Tea Anyone?

Posted: 04/05/2015 at 08:58

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

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
