Potted tree

I  bet there is some one somewhere who would like to plant the tree in their garden.I would and I have done so before.Its a shame to waste it when its got a lot of life to go.

you could put it by your gate with a sign "please give me a good home".on the plant of course.

Orange peel,soot,a water pistol or you can get a sort of hooter that frightens them off.Cats can be annoying and their pooh uninviting but they will keep those rats and mice from multiplying.never a easy solution.

I bought a garlic bulb from the local shop and its growing madly everywhere.I am afraid I use it for gardening purposes rather than eating.

I have a rose  called Iceberg which is a climber and is white with a tinge of pink.It is robust and I have taken many cuttings and it flowers twice if you prune it in summer.I have one by my front door which gives that gentle scent as you go in and one in the back garden.very hardy and beautiful.

I keep mine for a year

Can I start a holly hedge with bareroot plants?

Posted: 26/09/2012 at 14:24

I started my sons hedge with mix bushs including holly.They were small seedlings when I dug them up and replanted to hedge.Slow growing and tough is a holly and they need to be male and female if you want those berries.

Keeping seeds from rotting Nasturium

you can collect alot of the seed while green and turn into capersif you like that(pickled).Most of the seed that drops will pop up next summer all over the place.I also collect the seed if possible on a dry day and put them to dry on  a window then when dry place in paper bag or envelope.They are so numerous you wont go short of plants next year.Store away from mice e.t.c. and plant again next spring.you can also eat the leaves and flowers a gentle pepper flavor.
