Cosmos

Hi, I have planted lots of Cosmos seeds and some are beginning to bud but are very tall and leggy. Do I need to nip off the first few buds to encourage them to bush out?

Red Ants In Lawn

Posted: 14/06/2016 at 07:03

My lawn is covered in red ant patches, this year seems worse than ever. Is it because of all the rain? How do I get rid of them as it is looking messy particularly when trying to mow.

Any ideas folks?  

Tried and tested solar lights

I agree, you just never know how long they are going to last, no matter where you get them from or how much you pay. I had some from Asda that lasted for years and I have bought them from gc's and they have been useless. Could anyone tell me where I can get replacement batteries? as I realise these are not regular batteries. Thanks 

Small buds on roses

Hi Dove, they are all different types,  I just noticed that they were covered in greenfly and have what seem like, particularly small buds this year. Also, I do have occasions when some of my roses don't bud at all.  I don't know if I am killing them with kindness or neglecting to do something 

Small buds on roses

My roses are now budding but they all seem to have very small buds on them. Is this due to lack of food/water?  How often should roses be fed and with what? 

Which hand tools to use?

Posted: 16/04/2016 at 10:22

I seem to be very good at ruining tools in the garden  I can only imagine that I am putting too much pressure on things, for instance cutting too thick a branch with hand secateurs etc. I would love to know what you use, in particular, for generally keeping things neat and tidy.  I can never seem to get a 'clean' cut, which I know means there is something wrong with my blades. It  always looks so easy when other people do it! How often do you sharpen your blades?

Sowing Seeds

Posted: 16/04/2016 at 09:26

I have various seed packets that say 'sow direct', is this the best way or should I start off in trays? if the former, how do you suggest I scatter?  if the latter, is it important to use soil specifically designed for seeds or do you make up your own? many thanks. 

Sooty mould on Pieris

Posted: 07/03/2016 at 16:48

For the past couple of years I seem to be having a recurring problem with what I assume to be sooty mould (leaves look black and dirty) on my old potted Pieris. Any ideas why this keeps happening and how to solve it please? I have used Rose Clear in the past but I am not sure if this the correct product for this problem. Thanks 

Adding a thread in 'my posts'

Posted: 29/02/2016 at 07:10

I am sure you clever people will clarify this. Is there any way of saving a post in 'my messages' without having added to the thread? Sometimes there is information that I want to keep and the only way I know how, is to respond, knowing that it will go to my messages.

Thanks
