Umberella plant

Posted: 02/01/2013 at 17:20

I have a umbrella plant which I have cut the dead leafs and branches quite severe and it survived ,and another I rescued from outside a house that was disposing of a pathetic  plant ,I thought cut it back nothing to lose and left for awhile and it burst forth with new leaves.I would not prune to hard just take the dead bits out and yellow leafs and it will be fine,they are tough.

I had a willow tree some years ago which I chopped down, the remains are still in the garden,it did for awhile have a fungus ,(flat type)but it did not spread elsewhere,but beware of the honey fungus.

Well that's very nice photos and it  is nice to get out and about with out getting wet.The weather is sunny today and I might just escape outside to tidy up.Been for a walk at wrington,the weir was in full flood and the fields very sodden but I did spot a green woodpecker in the bush by the weir.

waste fish tank water

Posted: 01/01/2013 at 14:34

I think all the nutrients from the fish waste would do it good referring to the emptying of the tank.and cress use to be grown on blotting paper and water cress is grown on just water,clean water but I would imagine it would have to be running water.

I love Marigolds,I grew the common old fashion ones this year and they such a long lasting show and were the only plant that did so well.I grew them on my front border and they looked stunning even if I say so myself.I wish you a very happy new year and may it bring you a lovely summer and happy hours of garening.
