Seaside Home

Silvery leaved plants so I've read are ones that cope well with seaside conditions like thrift, convolvulous (not sure if I spelt that right) lavender. Would also be a good idea to have a walk around your new neighbourhood to see what is growing in the gardens too.

All cold callers saying your computer has a problem. The post persons who try to deliver something when you're 30 seconds from home and leave a card instead. Ron Burgundy and jazz flutes.

Sprouts are awesome.

Garden programme on Sky 1

Must admit if I was going to watch any of those programmes, it would be the Voice. And I agree the challenges weren't really challenges, more of a practical exercise. My OH did say that the lady in the second couple and eventual winner did make a few sharp comments though.

Poorly Rubber Plant

Let it dry out and check the soil its in and repot in fresh compost. It might work, it might not.

Fatalii, they are yellow pointed chillis. We did grow Ricotto for the first time last year, they are as big as an apple and very very hot, so my Turkish brother inlaw tells me. It depends what you want. Do you want heat, flavour or productivity. My OH says these are very mild. But we may have 'spares' once they get to a size or we can send you seeds. PM me if you are interested.

It was good to watch, need to see a few more I think.

Orchid problems

Cut back to the next bud, I try to do a sloping cut and have your plant in the sun. If it does the same again, cut right down. It will produce a new leaf and then a new stem, at least that's what my kitchen ones do.

We start all varieties off at the same time and we have had comments from friends and family members who are used to hotness that ours were hot.

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

Plant ID

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
