If you've let them go to seed then leave them and transplant the new seedlings in spring, if the parent survives cut that back in spring too and hopefully you'll have a lovely display. ????

Click on the little tree icon at the top of the reply box and it gives you the options to browse for your picture. There might be a size upload limit but you'll know how to resize won't you? Good luck I'll watch to see how you get on. 

Fuchsia ID please

Sorry, no not Tom Thumb, his petals not so long and pink, Tom's colouring similar to the afore mentioned Mrs Popple! Plus this one seems too big, maybe a point of reference would have been useful on the photo, a coin, or a ruler, to aid identification? 

Fuchsia ID please

I thought it might be Florence May Joiner, but it all depended on how old the flower is, and the size etc of your plant, however, I must agree with Lisa J it is a lovely specimen. 

Fuchsia ID please

Not Mrs Popple, colours not strong enough and flower not the right shape. However, not sure what it is. Sorry not to be much help but will think and come back if inspiration strikes! 

What do I grow?

Mesembryanthemum and osteospermum don't think any one has mentioned love them because of their Names! Hope everyone having an operation keeps well and recovers quickly to enable them to get back to their calming gardening tasks.

What a lovely generous idea, I run a school gardening club and we always need seeds , so your offer would be a godsend for me especially as the last strong winds broke our greenhouse so all find raising will be directed there, if I can work out how I'll message you my email.  Thank you in advance x

That new roundup gel

Posted: 23/10/2013 at 18:40

I have used it with some success on dandelions on my lawn, but must add to what others have said that it is hard to tell if you've put on enough and if it is working. So, you put on more, yes I know I'm impatient, but then it bleeds off and kills a small bit of surrounding grass. Very frustrating, but, if you can cope with waiting, and pull off any flowers that may occur, it does work and the plants do die.  

Also agree with fairy re the bamboo Valerie, , get your spade and saw out: invite your friends and family round and have a bamboo party!  Enjoy!
