Thanks everyone, Ceres, I had read that link but I have no idea what 'variety' I have so I couldn't really follow it . Dove, I just wanted to tidy it up a bit so I guess it is 'trimming'. I was really querying it because there seems to be some sort of fruit/berry on it and I wasn't sure whether I had to leave it til after it had finished.
When is the best time to prune a Conifer hedge please?
My friend gave me three pepper plants (in approx 3 inch pots) and already I think I have done something wrong they were looking dry so I watered them but now some of the lower leaves are starting to shrivel up and look papery! Am I over or under watering????
I have a lot of 'sow direct' seeds to go out but I am forecast heavy rain for a few days. Is this a good thing or will it disturb the seeds? thanks
Thanks everyone, so glad I have a use for my mountain of used T bags
Thanks Blue Onion, they are currently in flower, so wasn't sure whether to do it now.
Thanks WW, thought mud shifts sounded great fun!
Thanks also to Wayne
I have some Pansies that have self seeded over the past few years and although they are still very pretty they seem quite 'leggy'. Can I cut them down a bit or do I have to wait until they have finished flowering? Also, when would be a good time to divide them? Many Thanks
Thanks for replies, forgot to mention I use T bags. To clarify, if I save up, empty out, can I put on top of soil or do I have to tickle in? Don't have a compost heap.
I have noticed a few posts recently about coffee in the garden but was wondering what I could do with tea, (I am partial to a cup or two of Yorkshire ). I noticed an old thread where Verdon mentioned emptying out and sprinkling on ericacious plants. I am keen to do this but was curious, is it only good for ericacious varieties and what benefits does it have? Thanks
