Noisy Mower

Thanks for replies everyone. I think I do have a booklet somewhere. I never contacted the manufacturer originally because I believed it was something I may have done wrong when setting it up  I just wondered if there was anything  I could do to sort it but I will consult the booklet.

Cosmos from container to border

Thanks for replies everyone, Verdon, no smell of chocolate. Oh well, shame they don't come back but I will definitely be getting more next year as this was my first time with Cosmos.

Hi, I have a Cosmos (sorry, no idea of name) successfully growing in a pot but I would like to put it in the garden. Is this a good time to do it (whilst still in flower?) and also, am I right in thinking it will come back next year? or does that depend which variety it is?  Thanks

My Mountfield petrol mower, is always making a strange 'popping' sound and never seems to run smoothly. It has been like this since I bought it. I have heard that it could be to do with the 'mixture' but have no idea what this means  I have replaced plugs and filters in the past but it still does it! Any advice appreciated thanks.

Repotting an Orchid

Only once a week with a little water in the  bottom of container which is what I have been doing since I got it and it was fine until recently.

Sorry, I forgot to mention, I agree with you Verdon about not knowing enough about the hardiness of new varieties. Has anyone had any success with the Magicolors range? they are very pretty.

Thanks for replies, I have been looking (on line) at lots of Hebes and they are all lovely I am particularly drawn to Hebe Rhubarb and Custard at the moment but I am sure I can be tempted by others!

I am keen to purchase more Hebes and would be very interested to know what your favourites are. I am particularly looking for one with purple foliage and possibly a dwarf variety as I don't want it taller than approx 120cm. Thanks

Repotting an Orchid

Hi Pansy, unfortunately we have not had much sunshine lately, so I do not think that is the case. I had put it into the conservatory because it had been nice and warm in there, but all of a sudden the temperatures have dropped so I removed it from there. It was so nippy last night I was tempted to put the heating on  but cosied up under my fleece throw instead.

Thanks for replies, Pansy yours is lovely.

I believe I have now identified my Orchid as a phalaenopsis (saw some at the GC) I think you are all correct that re potting is not the answer, but it is definately poorly  The leaves have started to form white patches on them. I think maybe it is the sudden drop in temperature.
