sowing flower seeds

Posted: 25/02/2016 at 06:58

Hi, I would like to have a go at growing from seed (I have a variety of packets) my question is, do i need special soil or do I use multi purpose compost with something added? Thanks

Reclaimed chimney pot

Posted: 21/02/2016 at 11:21

I have acquired a reclaimed chimney pot which will look great in the garden, only problem is, it has been painted with a hideous terracotta masonry paint (very ginger) my question is, how can I restore it back to it's original colour? I was thinking Nitromors paint remover but wasn't sure on masonry, any other ideas? otherwise I will have to re paint it with a different colour.  

Thanks

Could someone please give me some tips on how to look after roses? I have a few DA's and others including patio's but I never get many flowers on any of them, (some none at all)   I love them but can't seem to grow them despite my efforts, yet people that just 'let them get on with it' get better results than me.  I have chalky soil is that a bad thing?

PS. I noticed the recent thread about 'unions' and mine are above the soil. Is this a problem? Sorry for so many questions.

Moving a Cistus

Thanks for replies, Dove, It is approx' half a metre high x 1 metre wide. I think it was only planted 2/3 years ago. It is a white one situated at the front of the house and does so much better than my pink ones in the rear garden. I only want to move it because my neighbours get more benefit from it than I do !

When would be the best time to relocate a Cistus? and do these take kindly to being moved? Thanks

Sorry to jump in Newbee3 but I too would like to own a Viburnum but was worried about V. beetle (my neighbour's bush gets it really bad every year! )  Is there any way of avoiding this please?
