Hedgehog spotted

Posted: 27/11/2015 at 14:43

I leave some food and water  out in a covered feeding station - I check it most days and top it up as necessary.  The hedgehogs do wake and have a wander in mild spells. 

HELP! Something is growing on the terracotta Pot!

I think it looks different because it's 'new' - as it spreads it will look more like the weathered pots.

lawn problem

Posted: 27/11/2015 at 11:20

Hello Nick

In what way/s does the lawn look undernourished?

Is it the colour of the grass, density or ...... ?

Can you tell us more about the lawn (age, sun/shade, soil type, management regime etc).

A photo or two might be helpful

Lilies in pot

Posted: 27/11/2015 at 09:40

I have some in a pot which regrow year after year (I feed after flowering and repot in the spring).  They spend every winter outside in a sheltered corner.  I think I'd leave yours in the cold frame if you have room there, and then plant out in the spring before they start into growth. 

If there's no room in the coldframe because of other more fragile plants, they'll be fine in a sheltered corner - if you think the pot might be damaged by frost wrap it in bubblewrap but leave the top open

We must remember this thread and others like it, so that when we get those regular queries from the design students we can point them in the right direction
