Plug plants ,How much perlite to add to multi purpose compost ?

Posted: 29/03/2013 at 12:48

I have never used it either, it seems a bit expensive and always get good results with seed/cutting/follow on compost only.

Mines the same Maggie, the yellow buds are only just visible. As for deadheading daffodils, hardly any out yet.

Buying Plug Plants

Parkers although the last plugs I ordered from them, came direct from Jersey plants, so I don't suppose there's much difference in any of them.

I have over 40 different fuchsias, but not that one, had a look on the net but nothing, keep posting on all the other gardening forums as well, and maybe someone will have one.

Best dwarf pear or apple?

Posted: 28/03/2013 at 15:27
Would an apple tree and a pear tree fertilize each other, the reason I ask this is because when I lived in Kent, we had one apple and one conference pear in the garden, left over from the orchard, and we had stacks of fruit each year.
Ps. Morrison's had some lovely pot grown ones for a tenner this morning. I was tempted

Ask around GG or put your request on the seed swap, buddleias grow wild , they seed themselves everywhere, I am sure someone can supply some bigger plants than 2inches for less than 5.60

nettles please

I agree with Dove, the roots are shallow so will be confined, I should think a foot deep into the ground would do, and sides wouldn't need to be that high, as it spreads mostly from root trailers.
