Can I butt in here please . I have this problem and  when I had an allotment there was always,according to the old hands there  one solution.  Wee!   I used to take my dog on a lead run  there and was always asked if I would let him wee on their piles of compost  It is a very old "starter"  the ammonia that you buy as a "starter" is called urea you will read on the packet.  Same thing !  Crude but very effective apparently, though I haven't tried  it myself   

See original post

 My OH wees  on our compost when he’s home.  Gets it going a treat๐Ÿ˜€ of course, we do live in a very remote place where he would never be overlooked, maybe don’t do it if you have neighbours forever looking over your fence.

although, you should have the right to do what you want in your own garden.๐Ÿ™‚

I took Worzle for a wee trip to the garden centre. Ate lots of chocolate, drank lots of tea and caught up on some TV.

 Which garden centre do you visit? Not Homeleigh?

Fuchsia 'display' planting

Does look like it now seeing close up. Bit small in the first picture.

So answer is...I bring mine into the GH for the winter, the leaves will probably all drop off or you can take them off, when you see it shooting out in the Spring, chop back to about two inches from soil. Keep very slightly damp, not wet though. It’s resting.

Not off hand, maybe a close up photo of the flower but there are so many all looking similar.

Seriously! Where do I start?

I would just try to get the grass cut one more time for the winter then wait until it starts growing again next Spring.

there are a lot of plants that flower early, if you prune now you won’t get any flowers.

maybe take some photos for ID.
