vine weevil

I use it on my fuchsias in pots, it does work very well, definitely not on strawberries I wouldn't want to eat it.

they don't fly, but boy can they walk miles!  They all lay eggs as well, no male or females.

Are the 'experts'  who are selling these tiny plants T&M by any chance?

i am not sure you will get very good advise from them. Could be wrong though, but I think they are very expensive for what they are.

Bit too early there Dickie, try again at the end of March, they'll be ok then.

I am not sure it's even going to be warm enough to grow them here at all, I used to see them when I lived in London.

I live in a wild windy exposed place, can't grow them at all, the only one that does any good at all is in full sun. incidentally they weren't free, our garden centre has little beauties for sale at one pound each. 

You will see how they turn out, after you've kept them for a year or two, have you got a greenhouse or conservatory to keep them in.

I used to have one similar, donkeys years ago, that was a real bargain, I love it too.

I enquired about a poly one and even the seller said don't buy it if you live in a windy are. Which I thought was very good of him.

mine are metal framed and glass, never lost one yet, although in very high winds a while ago a panel did just crack right across the middle, wasn't toughened glass though so my fault.

I may pop up and get some Hosta, if I don't get any.

When will people learn the difference...

Not this site, Hosta, another one. Alls well now though, as I said, i was the only one missing out.


 

Hydrangea is it too early to prune

I won't do any of ours until at least mid March. We always have late frosts. The top buds go black, then you have to do it again, as they are late flowerers you might just as well be safe than sorry, they will all bloom eventually so no point in rushing into it.
