To feed or not to feed

Should I still be feeding potted bedding plants that are still going strong? I have Geraniums, N.G. Impatiens  and Fuschia. Thanks. 

Bark chips

Thank you one and all for your helpful replies. I will make a few enquires with local tree surgeons. I would imagine if they have been doing a lot of varying trees the chippings would all get mixed up together so it could be difficult to avoid Willow!

Did I read somewhere that if you were to fell and chip your own tree, you shouldn't use the chips straight away? that you had to leave them for a while?

Could anyone suggest good quality chips and where to get them please? I intend to use them to suppress weeds and dress beds. Thanks

Fence height

Thanks for replies, I will investigate further. I only ask because my neighbours garden is approx 90cm higher than mine so when he is over his side, his hedge is up to his thighs, but on my side it is up to my chest. Although this is fine at the moment because he has always been respectful about not plunging me into darkness (as we get on well)  he has put his property on the market and I fear the new owners may not find this so agreeable. So If for example they put up a 2m fence it would be nearer to 3m on my side!

Thanks for replies, I will get 'muck spreading' asap,  as to the bark chips, are there any particular ones that you can suggest?

Please can anyone tell me (a) is there a height restriction for neighbouring fences? and if so (b) if your neighbour's property is much higher that yours, does that factor in so that the finished height is at the restricted level?

Hi, having spent ages weeding around my beds I was wondering what is the best course of action for the coming months.  What is good for the plants?  ie, do I need to put down well rotted manure for the winter? and should I put something down such as bark to keep the weeds down?

Many thanks

Replenish soil

Thanks for replies, Borderline, may I ask, when you mention 'any good compost' does that mean a multipurpose  compost?

Whilst weeding I have inevitably removed some soil and would like to replenish and was wondering which soil to purchase. Is it just topsoil I need? or should I be adding something else in?

Abutilon potting on

Thanks for reply Philippa. I only bought this about ten days ago and it had lots of buds on but they do not seem to be opening and it just looks miserable.  I thought I would try to pot on but am not sure what type of soil to use.
