Help needed!

I find the search facility the most annoying, you type what you want to find, that's ok, but then it  shows from the first post, so although you can go through pages in10's, it still takes ages to get to the last and most recent post.

Help needed!

Couldn't  you use the quote facility Hosta? Or am I not on the right track.

What has eaten my Lupin - I need to protect the other 3

Posted: 03/08/2015 at 15:31

Cut them off, lupin are finished now, they will come back next Spring, then you need to watch our for slug eating the new shoots.

Flowers finished ages ago, it's time to sow seeds for next years plants.

If yours were newly  planted this year then just cut foliage down and they will bloom next Spring/early Summer.

I have them in both sun and shade, they are not fussy.

Help posting pictures ..?

Mint hasn't anything to do with deterring rats. Tha'ts a coincidence, I have mint growing wild all around the compost bins, there are rats occasionally in that area.Not for long I must add!!

I use the weather here twice a day, job sometimes depends on it.

The weekend bugs need attending to, that is the time when most people have the time to put photos on and that's when it doesn't work.

Using the search engine, I find it wont take you to the end of the thread. ie.,latest postings.

Garden centre recommendations

Posted: 02/08/2015 at 19:00
I buy compost from a local centre, about 8 miles away but a couple of times a month I go to St Austell where there is a Wyvale, an independent GC and Pine Lodge, pinetum, where I got 2 lovely large pots of Salvia for 4.50.

Usually I pick up the odd plant in Morrisons, got 2 lovely Clematis, 1.79 each, they are romping away now and will get planted out next Spring.

I also buy from Parkers sales, I love them but let's not get started on the usual 10 pages about how bad they are, please.
