Claire Goulding yeah the pellets made of sheep sheerings really work great because of the salt content in the wool.
And after reading this thread I think 'sanjy67' you are my kind of person. Lol.

Thankyou Bonsai-Marc but I must try to resist because I know really it would be bad for the tree.

To sanjy67. Hello again, don't worry about your lilies, as you know I'm also in the South East and my lily bulbs have not made an appearance yet, despite their packaging instructions saying they should be up by now.
Im not good with patience, lol.

I might be wrong but that looks like a weed that I am constantly picking out of my raised bed in the garden.

Tomatos & Peppers (In Winter)

I currently have peppers growing well on the windowsill in my spare room. It only gets sun afternoon and evening. Also the radiator is under this window and I never draw the curtains.
Mine really are thriving at around 4 feet with multiple stems producing healthy peppers that are nearly full size now.
I will try and put some pics up a bit later.

It's a mutant !! Lol. I love it when plants to freaky things like that. I planted a load of sunflower seeds a year or so ago and they came up all greenery but no flower head they stayed Green all that year and i thought i had planted the seeds i had dried in the microwave, for bird feed, and had mutated them. Now they are growing Bell peppers.
We think at some point I had composted some pepper off cuts and missed the pips. Lol

I have been getting my potting mix from ebay for ??2.50 a litre, mixed by a pro, it's great.

Could any of you guys give me some tips on re potting my new Venus fly traps? I've done alot of online research but would be great if you could advise me.
I bought them from Blackbrooks garden centre and as is Unfortunately quite typical of plants from there it was not in the best condition.
My problem is I have 2 plants in one teeny pot and the stronger plant is doing really well but as it gets stronger the weaker plant, as you would expect, just gets weaker. I really need to seperate them.
Can I do this at this time of year ?
I'm scared I might kill them, do I have to be super gentle etc or just as gentle as any other plant ?
Any advice world be greatly appreciated x x x
