I am interested in purchasing an Acer which I intend to grow in a pot. Could anyone please recommend an attractive red one that does not grow too big? Also, could you advise on the best position, soil and feed for it?
I usually start my lawn maintenence regime during March ie, scarifying, aerating etc, but my lawn is still very muddy and has wormcasts. Is it ok to go ahead with this at the weekend or should I wait?
Thankyou Dove for the very swift reply and for the excellent link, that is just what I needed.
Can anyone please tell me how to 'repoint' inbetween my patio slabs, some of the mortar seems to have worn away and could do with replacing.
Hop along, may I ask how you take cuttings from these? and is it best done in the Autumn or can I do it any time?
Thankyou for the links and ratio.
Having read how useful epsom salts can be to some plants, I was wondering if anyone knew an economical way to buy it rather than a small pot from the chemist at £1.50. Also could you please remind me the ratio for this please.
Thanks for the advice, I will get 'tickling' when the weather is a bit more settled.
Thankyou all for your replies, may I ask when would be a good time to start using FB and B? and is it o.k to use around all garden plants and with all soil types? Mine is chalk.
I have noticed a lot of people mention that they use blood fish and bone. Could someone tell me what are the benefits of it? and when and how to use it please? I confess I have never used it because I was led to believe it attracted cats because of the 'fish' element, is this just a myth?
