water a day and don't let the leaves flag too much.

Peppers prefer to be kept a bit on the dry side. 

Fig Tree - Problem?

It looks as if it needs watering.


mine is 4 years old and is in a pot 20" x 20" x 20" in mix of John Innes no 3 loam based compost with added grit. It gets at least a bucket full of water most days in the summer and tomato fertiliser once a week.

Rob  after three years it's getting the hang of things and is beginning to spread nicely around the shallow edges of the pond  but certainly not rampant and I really can't imagine it running riot over eight gardens and growing over a wall 


By the way - mine is the green version.

I've heard it all now! The problem is the garden's square!


Are you saying there's not a single hidey behindy bit anywhere?


See original post

 Nope - not one!  


Three house windows along the back of the house 


1.  Dining room - two linked water butts under the dining room window sill


2.  Kitchen window - outdoor tap and drain under the kitchen window


3.  Studio window - big glass sliding wall from floor to ceiling, opening out onto the dining area of the terrace.


You see, nowhere there to hid stuff 'under the windowsill'.


The Clematis Montana is on the back fence, under the big ash tree up on the Shady Bank - can't keep junk up there - it'd block the 'hedgehog gate' under the fence and stop the hedgehogs getting in.  


No ivy - by agreement with the neighbours - when we moved here there was ivy up to the eaves and in the attic, not to mention fences covered with ivy at least six feet thick - which fell down in a heavy rainstorm two weeks after we moved in 




You see, no hidey corners ... not once we'd got rid of that lot ...
