yes ,I was only saying to my husband that our hedge was dying or at least part of it, I wonder if it is a virus as other trees around have this .I have already lost a lilac to  a virus ,wonder if it is same thing.

they say to soak the peas in parrifin which they do not like.

Seed prices

Posted: 24/03/2014 at 13:18

I have noticed that Urwins prices are very much increased ,I think £1.99 is far too much for a pkt of seeds,some cheaper ones do as well like the ones at B+Q but you don't get the variety.All the more important to collect seed if you can.

Sawfly -Gooseberries

yes make sure there is open spaces in the bushes so as the air can flow between the branches (sawflies don't like this) and I would and I do give one spray to prevent them taking hold.

Mixing lilys bulbs

I have these two and they are lovely but mine are in two separate pots but next to each other they compliment each other. mind the lily beetle.

Orchid

do not water with tap water unless it has stood for 24hrs as they do not like the chemicals in it they like rain water,heat,misting,and grow in bark as they grow on trees.do not water until bone dry and do not leave standing in water.like a bright but not too sunny a spot and you feed them when in flower with orchid feed or tomato feed once a month.
