Thanks Pete8 that's what I thought  

Dove Is it because the stems can get 'burnt'?

Hi, hope you don't mind me asking, but is it normal to still be feeding roses at this time of year or is it because this one is poorly? Thanks

Posted: 30/08/2015 at 09:36

Could you clarify 'taking the leaves off' please does this simply mean leaving on everything but leaves? 

Honeysuckle Training

Posted: 13/08/2015 at 17:45

I recently rescued a Honeysuckle Belgica from B&Q but have no idea where i am going to put it! I do not have anywhere that I can grow it up but was wondering if I could train it through something horizontally ie, inter twining through other shrubs or perhaps along a trellis? When I say I have nowhere for it to grow up I mean I have nothing of sugnificant height for it to grow up. 

When to pick tomatoes?

Posted: 13/08/2015 at 17:23

I know it probably sounds like a strange question, but at what point does one 'pick' tomatoes. I am currently picking them off when rich in colour but have noticed one or two 'splitting', is this because I have left them too long and perhaps they are over-ripe? Other than that they are very tasty! 

May I also mention my peppers, they are a beautiful colour but not much bigger than 2 inches, are they still edible or have I done something wrong? ie wrong size pot, not pinching etc?

Fox Mess

Posted: 12/08/2015 at 16:23

I know a lot of posters have problems with cats, but I think mine is a fox. I am finding mess almost daily at the moment. This is quite a new occurance and happens in weird places like on an upturned plastic plant pot, pieces of crock, and bricks. They seem to be getting braver as I am finding it nearer the house on the patio. I do not believe it to be a cat as I think it is too big! Is there anything to deter them or is it going to be just like the cat issue - NEVER ending? 

Salix Flamingo

Thanks NGLS, for reply.

Verdon, I am not sure I have room for it in the ground, I bought it mainly for the patio because I liked the look of it and they were on special offer   Do you not think they are good in pots? Do they need a specific soil/feed? Thanks

Salix Flamingo

Posted: 11/08/2015 at 15:21

Just purchased my first Salix Flamingo and was wondering what size container  I should pot up to. It is currently in approx 8 inch pot. Also any tips on how to look after it would be great. Thanks 

What is wrong with my Hibiscus ?

Posted: 10/08/2015 at 15:08

Still having problems with this!  Not only does it refuse to flower, it has hardly grown in height . It is green and healthy looking but only stands about 2ft high and 1ft across despite being approx nine years old. I have one in a pot that is very young and it is roughly the same size! (although also refuses to flower) and I do so love Hibiscus. What can I do to encourage flowering/growth etc.???

Planting Lavender

Posted: 10/08/2015 at 08:42

May I ask, is there is any particular  Lavendar you would recommend for scent/colour? only, I have noticed my neighbour's is a very dark purple compared to mine and hers is still in flower where as mine has finished. Thanks

Hope you don't mind me jumping in Beginners Luck
