General purpose feeding

Posted: 16/04/2015 at 18:37

I have well over 40 hydrangeas here plus dozens of other shrubs, never fed any, they are all well over 10ft tall. Do you really need to keep chucking feed at everything, they dont do it at the stately home gardens. They have huge shrubs. Maybe I should?

A Rant

My daughter said that with a packet of petunias, when I took it out of the bin, they were in there, like the finest dust.

Help needed please with laurel hedge issues...

absolutely agree, chop right down, I would never have bought them in the first place, you are far better buying 3ft plants, cutting back by half on planting. If they have been grown in pots, tbere is your answer...these grow so quickly for that size tree they should have been in 2Ft pots, the root system has been starved.

they will pick up on cutting down  you cant kill them.  being so leggy has made them  weak and vunerable to pests and leaf drop.

Frogs and leaves

In the book I used when I made my wildlife pond, he says just leave it...who goes out to ponds in wild and dredges leaves out . Frogs breed in those very well without human aid.

Is this a marsh marigold?

I hate the stuff. I am gradually eradicating it but it will take a few years, never ever put it in the compost bin, it will survive!

agree the flower is pretty but when it comes up in the centre of one of your plants and covers  it, its got to go. make sure you get every bulb out.  I have tried Glyphosate   it dont work!!! its just back next year.

Unidentified seedlings

I don't  think they are any bulb at all because a real close up shows they are flat like blades grass, if bulbs they would be round.
