Talkback: Dealing with moss

Posted: 07/04/2014 at 14:27

rhapsody - I wouldn't put the moss in the compost heap. After using chemical lawn treatments any clippings etc that you have should be put in your bin for council uplift. I wait about 6 weeks after using anything before adding the clippings to my compost. I've not had any problems

osmanthus and viburnum

Posted: 07/04/2014 at 14:07

I planted an Osmanthus last autumn in one of my raised beds which is North West facing. I've got a few bits and pieces in front of it - crocus, primulas and Tiarella. It will get some sun late afternoon even at this time of year. It's flowering well and looks happy enough - for now anyway.  If it outgrows the space or stops thriving I'll just remove it and relocate. Think I'd give it at least a couple of feet from the jasmine if you have the room.

Take them out when they've reached the eventual height you want them NewBoy. Usually about 5 or 6 trusses I'd think.

Horrible here now after looking not bad this morning. Oh well...

Doc- don't strain yourself now... 

I saw a sign for sale recently with the Latin inscription of Don't let etc. on it.  Think I may buy it and put it on the wall of the house 

The Hidcote prog is good - seen it a few times. Think there's a Christo Lloyd one on too if I remember correctly.

Lovely to 'see' you Bev. Hope work is alright now
