Poorly Cosmos

Thanks. I will try the tomato feed although I am still confused about the watering, some say they like water, others not. Is it a case of watering only when they look droopy?

Will give it a go Verdon, any idea what this even is? 

Pole for washing line

Posted: 04/08/2015 at 13:59

Thanks for replies, Dove I can not have a retractable because the tree that I am currently using is totally rotten and falling down so I will unfortunately have to put a pole in it's place. I did look at the 2.4 metre post but did't think it would be tall enough once it was in the ground but if it is that height after being 'planted' it would be fine. The reason it has to be so high is because the other end is attached up high on a tree and if it is any lower it drags in  the lawn.

Runnybreak and Verdon Thanks, I will try and source builders/metal merchants.

Totally agree about washing on a line, love to watch it in the breeze, and today is a very good day for it.

Thanks for replies, Verdun,  I have tried logging in and out but this doesn't help, once I am 'shut out' it can take days to get back in. I seem to be on advanced editor but have no idea what this means  

Pole for washing line

Posted: 04/08/2015 at 10:24

I am trying to find a metal pole for a new washing line but need one at least 10 feet long because I eventually want an 8ft line and I am aware that it needs to go in the ground a couple of feet. I have considered a scaffold pole but am not sure how I would attach the line. I would be very interested to hear from anyone that has ideas on washing lines. Just to let you know, I am not a fan of rotary lines. Thanks

Help needed!

I have recently been having a problem posting. I am able to sign in, but where my name appears to reply, the 'box' is incomplete and it will not let me type, it drops to the bottom of the page and says' report to modifier. It can go on for days, but for some reason today it is alright. Why is this happening please?

I potted a Cosmos in a container a few months ago and it was really progressing nicely, flowering, bushing out, but lately it has not grown at all in height and does not look at all well  This is my first Cosmos, so I would appreciate any information on their likes/dislikes. Thanks

Hooray, I can finally post, seriously though, I sign in and then when I go to reply to a post the reply box is incomplete and doesn't have the 'box' around it and it will not let me type. If I go to type it says 'Report to modifier'.  Please can someone explain??? Thankyou

Poor Soil

Posted: 31/07/2015 at 19:33

In the Spring I 'topped up' a couple of borders with bagged topsoil from the GC and later put in some bedding plants (Viola and Begonia). The soil is very compacted and contains several weeds and I feel my plants do not look happy or healthy   Is there anything I can mix into the soil to loosen it up and help the plants. The Viola flowers seem particularly small and leggy to me.
