Thompson & Morgan - issues!

Posted: 07/04/2014 at 19:52

I wish I read this before I put my order in the post to T&M, it was a toss up between T&M or Unwins, wish I went with Unwins now. I hope the New Guniea Busy Lizzies from T&M are in good condition?

Hanging basket theft

Its because people who take them live very shallow lives and are incapable of producing something beautiful. It's just pure jealously.

Two more Vensus Fly Traps on their way

Just ordered two more Fly Traps from that nice nursery in Hampshire. Really looking forward to them coming, they will keep my lonely Fly Trap company. Last year my VFT did well in the GH keeping any nasty's away from my plants. So I'm adding to the squad.

It's Spring! I'm so excited, I have wet my Plants!

Thanks Nut, I'll give that a go. It's a good rose so I like to hang on to it for a little while.

Cleaning the inside of watering can rose

Anyone got any tips of how to keep the inside of a watering can rose clean? I have washed out the WC and rinsed the rose out under a tap, but still after a while the holes in the rose get clogged and is only spouting a third of the water. Most annoying
