Hmmm ... that's what I'd heard MuddyFork .......... not really a lot of use then 


The plumber came when he said he would and charged  roughly what we thought he would £45 ... we have a working downstairs loo

Transplanting a mature Jacaranda - help needed

Posted: 10/05/2017 at 14:50

I can't help thinking that a tree of that size is going to be very unstable in a container - even a large and heavy one - its foliage will act as a sail and catch the wind and tip over.  It could even be dangerous. I'm afraid I don't think it's a very good idea

Over fertilised lawn urgent help. I am panicking

Posted: 10/05/2017 at 14:41

Don't soak for a week!  It doesn't do most plants any good to have their roots in water - you'll  do more harm than good and the roots will rot.  They need oxygen.  Just give them a really good water as we said.  


Unless you've put the fertilizer on my the shovel-full you won't have done that much harm I'm sure.  


Although the box gives emounts, it's not an exact science ... there is a little leeway.

Chicky - enjoy


And perhapsyou can tell us ... if we switch suppliers ... for instance, from Scottish Power to Eon, and we already have a Scottish Power smart meter, will it be of any use or will we have to have an Eon smart meter fitted?

Steep bank on to woodland

In a previous life I had a similar situation ... He who thought he should be obeyed got a friend with a digger in and pulled the bank back ............. causing a huge drainage problem as the water table in the bank was higher than the new ground level ................. take professional advice!!!
