we have blackbirds that follow us around and they enjoyed keeping my "plastic covered walk in green house free of flies this summer!

What's happening in my garden!

Hi Louise, re photos, I find they dont always download straight away on this site, you need to try it about 3 times (dont know why, probably a bit buggy!)]

Another tip, come the spring, top dress all your pots with a good layer of fresh compost to give the plants a boost. Good luck

Hi Jean6 a couple of years ago Monty Don showed how to do rose cuttinsg and he made it very simple and clear. I managed to get a couple to take and they are now in bloom


!I did mine outside in some well drained soil (and basically forgot about them for a year!) You might be able to find it again on this site.

Good luck

I have bought loads of plants from Morrisons over the years ( i sneak them in with the food shopping!!) and I would say 99% have been successful. Some times I pot them on for a bit, but generally they are good quality and grow well. I bought some Eucomis bulbs last year for £1 each, potted them up and they were fabulous this Autumn.

Never ordered any of these so called free offers though!

What is this little plant?

Hi Happymarion. My horse chestnut tree is looking ablaze with colour. Will post some piccies soon. However my potted Acers are looking a bit crisp around the leaves, I water them well, so any suggestions?
