How often do you feed your Annuals?

Posted: 07/02/2014 at 19:46

It depends on which annuals - some need more than others, some need none.  Which annuals are you planning to grow?

This thread is making me laugh so much, I wish I wasn't so far away and could come and join you. It does look like a beautiful place.



Suburbshrub - maybe there's some snowdrops somewhere near you - if you can find out about any why not put a thread on here and maybe some folk living in your area would like to meet up to see snowdrops

Hi David  

It's a Pernettya - it needs an acidic free draining loamy compost - it's hardy and spreads by runners from the roots so if you want to keep it compact keep it in a pot.  However, if you have acidic soil it can be planted out in the garden as groundcover.
