Please come back in a couple of months and let us know how it's doing. Where did you think about cutting it down too? 

Passiflora cutting

Posted: 09/05/2017 at 14:44

It is a very fast growing plant, but to grow fast it needs a very good sturdy root system, that doesn't happen in the first year. Be patient, pot on only when the roots fill the pots. 

If you were to buy one from a garden centre, it would be at least two years old.

I used this site, as I do for all insurances, I got the price down to £33.00 a month and that was with the company I was already with.

Have you read this, Hosta, it's easy to do, I could help you next time I pop up.

There is no point in doing anything with it, if it's been poisoned then that's it, where would you cut it down to, you'd have to go to six inches from the ground to get it to thicken up and hope it shoots out, but it won't, it's been poisoned! 

Nematodes are the best!!!

The birds must have pretty good eye sight to see a nematode!  You wouldn't be able to see one.

Are you sure that's what they are digging up the lawn for? Nematodes are microscopic. I think they are probably after other grubs in the grass.

I only ever buy Premier Seeds, I get them either from eBay or Amazon and the instructions on how and when to sow, plant out, heat needed etc are always on there.

Going to say it again....nematodes are the best! Perfectly safe for everything except slugs and snails 

See original post

 The nematodes don't kill the snails, only slugs.
