This site is pretty cool to and also recommended on the butterfly world website as where to get the seeds from (they also sell them in their own shops if you are going back).

Natural Weed killers?

Posted: 01/07/2012 at 15:12

Hey All,

Just wondering it there is any more natural way to kill off weeds that have populated our lawn without resorting to chemicals? The area is where my dogs may walk so I looking for two reasons really.

With thanx in advance.

Now if anyone know how to propergate the seeds from one of these bad boys Id be interested to hear as I collected quite a few pods.

A neighbour had one and I know no amount of cutting back seemed to stop it regrowing two fold.

Im not a professional but it would seem its pretty hard to get wrong.

I hope that helps if no one else replys.

Apple tree dieing back

Posted: 29/06/2012 at 21:43


Ive had a good look over the tree - and tried to take some pictures - there are some leave growing back and I noticed only 2 small patches on one branch which has some white feathery 'mould' but nothing else.

Im not sure what sunken patches of bark look like and there is nothing oozing.

Thanx you so much for getting back to me.

Apple tree dieing back

Posted: 08/06/2012 at 14:11


I have an apple tree and for the last two years it has started to come into leaf and then blossom and then it dies back about 20% to dead wood (which doesnt then leaf next year).

I thought it was being strangled by a large bush growning under it (as well as 2 rose bushes growing up it) so I move the bush but is still died back again this year.

I dont want to lose the tree but Im not sure what to do - any help please?

With Thanx

Carol never fails to amaze me!

She gardens and plants up cuttings as she goes (and passes that all on to us watching)!

I wish I had half of her talent!

Dear Adam,

OK, Ive been waiting all winter for the seed pods on my <span class="header4Class">trachelospermum jasminoides to open (I thought it best to leave them on the plant as it would be best place for them to further develope and to be in the right conditions to mature).

<span class="header4Class">Today I found the seed pods had cracked and lots of feathery parachutes hidden inside with little brown seeds on them.  They are definately the ones from that plant.

<span class="header4Class">I dont want to mess up and have had little sucess with seeds so I really really want to get this right - what is the very best way to get them to germinate and grow into lovely strong plants please?

<span class="header4Class">Kindest regards

<span class="header4Class">Maxii -, Norwich.
