Is seeding compost suitable for mature plants?

Posted: 04/06/2016 at 22:20

Seed compost is very low nutrient. You would need to add a good fertiliser like blood fish and bone. Is it loam based or peaty? The more fibrous sort will rot down and the level will drop. You really need topsoil or loam for raised beds.

Is that Cornus florida variegata  or Weigela florida variegata you are thinking of?

Remove all the forgetmenots and let the light in. They will toughen up in the light.

Most dahlias are perennial, they form tubers which will overwinter. Most bedding dahlias are grown from seed and are a fast growing type which will flower early and can thus be treated as annuals. As you have found, in a mild winter, they will survive to grow again.

Put it in the shade. It will have an underdeveloped root system and cannot draw up water fast enough in sunlight.

WELCOME BACK PANSYFACE


No floods here. The soil under the oak is so dry I cant get a fork in. I've put the soaker hose on so I can put bean sticks in.


Hugs for chicky too.
