Thanks WW, thought mud shifts sounded great fun!
Thanks also to Wayne
I have some Pansies that have self seeded over the past few years and although they are still very pretty they seem quite 'leggy'. Can I cut them down a bit or do I have to wait until they have finished flowering? Also, when would be a good time to divide them? Many Thanks
Thanks for replies, forgot to mention I use T bags. To clarify, if I save up, empty out, can I put on top of soil or do I have to tickle in? Don't have a compost heap.
I have noticed a few posts recently about coffee in the garden but was wondering what I could do with tea, (I am partial to a cup or two of Yorkshire ). I noticed an old thread where Verdon mentioned emptying out and sprinkling on ericacious plants. I am keen to do this but was curious, is it only good for ericacious varieties and what benefits does it have? Thanks
Thanks that expains it Verdon, I am on chalk didn't notice that when I have seen them in GC.
HI Keith, RHS says.....Pelargoniums can be grown in borders or containers. In borders or beds, plant in fertile, neutral to alkaline soil. Most prefer full sun. Regal cultivars prefer partial shade and zonal cultivars will tolerate some shade.
I don't seem to have a lot of luck with Lithodoro, anyone know if they need any specific attention?
Verdon thanks also, just out of interest, what other 'blues' do you grow? as I am looking for more

Hi Phyllis, did exactly the same thing about two years ago, even though there is a warning on the packaging Check out www.pavingexpert.com/stains I tried the lemon juice and although it didn't get rid of it completely, it did help a bit. Good luck
