Thanks for replying Fleurisa and Smflyman, so to clariify S. are you saying I have to put the gravel and fabric at the bottom of the pot? Should I start off in small pot (as some suggest) or just put it straight into a large one where it can stay long term?
Thanks for replies, do I have to do anything about the wormcasts or will they be ok to just scarify over?
Thankyou for your replies, could you please clarify what it meant by 'good drainage', I have never really understood this term.
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.
