both suggestions are ones I had not thought of - thanks!  I have been looking around at some (lifelike) pretend plants also but would prefer the real thing.  I think I may just try different ones - this winter - a sort of pilot study !

I have a small north facing porch - that has no heating - but is insulated with double glazing door and window.

No problem in the summer - does anyone know of a plant that would survive and hopefully thrive there during the winter?

For years I have prided myself on my nice lawn which I feed and water often. This year clumps become loose and  and leave bare patches.I suspect LeatherJackets (laid by daddy-long-legs)? but would welcome any comments thanks.

Fairygirl I think you have it - I think they are maybe a bit overcrowded and I thanks also to marshmellow - I think I am a bit early !

I dont seem to be able to get Basil to grow well.  I have started them indoors and although they are now growing they are very low to the soil (and bushy) but not growing high enough to snip.

Any ideas? Would it be better outside?

Do my Blueberries need feeding?

I have five blueberry plants - and have never ever fed them.  Each year they give me a bumper crop in their turn - but this year I notice not so many flowers as usual - could they now need something else from me?

I think you could be right.

Brummie - I will give your suggestion a try - thanks !

The (core) of the stem of my Yukka is completely infested with insects.

Any ideas - ?
