Orange Tree Care

oh dear,well do not water until really dry and then water well,they do not like central heating .In summer they like to be out side and not watered until bone dry.so if thats in the front room with central heating and no ventilation it wont  thrive.

Fuschia Cutting's

plant in pot with good drainage, the most inportant thing is not to over water and be patient and not tempted to pull out the cutting to soon,it might look dead but wait a little and it will come to life and also not to hot enviroment.some people use plant hormone or as  monty a vit c tablet but me I just stick  a heel cutting into the pot.

Lawnmower Design and Use

Posted: 16/10/2013 at 16:16

The best lawn mower is the one i have had for years,although my husband would disagree.A push mower,involves no petrol,electric,or anything else and has a gentle sound .It is excercise ,it is green and lasts alot longer than the plastic kind.
