Splitting a Phormium and organic feed..

Posted: 13/08/2014 at 16:55

brilliant thank you guys thats so helpful. i will see how i get on.

i have deliberately not watered it. but with these little bouts of heavy showers its been a bit difficult to keep it completely dry.

so all the pointy tall leaves i can cut back a few feet? as these are the newer growths arent they?

im hoping it will produce new pointy leaves again if i cut it.

hi there,

 

I have a large apx 6 foot phormium in a pot that i now no longer have room for. I dont really want to get rid of it so thought i could divide it up maybe into two and plant in different places.

can anyone offer some advice. im not even sure how to get it out of its pot its so heavy.

also i have some manure left over and sure i heard you can make an organic plant feed out of this. ie maybe to use on tomatoes and green beans that i am growing.

anyone know about how to do this and if it is works well.

oh and i live in south east london.

will my new four tier plastic greenhouse work same as a glass one?

erm. i asked about the heater as i know people use them to keep the temperature up when its cold outside for their greenhouse plants.

as i dont have much space on window sill etc. mainly be used to grow on seeds. mainly fruit/ veg i guess but also some flowers.

really want to see if i can grow things at a time when you cant grow things outside.

i dunno. i mean if its air circulated and in the top part where there is plenty of room between heater and top of plastic.

mine is unfortunately against a fence as dont have many walls.

arent you supposed to be able to grow things earlier in a greenhouse? does the same apply to plastic ones?

and how do you stop snails getting in the bottom? I have had a thought of coverings the ends of the plastic with vaseline then sprinkling it with salt. wonder if that will work to stop them climbing up?

Hi there,

i have just got a 4 tier mini greenhouse. type you get from argos homebase etc with the plastic cover and wondered if it will work the same way as a glass one?

i.e could i use a plug in heater in it for example? I need to look up greenhouse growing in general and what i can do but thought i would find ask.

 

many thanks

thank you. dont know if you can see in second picture. i do have three pots of bamboo which has grown well. ive now cut into decking (second pic) to create more bedding area.

i think it definetly needs a focus. i would really love to flatten it all. create an area under window and rest lawn and borders but that would cost alot of time and effort,

i also want to try and create secluded area where my neighbours back bedroom window can not over look.

can someone tell me what flowers are called?

yes livingstone daisy sounds familiar now thank you

that makes sense as they are out the front which gets  full morning sun. ( and forgetfulness in watering) so they in the right place....

hi there, i have a small victorian terrace garden that is raised. what i want is a love calm garden with a place to sit and water and tall plants for privacy.

it is currently fully decked when i moved in and really dont like all the wood. but too expensive to rip up and try and create something else so i guess need to work with it.

any ideas??

first picture is what it was originally like and second its current ( needs a tidy up) state.

 

thanks
