When will my asiatic/oriental lilly come through

Should have pushed through by now-if it is in the ground have a little fiddle in the soil

winter pansies can they carry on

Well they can -but honestly not worth the bother of keeping-treat as an annual-discard- and start afresh later in the year

Not knowing where you are located makes judging difficult-bit don't think that it is sunburn looks more like a reaction to cold temperatures-were they hardened off correctly-was it it cold at night ??

Has anyone seen such a good gardening product?!

So lets see Fred George and Charlie all recommend the same product

Charlie thinks Tonbridge is in Shropshire-where is has an allotment-Fred is In Tonbridge and so is Charlie-apparently

All this is a load of old manure-now you have been rumbled-I claim my free hose

Another plant identifier please....

I heard on gardeners question time that someone put oats down for the ants to eat,it expands in their stomach and kills them.apparently!?

Must have misheard-that is for slugs-dont think ants are that keen on porridge

Ants are more of a problem than a pest-learn to live with them-not going round killing everything just because they are a nuisance

Plant ID please

Aliesh asked the same question yesterday??


How can I revive a wilting in house hydranger

Where have you got It?-in a window?

Take it out of the pot and inspect the root system -is it dry or soaking wet?-either is not good

Or has something eaten the roots?

Feeding may not be the answer

Help! What has eaten my dahlias?!

Even if slugs are the culprit the number of pellets is a bit OTT. 

Thanks for your useful post nutcutlet aka the slug pellet you can see slugs are not likely to be the problem!

Mmm-find that response as a bit rude -even if meant in jest-that number of slug pellets is absolutely ridiculous,unnecessary and not wildlife friendly

A bit of moderation would not go amiss-take that as you will
