as nutculet  says you wont get something to flower all through the seasons so you need to plant things that will flower at different times and have a good flowering. My arch has 3 different clematis and a rose plus kiwi .

you can re -pot them with fresh compost and make sure no lily beetles around ,(garlic grown in the same pot or spray  will deter the blighters) and put now into shed for winter that's what I do .

I have just come back from visiting my favourite house and garden,Ford Abbey.This time of year it is beautiful and so inspirational .Those borders packed with flowers , the  vegetable garden amazing .My favourite is the bog garden and I have my own gunnera but not as big as these here.  Plants can be bought here too and it makes a lovely day out for all the family .

they like poor soil and good drainage and don't over water,remember to use the flowers and leaves plus the seeds for capers. you need to make sure it does not go to seed  and don't over water or feed.

Can u actually create a poisonous liquid fertilizer

Posted: 03/08/2014 at 15:55

all home made fertilizer makes a pong and will grow bacteria on it. keep outside in a container in a dark corner.Hold your nose when using the liquid because it does pong and feed your plants.its good for your plants and its cheap!
