Need CPR for my strawberry plant

Posted: 03/06/2017 at 15:55

For a plant that size, I  would forgo the fruit this year and cut the flowering stalks off, let the plant build up bigger and you will be rewarded next year. 

Pond questions.

All my plants are just thrown in, they find there own way and my pond water is always crystal clear.

See original post

 How did you manage that, I thought you had to mix two together.

Leggy stocks seedlings

Posted: 03/06/2017 at 15:41

I don't  know what to say for the best there,  they are very leggy and weak, if you plant them out they will be chewed by slugs. I would try potting on in a little pot each, sinking in even more and wait until you have a big plant before planting out.

What are these and is it worth keeping the bulbs that didn't flower?

I agree with Nut. Look at the centres.

You really need to force yourself not to save every little off cut of your Hostas. , you'll have the same amount again next year. 😀😀

Linin terracotta pots with plastic bags

If you line with plastic bags, don't cut the holes in the bottom, cut them about two inches up the side, that way they will store water for longer.

What NOT to put in the compost bin...

Posted: 02/06/2017 at 09:38

What CAN go in.....Newspapers,  non glossy mags, or junk mail,  all envelopes, removed the plastic window first, cardboard boxes, sellotape removed. Paper hankies. Kitchen roll that hasn't been used to mop up blood from meat.  Hair From  home cutting,   Old compost from pots.  The list goes on and on.😀

Viola for 2018

Posted: 01/06/2017 at 23:35

Sow in a seed tray like any other seeds, but they wont germinate in heat so you may have to wait until September now.

when theyve grown to about two inches tall, or have two to three sets of real leaves, prick out and put into modules or another tray, keep potting on as they fill the pot or whatever you put them in,  you can then plant them out next Spring. 

Had you done them in Feb or March you could have planted them out in autumn around daffs or tulips, but with a late sowing you can't plant out until next Spring.
