Thanks Bob theGardener & nutcutlet I will certainly give it a go as this must be much cheaper.

Hi, I have decided to try collecting & growing my own seed. My problem is many articles tell you how to collect & store but not when is the best time to sow. I have collected campanula,salvia, allium & hellebores. Should I sow now or in the spring. Any advice appreciated. Thanks

Hi Wilesy 100 I had the same problem last year and decided to take a chance & cut back hard to about 2foot high. It has regrown to a much more manageable size with new shoots red as they should be. Give it a go

Hi, this is the first season of planting my box parterre. Spring has been very successful with white tulips under-planted with wallflowers. Could anyone suggest summer plants.  Many thanks.

An update on my box problems of last year. At the moment they are all looking really healthy, hopefully they were just stressed due to planting & the wet weather. Obviously I am keen to keep them looking good-I intend to spray with clear rose but should I do this before or after I trim them. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi, Thanks for the response. Willowplanter, I am a little more hopeful as after spraying & clearing out dead matter the die back has stopped; as you mentioned mine were newly planted.  Lavender Lady, the programme was useful but had unfortunately fed before I watched it!!.  With lots of TLC I hope they will recover

Hi, I'm hoping it is not blight. Have contacted my supplier(garden centre) their own look same. He suggested weather to blame and to feed and spray with rose clear ultra. Will give it a go. Thanks for site, very helpful.

Hi, I have planted up two box parterre and a bed of box balls. I followed all guides and did not scrimp on planting e.g grit compost bone meal.  After looking healthy for 3months they have suddenly taken a turn for the worst.  I suspect blight after reading up. I have spent approx £400  surely I haven't wasted this money!! Please, any advice would be appreciated.
