Feeding a Camellia

Posted: 20/04/2017 at 16:34

When is the best time to commence and stop feeding a Camellia? I have one in a pot and am never sure how to look after it properly. It never has a many flowers on it and this year they seemed smaller. I am thinking of repotting, is this a good time? Thanks

New Guinea Impatiens

Thanks for reply Lyn, Just to clarify, these are not the very young plants, they are in 13cm pots. Should I leave them in the original pots (easier to bring in and out) for a while or should I put them in their new pots and bring in at night? Is central heating a problem? what sort of evening temps are acceptable? Sorry for so many questions

New Guinea Impatiens

Just returned from GC and had to purchase my favourite bedding plant N.G. Impatiens. This is my third year of buying these as they never fail to deliver. I am aware it is a bit early to put them out yet so was planning on potting up and maybe putting them out in the day (if not too cold) and bringing in to an unheated greenhouse at night. Would this be ok? Also purchased Geraniums and was planning same method.

Metal paint suggestions please

Thank you for swift replies everyone.  I thought that might be the one. I have used it in the past but somehow deviated to a different one which has been very poor. Back to Hammerite it is. Thanks

Metal paint suggestions please

I have a cast metal patio set (table and four chairs) which I need to re paint (white)  and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good (tried and tested) metal paint. The one I used previously despite saying non rust/peel etc.seems to have done just that!

How to care for Cordylines

I have a couple of 'red'  Cordylines (sorry can't find label) in pots that are not looking great ( dry faded leaves at bottom) is this normal? if so, do I cut them off? What is the best way to look after these plants with regard to feeding etc. thanks.

In the garden centre they were selling reflective tape which is supposed to discourage birds. I did purchase a roll but I have not used it yet.

Thanks Verdun, sorry, I should of mentioned, it is in a pot in a fairly sunny position. Do you think I should divide it? if so, how do I go about it please?  Will it also need a specialist feed to remain blue like a Hydrangea?

I bought one of these last year but it seems to have now gone green. Do I need to do anything or will it be more colourful later in the year?
