Fairy   the woman with the Ardennes horses worked in the woodland behind my old office for a fortnight ... I only discovered they were there the day they were finishing   I love Ardennes - I think we may have similar DNA

Was anyone watching the Countryfile weather forecast yesterday?  A possible serious cold snap in mid April .... Snow?!?!?! 

Dianthus dead from acidic soil?

Ah!  I don't know Dianthus 'Shirley Temple' so I googled ... Hayloft Plants specifically mentions that they "dislike acidic soils". 


So that may well be your problem ... 

Dianthus dead from acidic soil?

In my experience problems with most dianthus have been largely due to poor drainage in the winter. I used to garden on clay and the only way I could keep them going was by incorporating large amounts of grit into a sheltered south facing slope.

Raspberries when do they start getting leaves

Posted: 03/04/2017 at 06:54

So the one that's been there longer is shooting first?  That's as I would expect. Mine have been in four or five years and are only just shooting now.


I'd leave it a bit longer before giving up hope. 

Gardeners World- what's going on ?
