Thanks Dove ,

One very silly point  chicken manure is it safe as chicken carries  salmonella etc 

See original post

 I think everyone on this site has used this, does anyone know of anybody dying because of it, I don't, my parents lived to 91 dad always used it.

If you look on the label it will tell you how much to mix into a watering can full of water, divide that by 4 and add water accordingly, you don't have to make up the whole 2 gallons..

My garden is full of plants, originally from Parkers, could afford anthing else, I originally had those plugs,or ones similar,  I'm happy with a big root system like that, I just carefully unfurl the roots, they will unfold, them pot up for a month, plant out, and they will flower this year.  They are cheap and cheerful, depends on how far you want to go to tend them. Make sure if they are in a tea bag material that you remove it all.

In a month they will look altogether different, the roots will have filled the pot. I couldn't possible have bought single potted plants for here when I first moved In.

For the past couple of years I've been splitting them yet again and giving them away.

Sorry looking plant - ID & pruning?

I think it's a Gaura, they should be cut back after flowering, so I wonder if it's cut right back now, you would lose the flowers for this year. Maybe tidy it up and prune it in the Autumn after flowering.

Please do keep us up to date with their progress, I'm sure they'll pick up. You'll be pruning them back before you know it.๐Ÿ˜€
