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.


Rose changed colour

Posted: 28/07/2015 at 08:51

I planted a rose earlier this year (sorry don't know name) when it came into flower several weeks back it was the most beautiful pink but now it has turned white!   Will it ever be pink again?

Sorry don't know the name,  but it is one that comes out every year (approx 3 ft high), if that helps. 

Fencing Height Restrictions?

Posted: 20/07/2015 at 10:32

Hi, can anyone tell me if there is a height restriction on fences please? I always thought it was six feet but after having a friendly chat with a neighbour, (regarding another neighbour) they seemed to be under the impression that you can 'do what you like on your own land'  Surely if this was the case, we would all be plunged into darkness!

Topping off tomato & no. of trusses?

Posted: 20/07/2015 at 10:17

Sorry to jump in, but may I ask when you pick the tomatoes? is it when they are pale green and then bring in and ripen off on window sill? Can i cut off the vine with toms on or do I have to pick fruit off? sorry for so many questions   

Does my rose need moving

Posted: 12/07/2015 at 16:18

I planted several roses last year but one of them hasn't so much as a single bud on! Sorry I have no idea what it is called, the foliage seems fine but no flowers. Should I relocate it? it could be that it hasn't enough room to spread out, or am I being impatient and perhaps it will do better next year?

Hi, does anyone have any suggestions/receipes for my roses once I have dead headed? Does anyone make their own rose oil? I always feel so guilty if I just throw them out  thanks
