yes if you water well every day,a can full.   they now have a very pretty small variety for baskets and pots ,you need to visit a  garden centre or nursery.

Shrub conifer turned brown this month

I have noticed many trees and bushes (in my own garden  as well) have been hit with this dying brown patches . When on holiday in Cornwall I noticed rows of different trees all affected on the same side ,brown and dying patches.It might be they can not take all the wet weather of winter or by some sort of virus.when you are out and about note the trees and bushes around you and see if they are affected too!

once a year the ants fly with wings ,now they may be of either sex but it is for one day only ,if they are causing major trouble as in aphids which they farm,use a nettle spray.

it might have a fly that lays its eggs on the fruit leaving a sticky glue like substance and  and makes the fruit drop and distort.

Crazy paving

take it and re- place with grass which looks nice and is life and not as cold and dead like gravel which is over taking this country and only ends up looking horrid and weedy and is not the answer to being lazy!dont follow the craze,some small ,very small gardens it  suits  but that is all.

montania are best in the ground as they grow fast and spread they are not for the pot really your better with a smaller variety.Keep well watered every day for the first year and when the growing season starts ,they do not like being dry.they need feeding and pruned in the right season .Montainia s are hardy if planted in the ground and can be pruned hard if they over take there plot.
