Fertilize in Autumn, lime in Feb. Lime likes to go on on its own.Just sprinkle on and 

 let the rain  wash it in. Make sure you get the correct lime for your needs.

Fertilize the ground in the Autumn, sow the seeds indoors in April, plant out in June. Allow 4ft in all directions, they love to sprawl

Bekkie, those salvia seeds you sent me a couple  of weeks ago are all  up.

 Justin, The best flowers I had for bees were the Cerinthe, the borage and the scabious all extremely easy to grow in the Spring. The scabious were also covered in butterflys.



I am definitely sorting your branches tomorrow, I have had such a week of it but promise to do it.h
