Repotting an Orchid

Hi all I have a Phalaenopsis Orchid that is in need of re-potting. When is the best time to do this?

Search for Senetti Blue Bicolour. It should be that.

It's only an annual but they do flower for a long period if deadheaded regularly

They tend to arrive in Garden Centres Mid-March down here

Please help ID this plant!

Big garden bird watch

Posted: 25/01/2014 at 18:09

My garden isnt very big but I do have a bird feeder and get regular visits from 5 collared doves and a pair of sparrows.

The odd robin appears on the fence now and again but never comes to feed.

Next door has big evergreen shrubs so there are a lot of Blue tits around too.

Slug nematodes... yay or nay?

I have to agree with Verdun. Picking them off in the night is the best way.

No compost reviews at B&Q

I used a bag of Jacks Magic yesterday to fill some pots with primulas and I must say the texture was amazing.

I'm pretty sure these plants are going to grow away strongly.

What a weird mild Winter

Lucky enough for me my garden drains extremely well. The benefits of living on the side of a valley I guess.
