Trouble posting pictures.

Fine here as well.  Picture popping up everywhere.

Any ideas anyone?

It almost looks like the succulant leaves of the house plant referred to as the 'money plant' but in a prostrate form.  No idea what it is though.

hydrangea 'Annabelle DEAD????

Posted: 19/08/2015 at 16:14

My hydrangea (not the same variety as yours) can look sad from time to time and all it wants is a good drink - and I mean a good drink - several watering cans at a time. It soon perks up.  So try giving more water than you think it needs as a starter.

Bee boxes

There is a hole in the ground at the end of my allotment which bees have been flying in and out of for a couple of months.  I noticed this week that all activity has stopped.  Does anyone know what they were actually using the hole for?

Has anyone tried the green plastic grids that you can jam down into the grass and allow the grass to grow through but give a certain amount of 'hardstanding' for vehicles?  Just wonder if they work or not as an alternative to paving?

Thanks Verdun - if only I had a GH - I do have one of those flimsy plastic mini grow houses so that will have to do.

Verdun - will the seeds that I grew into small plants this year be safe to put out in the ground to overwinter? 

Plant name?

I was given a huge clump by a friend who said they spread like crazy.  With that in mind I separated a few & put them in a decorative plant pot and gave the rest to friends with a warning.  Mine has started to flower and looks very attractive.

Lupins help with cutting back...

I have lots of small lupin plants grown from seed this year.  I have kept them in the wheelbarrow for protection against slugs and snails.  How do I over winter them ready for planting out next year?  I don't have a greenhouse, shed, or conservatory so should I plant them in the ground now? - (with lots of slug pellets).

Yes, go and enquire - there is no harm in asking and someone might be happy to share with you.  It is hard work though, but if you love gardening you will be hooked and if you share you will be encouraged by the other plot holder and won't let them down.
