How do you all know so much

Posted: 16/04/2014 at 22:44

It's a passion. I look back at posts I made 18 months ago and think to myself how much of a novice gardener I was.

The amount I have learned in such a small space of time fascinates myself.

If you are truly passionate about something you will make it your duty to learn more and more about that subject.

It applies to anything in life, this is why technology has advanced so much over recent years.

Struggling azeleas

I think Morning Sun is quite bad for azaleas. What water are you watering it with? Is it from the tap?

Azaleas like to be watered with rain water. Tap water is too hard.

Greenhouse watering

Watering from the bottom is best. This makes sure that the compost is evenly moist.

It also draws the roots of the plant downwards resulting in stronger growth.
