Help with growing an orange tree named Bailey

Posted: 26/04/2017 at 17:22

She looks super to me ..... when my children were young we grew lots of orange, lemon and grapefruit pips - the perfume from the flowers was wonderful in our shaded conservatory.  They always had white stuff on the surface of the compost.  I wouldn't worry about it. I didn't and they all grew just fine.

Anyone got the kettle on?

Have I killed my hydrangea?

Are they getting enough water?  Hydrangeas are very thirsty plants, colouring of the leaves indicates stress and drooping indicates lack of water.  

Cold spell coming up... Which of these need protecting?

My chard seedlings are at the 'seed leaf' stage in the open ground and they're surviving just fine .  as for potatoes in bags I would say that at the sort of temps we're talking about it's only if the green tops are showing through the soil that you need worry - and if they are just cover them with more soil/compost.

Hope Wonky's got her hard hat on - that was quite a vicious hailstorm!

See original post

 Well, she said she was wearing a baseball cap to keep the hail out of her eyes   Son said there was a really bad hailstorm at Leiston, all the car and burglar alarms in the town centre were going off and causing mayhem - he said some of the hailstones were half an inch across

DD - we're all rooting for you ((hugs))

Just heard from Wonky ... she's been weeding again, but is happy ...  the surroundings sound idyllic.  

Plant ID please

My memory is very visual ... sometimes (but not always) it manages to attach the right label to the image ... it's not infallible but it'll be interesting to see if that does grow into a pomegranate bush.  

Plant ID please

This has been bugging me and something came into my head ... pomegranate seedling?

There is a sort of similarity ................ 

What is your weather like? (2)

Love Cullen skink ... make it here quite often 

The weather here today is horrid ... heavy hailstorms leaving the ground completely covered and setting off the car alarm ... then a spell of bright sunshine raising the hope that the bad stuff is over, then another hail storm ............... but the lowest temp in the back garden last night was 3C, so not as bad as it could have been.
