Bay Tree on its last legs

Posted: 27/02/2015 at 21:00

A Bay needs to live outside - it's not a houseplant.   If the sales assistant truly told you that it was a houseplant then I would take the plant back and ask for your money back.  If however you asked if it was a 'hardy' plant and the answer was yes this may have been the point of confusion, as in gardening the term 'hardy' is used to refer to outdoor plants that can cope with the severity of frost which is normal in the UK (or wherever the shop is).

A Monstera deliciosa also known as the Swiss Cheese Plant would be much happier in your bedroom.

There's usually enough hot air on here Panda, but it's a bit quiet at the moment

Take care of yourself and have a good evening

Help identifying weeds

Whatever they are, I'm sure a treatment with Evergreen 80 in the spring will kill them off and perk the lawn up.

I would hesitate to treat lawn weeds with Resolva - it's amazing how even the most directly aimed squirt affects the grass surrounding the weed.

..... Trouble is there are rats in the compost even though I never put foodstuff in there and I've been leaving poison for them, and they're leaving really large poos about, Around an inch long and a quarter inch diameter. ...

I'm confused - can't see a reference to 2 inches ...
