tree planting problem - please help!

Lee, you don't have to convince Verdun - he's one of Adrian Bloom's biggest fans.

I love visiting Bressingham Gardens

Glad you've found the leak Philippa   Hope it all gets cleared up and sorted out soon.

Advise on a present just received, a Prunus Incisa

What a lovely present - yes it's a cherry, but a shrub not a tree - a very lovely thing.

If you can't plant it out now, I'd put it in a decent sized pot with some John Innes No 3 loam-based compost.

No Jo, I didn't see the Northern Lights

Wonky has just phoned - she's been sent home from work with a temperature and the snots.  She's going to snuggle under the eiderdown and has been told to take tomorrow off too.  Bless her ((hugs)) ............. I hope she didn't give it to me when I visited yesterday

Brrrrr! It's colder here at the moment than it's been for ages, and we've got heavy rain.  I may even put some heating on while I watch Heidi and do some knitting - is it winter yet?

Grass seed

Hi Gothic gardener

The type of grass seed you need depends on the situation of the lawn (sun/shade etc) and what the lawn is going to be used for.

Can you give us more information?

I've found in the past that daffodils sometimes show brown at the tips if the bulbs have been dry earlier just as they're starting into growth.  They are usually much happier if kept on the damp side.

LilyP - you're welcome to join us, but you must bring your own lobster - that's the one thing I'm not sharing
