I heard Monty advise that you can plant nasturtiums nearby that naturally attract caterpillers and then you can contain them there and deal with them - just a thought!

Talkback: How to grow orchids

Posted: 25/10/2012 at 22:45
Hey Adam, thank you for your very good instructions about growing Orchids. I have always been told that Orchid roots like to see daylight and to keep them in clear pots? What do you think because you say put them in terracotta pots?

Dear Yarrow,  many thanks for your response; as yet I have not done anything but I think I will give them a feed and a good water just to see what happens and then if no response dig them up.  Cheers

Dear All, I have two plants both old in my garden  one is a Quince the other one is a Forest Flame and I don't know whether to dig them out because they are both struggling.  I have cut both back recently to see if this helps.  What do you think?
