Definitely improving thanks Liri ... At least I can hobble a bit now. 


Im going to try to make use of the enforced "leisure" by sorting and shredding some paperwork over the next week or so 

Anybody know where to buy a flexible rubber plug for stoppering drainage holes in planters?

Just wondering why you're sealing up the drainage holes if yours growing plants in the pots?

Dead Bonsai?

Whatever it is it looks pretty dead to me. 


If you don't have a compost heap or garden incinerator you could  put it in the rubbish bin?

earth rings around trees

Not sure what 'looking gay' means   .......... it might look a little camp, depending on the flowers you chose .... however it's better not to cultivate the soil around tree trunks as you may damage the roots near the surface and cause suckering.


Keep grass and weeds away so they don't compete with  your lilac.  When you feed the tree sprinkle the fertiliser there and water it in then mulch with organic matter.

Help! Is my Amelanchier dying?

We planted ours just over a year ago   - it was early May  ... it's weighed down with berries and the blackbirds are loving it.


Have you been watering yours?  We've been watering ours  with a couple of buckets full of water every few days since early spring ... now we're in really hot conditions that bed also has the sprinkler on it for half an hour every other day.   We're on quite shallow free-draining loam.



Please excuse the state of the lawn edges and stuff ... I'm laid up with a broken foot at the moment ..... grrrrrrrr!

My first thought is that they're suffering from drought.


Try reducing the size of the photos ........ then they should upload ok.
