Bug on plants through post

Posted: 08/07/2017 at 18:58

They're not Ladybird eggs, and ladybirds don't hatch out looking like adults. I don't know what stink bugs are.

They all do that for start, they throw out lots of males, the females will come later, no need to worry.

Trailing lobelia

Yes it will is my answer😀 Grab it around the throat and chop, it will bloom again in few weeks time. 

Hot Composting

Posted: 06/07/2017 at 09:38

We've  got a source of pure horse poo, no straw, when we turn the compost its smoking in the middle, quick turn over of two months in the summer,  we have two, one metre wood containers, five big ex farrm liquid butts, and then put in into compost sacks to finish.


its amazing how quickly you can fill a bin, we also put out five big council bags for green waste every fortnight through the summer.  As Fidget says, no perennial weeds. I won't put anything to do with roses or brambles in there either, the prickles seem to stay.

Seed and Plant Swap 2017

Posted: 06/07/2017 at 00:38

You ask the person for what seeds you would like, but do ask in the private messaging facility which you find by clicking on 'message' under their post. 


Some people may want postage money, most don't if it's just for seeds.


when you have some spare seeds to offer, you just post here on this thread with what you have and  if someone wants them,they will contact you.

I had thought about suggesting berberis Lyn ... I love it ... but doesn't it need more sun than the OP describes? 


See original post

 Mine is facing North East, it gets early sun, that's all, then maybe the setting sun for a short time.


what I didn't notice until I'd posted was the the OP said it can be under 2' of water, I'm not so  they'd like that. 

Climber for dead privet

Nothing that you buy in a 3.5 inch flower pot will grow quickly and fill the space,  you could buy a rollsing for now, until the new privet has been planted and given a few years to grow up.


Wilco sell a good one and cheap.  Apart from that 15.00 for a honeysuckle is a bit expensive, it's probably only a few inched high. 


See original post

 I have no idea what my predictive spell was trying to write....whatever is a Rollsing😀😀😀 I did actually mean a willow roll. Which can be bought cheaply from Wilco.

What's this plant called

They grow from roots not bulbs or tubers.
