I have never ever watched a shopping channel - but I have bought some new unused things very cheaply from a colleague whose partner watched them a lot

I use Fish Blood and Bone meal twice a year (spring and summer) on perennial borders, shrubs veg plot fruit buses etc.

I give clematis and roses 2 or 3 handfuls of specialist feed before and during the flowering season

I give the plot where I'm going to grow leafy veg some chicken manure pellets when I'm preparing the soil.

Tomatoes and squashes get about three feeds of tomato food after the first fruits have set. 

Shrubs in tubs get a spray of diluted seaweed fertiliser on their leaves about once a fortnight in the summer.

I don't use wetting agents etc for tubs and baskets  - if I've let them dry out I admonish myself severely  and add a tiny squirt of Ecover organic washing up liquid to a watering can full of water.  That acts as a wetting agent and helps the water soak into dry compost.  But I try not to let it happen!   I also use the same mix for spraying greenfly/whitefly if the infestation is too bad to leave it to the birds.

Shopping telly is designed to sell you things you don't need - step away from the box!!!

The best tip I know about buying wisteria is to buy one that's in flower when you  buy it

 

I prefer the Davidia Involucrata's other name ... Dove tree
