What's the difference between....

Posted: 26/02/2016 at 09:58

I bought a bag of Perlite, thought I'd try it, it was cheap from Amazon, I didn't think of it being so light, when it arrived the bag was almost as tall as me. I tried it on top of seeds but don't like it, so wil mix it in the compost. I have enough to last a life time.

Probably the best bet is buy the best you can afford, read reviews on Amazon. you need to put barriers around or the thing will go Willy nilly over everthing. It won't avoid the dog do, don't think they are smell sensitive

They need to have access to a socket, they come back home when they need recharging and dock themselves.

thats as much as I know about them, not much help.

GW magazine subscription

12 issues for 25.00 is good but they want your credit card number up front ready to take next years out at full price. 

i never used to shop in Tesco either, but do have a Tesco credit card and mobile phone, that makes enough vouchers for my RAC subscription and GW mag every year.

 

Snowdrops in the green

I saw an RHS gardener on TV who said he always waits until the green has died down before moving then as the roots can break. 

 

Hydrangea

Same here SGL, only one year I cut mine back early and all the top buds went black in the frost and I had to do them all again, won't even start till towards the end of March. I wouldn't move that one until end of March if no frost.  I have never fed a hydrangea, unless you want it to stay blue then you can buy some liquid to keep it blue.

It will be two years probably, before they flower, they are very slow growing from the start.

Astrantia seeds need cold so best sown in Autumn out in a cold frame.

You could try putting them in the fridge now for 6 weeks, don't expect flowers this year though, I doubt they will be ready.

I planted mine this week indoors, they are quite slow this time of the year but some have made a start they get on  when the weather warms up a bit.
