Bought a 'Daphne Eternal Fragrance' yesterday, it was advertised as a 'new' variety, just wondered if anyone has one of these and how fast they grow etc?

I got carried away at GC yesterday and decided I would 'have a go' at tomatoes and peppers!  I have 'Supersweet 100' and 'Sungold' tom's and 'Cute Stuff' peppers, they are approx' six inches high at the moment and in three inch pots. I was informed that the tom's will not require pinching out and that I should use large pots rather than grow bags. Please could you advise; when I should start feeding;potting on; what size pots (pref' in cm's or inches please, (don't quite get litres) ; should I be putting out in the day and bringing in at night etc. I have a warm conservatory I could put them in or an unheated greenhouse.  sorry for so many questions and any similarity to questions others have asked previously. Thankyou

Moving Hibiscus

Posted: 08/04/2015 at 12:34

I have a young Hibiscus in (roughly) a 12 inch pot ,I bought it when it was just a twig about a year or two ago. Its roots are now coming through the bottom of the pot and my question is, is now a good time to move it? as I seem to recall Hibiscus being very unforgiving. I only have one other (in the ground) which has only flowered once in several years  any advise on encouraging flowering would be appreciated. Thanks

Plastic Shed Base

Thankyou all for your replies. Sounds easy enough   I will investigate further. I already have a base laid with slabs and gravel where I am replacing an old  greenhouse do you think this would be ok to lay onto? Any suggestions where to purchase plastic grid system would also be useful . Thanks

I am considering a plastic shed base and wondered if anyone has used them. Do you still have to prepare the site that it goes on? do they last? thanks 

Scarifying and wormcasts?

Posted: 02/04/2015 at 19:03

I am about to scarify my lawn this weekend but I do have a few wormcasts. Is it still ok to proceed or am I going to encourage more casts? I seem to recall somebody mentioning 'too much' maintenance (I also scarified in the Autumn) might help cause the dreaded wormcast.   Any advise on a wormcast free lawn would be greatly appreciated!   Thankyou

Could anyone advise on sharpening Falcos please? can I do it myself or do I have to take them somewhere?

Is this Japanese Knotweed? - please help
