Lilac Bush Pruning

Posted: 01/06/2014 at 11:04

When should a Lilac be pruned? I know the answer is probably after it has finished flowering but mine never flowers due to the fact that I am obviously pruning at the 'wrong time'. The reason this happens is because I keep trying to keep it at a managable height/depth!   So please, could someone tell me the best time to do it. many thanks.

Could someone please explain what it is and is it a bad thing ?

Vibernum Disease

Posted: 01/06/2014 at 10:42

My neighbour's Vibernum is looking very poorly, some of the leaves have gone very brown, dry and look like 'lace' (very see through). I have also noticed that they are foul smelling. I am concerned that whatever this problem is could contaminate my plants nearby. How can this be treated and should I be worried?

Oriental Poppies

Posted: 03/05/2014 at 14:19

I have a beautiful Oriental Poppy which appeared all by itself in my garden a few years ago, it is now getting far too big for it's current position and I was wondering how I go about moving it. It is starting to bud at the moment so I am guessing now is not a good time. Are these moved as one 'clump' or do I have to split it up?

Too early for bedding plants yet?

Hi Fidgetbones, I have Geraniums, Diascia, Nemesia, Million Bells, Lobelia, Busy Lizzies and Petunias, some of which were intended for baskets and pots. What do you suggest please? 

Too early for bedding plants yet?

Posted: 03/05/2014 at 11:14

I have bought a selection of bedding plants but but have yet to plant them out as I am concerned about ground frost. Is it still too early? I am in the south east of England but it is still quite cold here particularly in the mornings.

Everedge lawn edging

Posted: 03/05/2014 at 08:14

I was very intersted in the feature of this lawn edging system and was wondering if anyone has it in place and whether they would reccommend it? I was particularly curious as to (a) what is it like to mow over (ie, does it get scratched and the coating comes off?) (b) does it stay in place or start raising up?

Feeding the lawn

Posted: 27/04/2014 at 14:29

Having done the scarifying and aerating several weeks ago I was wondering is it a good time to feed the lawn with chicken manure pellets? I had planned to do this much earlier but didn't get round to it.
