moving a jasmine/climber

Posted: 10/03/2014 at 16:27

It may be because you have not pruned it or cut it back. Mine likes to cut back or clipped like a hedge to provide flowers and this year was very good .I would take cuttings as well as pruning it now and you can move it as long as you water it well for sometime until it is settled.

Can anyone help identify what bird this is?

it is a great spotted wood pecker and lovely they are.

For those with cat, fox or other animal problems....

we have foxes and badgers plus cats that burst through the fences leaving a hole to be repaired  so in the end we decided to leave one hole for them all to pass through but on the whole we live with how it is and clear up if we have too and devise all sorts of home protection for the seeds e.t.c. that don't cost a thing.

Manure

Posted: 01/03/2014 at 16:58

depending on your soil(at the moment I can not do a thing as my clay soil is waterlogged) I would dig a trench and put your manure in that ready for your beans and really you needed to put it on well before you need to plant out or put seeds in. My husband does this in autumn and early spring usually.

Pruning a baby clematis

Posted: 01/03/2014 at 16:48

if you have just planted this and it is small, I would not prune this year, make sure you planted it fairly deep and water each day until established .I have found that until they are settled and showing more growth its best to leave alone for the first year, I have lost many due to cutting to soon.
