Flood damage

Posted: 12/02/2014 at 13:23

a lot of drowned animals I suspect as there is nowhere for them to go .The rats are going into peoples homes looking for dry spots and food.The swans and birds seem to be o.k but how much damage is really done will show when the floods subside.

you need to keep dead heading the flowers and when they have finished if the plant is getting bigger ,divide ,this is easy and will give you more plants and flowers plus should you lose one you still have plenty.

if its going to your compost bin it might be  a small mammal heading for a feed, even may be cat or fox that's strolled over your border but it could be a thrush or blackbird looking for snails and worms, they do chuck things about in there search for food.

Talkback: Wet clay soil

Posted: 30/01/2014 at 20:44

I suppose it is hard to advise for all type s of soil, I have clay soil and indeed it is difficult to work with especially when sodden .I think you have to work with a good gardening book and with the people who live near you rather than relying on magazine .

Are slugs still about?

Repotting an Orchid

Posted: 27/01/2014 at 16:22

I am trying with one orchid as suggested on a gardening programme to grow it in a glass container with out soil ;at the moment it looks happy,they grow on trees so I quess they wont mind not having soil but the container gives it the  moistness it needs and the light.(they need to rest for awhile after flowering and they need watering when really dry and with rain water), in the glass container it needs no watering will be interesting to see if it works.
