garden problem

Joyce, I wasn't the lucky person to receive your seeds - sorry!

You won't need to do any digging, just lay each in a small depression and pull the soil around them. They like to be near the surface, not buried like bulbs.

Tall Spikey Plant- White Sap

One of the Euphorbias. All have irritant sap.

So many worms

Posted: 14/11/2014 at 10:50

I've either read or seen an item about worm charming. I seem to remember an experiment where lots of different techniques were compared, and isn't there a place where they have a worm charming event? Must go and look it up!

Advise on sourcing Live Moss for growing inside

Posted: 13/11/2014 at 17:23

Moss is very unlikely to grow inside. Why do you want to do this? We might be able to suggest alternatives if you explain further.

Weeds ID

I think it's parsnip, Pastinaca sativa. It's not ground elder or feverfew, I don't know what willow weed is. Not excluding Alexanders yet...

Tree work near electric Wires!

Posted: 11/11/2014 at 17:17

I've got a similar problem, the wire runs through a huge conifer hedge. I would like to remove the hedge, but nobody seems to want to take on the work. The pole supporting the wire is in the hedge as well, I get paid about a tenner a year for having it on my land!

Weed or flower?

Posted: 10/11/2014 at 15:36

The one with the broad, bright green leaves is the chickweed. The bittercress is the one in the middle with the pods sticking up above the flower. The leaves grow mainly as a basal rosette. Personally I wouldn't bother eating either of them!

How about a Bugle, Ajuga reptans, for ground cover? There are some lovely bronze-purple varieties, and it has spikes of blue flowers in the spring. A few plants would soon spread by runners to cover the area. It doesn't mind being trodden on when not in flower.

Hellebore Query

Posted: 10/11/2014 at 15:25

I don't cut mine off until the flowers start to show early in the year, unless they are very tatty or diseased. Some still look attractive at this time of year, to my mind, like the one in the first photo.

Fungus Query

The laurel looks very healthy. This type of fungus only attacks dead wood - that's its function in life. Don't worry about it, just accept that the wood panels are going to rot away eventually.
