thanks for your replies.

Verdun - when i looked on the web regarding red robin, fan palm, and hydrangea it said they like acid-neutral soil....?

so i best just stick with the miracle grow for acid plants and stick the acers, azaleas and rhodos?

Hi

i have a number of acid loving plants like rhododendron, camellia and red robin to name a few.

generally I use miracle grow all over the garden. Is this a good all round fertiliser for both alkaline and acid loving plants?

or should I try something different.

i recently bought some camellia and rhododendron liquid feed. Can I use this on all acid loving plants like the red robin, fan palm, acer and hydrangea? Or should I not even bother and just use miracle grow all over?

thanks for your help?

thanks for some replies.

Would a jasmine plant spread itself so much?

if it were ash tree seedlings it might explain why the spread?

Hi

I am new to this forum so any help will be appreciated.

A couple of years ago I bought a well established jasmine plant that I wanted to trail my fence. I planted it and it was doing well until the bad winter we had.

It appeared to die back leaving just a stem. It came back the next year but never prodcued any flowers.

I looked after it and this year it is stronger than ever and I was hoping to get some flowers.

However I have noticed all over my garden I have similar smaller plants growing that are difficult to pull up.

With this spread I am now questioning if I have a weed problem. Please see the pictures.

Any help appreciated.

Luke
