Bear in mind I think this grower is in US, maybe be different growing conditions?

Shrub ID

When I first took this garden on the weigelas had got really out of hand, I sawed them right off to almost ground level, the following year there wasnt too many flowers but this year they are loaded.

Talkback: Is it OK to compost tea bags?

Posted: Today at 00:59

When I get t bags from my dad, (he uses PG, they dont rot down as quick as my compost) i just let them dry off a bit and rip them open.

We use loose tea now, several to choose from in Morrisons, usually use yorkshire but it can be a bit fine 

Typhoo or PG all do loose tea.

Think I may have a go at your worm thingy Edd, do you make it and store it in sacks until you need it,

I do need loads by autumn though, would it work?

Ring stakes for Rudbeckia

Posted: Today at 00:50

Its usually very windy in my garden and almost everything has to be staked, but strangely enough Rudbeckia is one that i dont need to stake.

I do only have the Goldsturm but it is much more than 60cms. Why not wait until it grows a bit more before paying out for supports.

I make my own from sheep/pig wire fencing and bamboo canes.

Hardy osteospermum

Posted: Yesterday at 23:17

My pink geranium has stayed green almost all winter and has been blooming for a while now. Cut back it will bloom all year.

I have grown loads of Osteospermum from seeds this year, dont know if they will be hardy because I pulled all the mother plants up in autumn, as they finished flowering.

I find they can go leggy and woody so would rather have new plants every year.

They were blue and white, Sky and Ice I think they were called.

Wildlife Pond Advice...?

Thank you Edd! Very nice of you to say that.

I do get very passionate over my new projects as you can see.

That pond  is 2 x 3 mts approx. I was governed by the digger, he refused to dig anymore!!

Hi!  I am looking for a dwarf bird of paradise plant (or two).  I live in North Dakota (USA) and have only been able to find seeds.  When I ordered the seeds, I never got them.  After reading more about starting them, I would rather buy a plant.  Do you know where I could get one?  Do you have one you would part with?  I have the regular version and love it.  I really would like to try the dwarf version as well.  Thanks!


Sue, this is a UK site so I wouldnt think anyone would be able to send plants to US.

You may do better looking at a US based site.
