Plant pot problem

Posted: 05/05/2013 at 12:49

Hi guys,

I want to put a plant pot around the base of a wooden pole I have in the garden but I can't take the pole out first. So I need either a pot that splits so I can wrap it around or a design of, possibly, a wooden one I can make. Any ideas?




Plant identification please

That's great guys thank you. I'm going to thin them out a bit and maybe put them under some trees in the drive way.

Yes it does. I remember that last year when we first moved in. That's great thank you. Is there anything I should know? It seems to look after itself and the bees love it.

Hi guys, I have inherited a huge grape vine that needs managing. In fact it needs reducing by half. Can I cut it back now or should I wait till spring? Cheers Jo

Hi guys, I have a large patch of ground that half of is covered in weeds and the other is full of shrubs. I have cut most of the shrubs away and now want to dig the whole lot up, however, the sandy soil I have seems to be rock hard and I can't get a spade through it. Any suggestions? Cheers Jo
