Hi. Is it okay to put mushrooms in the compost bin? And what about leftover rice and used tea leaves?
Yes, they do have drainage but I may have over-watered them when there was no real need. My over-enthusiasm to get lots of color in the garden has meant itchy fingers and the need to just DO something every day. Perhaps I should've let them be...
Hmm, they might be, just not sure...ermm, I bought and planted quite a few varieties last year but didn't note down what they were.
Edd, yes, they are new bulbs, planted last October. It's just strange as the other lot that I planted in another planter, have not bloomed at all. And these plants are barely 4-6 inches tall with blooms.
Hi, I just saw that my tulips are already starting to flower even though they haven't grown to a 'full' plant size yet What could be wrong or is this normal?
Thank you! That's a relief
Hi All, I have a question with regards to compost. I had a half-used bag of compost left over from last year and which I used yesterday to plant a rose plant (Snow Goose). The compost had a greenish mould on it. I didn't think too much at the time about this and used it for planting but now am worried this might harm the plant. Can someone advise here as to whether I should dig up the plant and re-pot it? And whether this mouldy compost can be used or should be thrown?
Hi All, I've just moved into a new property. I have quite a few walnuts in my walnut tree in the garden but don't know anything about when to pick them. I was told by the previous owners to pick them end of July and then dry them in the house. However, they still look very green and 'raw' so wondering when is the best time to pick them and how to dry them? Can anyone give any advice? I want to try and get them before the squirrels come around. Thanks!
HI all, I'm new here..also new to gardening Here are some of my pictures.
Sadly, I've forgotten what type of rose this is. Anyone know?
