anyone have one of these?

Posted: 18/05/2015 at 19:03

My daughter bought this for me last summer, it was labelled Geranium, it stayed green all winter and is now 3ft tall and 4ft wide, not a plant for the front of the border!

Does anyone know what it is, and is it really a geranium please.



Camellia problem

They do that, its the wet cold weather, especially the white ones. I am in the mind to get rid of mine that are in an exposed part of the garden. We have already taken a huge white one out.

 Wherever you store your photo's, they never work on here, had them before.

If you want to put a photo on here, click on the tree icon at the top of your posting box and follow the instructions.

Its not the right time to dig them up really.

If all else fails you can buy a normal Delta Sarah,Morrison sold them last year, then look out for a 3 leafed cutting and do your own, it very easy.

root trainers v. pots

True, Edd, brilliant aren't they, I wouldn't use anything else.

If I get anything in biodegradable pots, or those mesh bags, I always remove the plant.

These root trainers are on their 4th year now, and will still go on for longer.


Guilty of overmanicuring gardens at the expense of wildlife?

Posted: 18/05/2015 at 01:04

maybe that poster should come down here Hosta, acre upon acre of space for wildlife, if I want to use a few slug pellets, drop of weed killer or strim the edges I will. Just google your post code them come out a bit, plenty of room for wildlfe to breed, chew, nest etc, its not all towns.

A pair of rodents will make 2000 in a year if not stopped, a pair of cats will produce nothing like that!

Lets get it into perspective.... dont let anyone make you feel guilty or obliged, do what you want in your garden, plenty of room for everything to live on this planet.

Advice please

I only use a sprinkling of chicken pellets on the borders, only once a year as soil improver, but lots of compost as a mulch, as Verdun says, too much feed.... ground rejuvenates itself if left alone.
