Bargain of the year

Posted: 13/09/2013 at 10:45

watch out for Tescos bargains,bought 50 bulbs for 3 pound which were marked 5pound but alas the second time round dispite the £3 pound sign charged £5.a little naught on their part I thought.

Ants on rose - why?

Posted: 13/09/2013 at 10:41

the ants are getting ready to harvest the aphids by puttting them there (watch) and farm them to their advantage thats why you put a oily rag round apple tree to prevent this.

watering cactus

the death for a cactus is to over feed it and over water it and to neglect to water it at all.they draughts and airless rooms but like warm sunshine.do not put between the curtains in winter.

perparing for next year

Posted: 05/09/2013 at 19:06

The mornings are becoming cooler and the season is beginning to change.Its not quite time over for flowers as there are many that will flower for a long while yet.Its time to plant those wallflowers in a spare patch to grow on and to get seed from the flowers as they go over such as sweetpeas.I am getting ready to get those spring bulbs planted before the earth becomes cold such as tulips and dig up those spring ones that need to go into shed as the tubers when they finish flowering.The Apple has been pruned and the grape vine in october and no later.The final clip for some hedges and to sort out the pond plants that need to be divided.Choosing the spring bulbs is my favorite and hopefully they will bloom next spring .A busy time for gardener.
