Having done the scarifying and aerating several weeks ago I was wondering is it a good time to feed the lawn with chicken manure pellets? I had planned to do this much earlier but didn't get round to it.
Thanks Dove, what do I do with the cuttings, should I put them into water or hormone powder and pot them up?
I have a couple of million bells plants that have managed to survive in pots from last year but they are looking very 'leggy,' altough they do have green healthy new growth at the ends. Do I leave them alone, or should I take cuttings?
I too have this sooty mould on my Pieris, I did manage to get some of it off with a damp sponge but my plants are so big I couldn't possibly wipe down all the leaves. Verdon, may I ask what you mean by a systemic spray in a few weeks time?
Thanks for replies, it is potted in eracaceus soil. Sorry I am still not clear on this , am I right in thinking you only feed once a year then?, when link refers to 'no need to feed until next season' ?
This is the first time I have owned a Camelia and mine has just started flowering, could someone please advise me how best to care for it? for instance, should I be feeding it whilst it is in flower? It is in a container.
I have been fighting a battle with Speedwell in my lawn and borders for years and feel I have just got on top of it, however now I am taking on the fight against the dreaded Hairy Bittercress.
Could someone please explain why the new growth on my varigated Aubretia is mainly yellow please?
Thanks David, your 'Garnet' is beautiful and certainly seems very happy in its location. Do you give it any special feed?
David K, thankyou so much for the lovely photos, I must say your Acers look very impressive. May I ask what varieties/how old they are and if you have them in any particular aspect? I only ask because one seems quite happy in an open site whereas the other is more protected in a cornered site. If I have half the success of yours I will be very happy.
