I use them every year and they work wonders, especially for my poor hostas!

 

Definitely worth the money, in my opinion - I use the vine weevil ones too.

By the way, what's the best variety for a container and possibly for a smaller space?

Just had a look at these seeds and my mind boggled!

Can't find any small plants anywhere, so wondered if I am still in time to germinate some seeds indoors?

Only want a couple of plants as I'm growing them in pots!

Thanks

Watering the garden your thoughts...

Q1) a-small

Q2) er, what is grey water? I use water I collect from various cans, plus some tap

Q3) f & g

Q4) I can't collect enough rainwater, so I mainly use tap and top up with rain, especially for plants that dislike hard water, like acers, camellias etc...

Q5) a, b & c

Q6) I use very little rainwater, only what I can collect in cans, because my garden is too small for a water butt...design me a compact water butt and I'll be happy!

Has anyone got buds on there apple tree yet
