Dilemma - Corkscrew Hazel

Posted: 15/10/2014 at 12:45

Funningly enough I have made up my mind to get rid of Twisted Hazel I really don't like the dark green leaves and it is taking too much room up and stopping light from a lovely Acer I have so I am going to put on Facebook and hope someone comes forward they will have to dig it up as my old aching bones are just not strong enough anymore.

Xhose - Expandable hose - any good?

I think because of the fault of the X Hose is the reason Ideal World are now selling a second generation X Hose (as they are calling it) as been modified and made stronger if you listen to the video..............Has anyone bought one of these...........???????

Mine is a lovely glazed hextagonal deep deep pot and just don't know where to start it is so solid and compacted there is nothing to work on...............I know I must sound a bit pathetic but very determined to get it right despite been in my somewhat mature years.The other matter is why buy another pot this is just huge and the same will happen again will it not.i do trim off the leaves that go brown so it is kept to a minimum.

I have a very healthy Fatsio Japonica in a very expensive huge glazed pot.But it has a crack down the side which I am most upset about would it be the roots of the plant that is causing this the plant pot is over 2ft deep and with the plant in there stands in all to over 4ft now how do I stop this cracking do is the only way to kill the plant off as i cant get anyone to take the risk of trying to get it out of the pot.
