Leggy Pansies

Posted: 04/05/2015 at 13:11

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

Tea Anyone?

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. 

Tea Anyone?

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.

Geramium / pelargoniums

Posted: 03/05/2015 at 13:15

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.

Thanks Chicky.  

I don't seem to have a lot of luck with Lithodoro, anyone know if they need any specific attention?

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