My castor oil plant

Posted: 11/02/2013 at 15:17

I think you will find it has gone rotten with mould at the roots with over watering and not good drainage.Its a common thing to over water when they really do not need it.

perhaps we look but do not know the answer,or perhaps we have answered the question before and are over questioned.any way answered here!

Clematis nelly moser

Posted: 11/02/2013 at 15:07

with clematis you need to have to layer them to succeed ,or by seed,My friend did so successfully but not me.Nellie likes to be cut back about the end of Feb and again after flowering in summer(if stops raining) be careful not to cut back to far and if its a new plant wait until it is settled.I hear they have brought out a trailing small clematis for hanging baskets ,looks good.

I hear it was pretty deep in America,we usual get what you have a few weeks later(I hope not)I hope you got home o.k and that the snow will subside and I hope spring comes soon too!

Feeding Bulbs That Have Gone Over

Posted: 10/02/2013 at 16:28

when they have finished flowering ,i let the green leaves die back then put into the garden or into bucket of earth for next year(keeping out doors and watered)but to be honest it is best to put in the garden .

How To Care For A Baby Cactus!

keep them from draughts and cold window sills,do not put between curtains and window when weather very cold.water only when very dry,more in summer and less in winter.john innes compost and feed in spring and summer.a tray of grit or saucer to stand on and to water from.

sounds like lack of water,feel the soil with your finger,if its very dry then lack of water,or if too wet over watering and maybe stood in stagnant water.

The weather

Posted: 10/02/2013 at 14:51

Chilli,I think I was thinking how reliant we have become on machines and weather people ,this is useful,but in away it makes us lazy and we forget those skills we once had and passed down to our children.I know from my ex-job that my observation skills were better than relying on  a machine or a chart and that many of my colleagues had lost the art.and the same for weather and the teaching of plants e.t.c.the pleasure of passing on these skills,and you all are right.

yes its seems to be on going even if some of the spring flowers think otherwise.fed up of not being able to get out without getting wet.saw two Brent geese fly low over my head ,this was in the town ,that's a new one for me here in the city.
