You can't have too many mushroom bags

Thing is with those bags if you put too many mushrooms in the bags split, now I see it's much better to spread the purchase over a couple of bags

Hi J, I have a couple of fuschias in the garden, one I know to be hardy as it has come through 2 Winters so far, with very little care or attention. I've not mulched around the plant before but might do a little this year as I would hate to lose it

The other has more delicate, smaller paler flowers which was sold to me as hardy....... I'm not convinced ..............but time will tell

Thanks for all your replies. Spring time it is then. I'm assuming you can clearly see the new growth emerging and then you cut the old growth back?

I have a lovely hardy fushia which has been doing very well. Last year we cut it back at some point, but can't remember when.

It's now stopped flowering and the berry things have gone, Is now the right time to cut it back to the ground?

Thanks

I'm in my first year of collecting seeds, nothing better than sowing them to get more plants

Good tip re the mushroom bags,I've been using the brown prepaid envelopes that come with utility bills

Seed swap

Hi Gardengirl, dug the ragged robin seeds out. I bought the original plant from a market and took the seed pods off once they were dry. I have already sowed some of this seeds this year and have had good results from them.

This my first year of collecting/storing seeds so the seeds I have are in a brown envelope, with dried pods and all. The seeds themselves are tiny  a lot like poppies.

Are you ok to have them like this?

Hi Lyn, thanks for your kind offer. That would be great as I'm developing a woodland part of the garden which I think they would do well in. Are you thinking about any seeds for next year? If your happy to send them I will PM you my address and am happy to pay for the postage
