Caring for Skimmia japonica

Posted: 07/01/2014 at 14:00

My plant has lovely red berries and is on the kitchen windowsill. Would anyone please be so kind as to tell me if it is ok to keep it there over the Winter months?

 

Thank you.

I'll give it a go anyway.My mum's are still going strong and they were not protected from the severe frosts and snow! Amazing plant for a so-called tender perennial!!

 

Thanks.

Kept my tender perenial in the kitchen over winter and now it is putting on a spurt of growth and looks very healthy. It is quite a large Nemesia and I was wondering if it would be okay to take some cuttings now?

Mystery Shrub/small tree

Yesterday I saw some lovely small trees in a council yard. The leaves were prickly and shaped like a holly leaf but slightly less green. They were in bloom and had a profusion of yellow flowers which were upright and rather conical. Beautiful and stunning! Would anyone be so kind as to tell me the name of this lovely shrub/tree? I definately would like a few in my garden.

Thank you.

Dog fouling on lawn and in the soil

Posted: 19/10/2012 at 09:54

Each day I find dog mess either at the front of my garden on the footpath or on the lawn or in the soil itself. Can anything be done about it? I never see the dog(s).

Orange peel cut up into tiny pieces seems to be working for me and looks quite decorative around my miniature roses.

Liquid Autumn Lawn Food

Posted: 27/09/2012 at 23:39

Does anyone know of a good Autumn liquid lawn food that I can use this Autumn to keep my lawn green until spring?

I used to use Benlate on my lawn in the autumn mainly because I keep getting small circular patches of diseased grass. This not only did the trick but kept the grass looking green and healthy throughout the winter. Does anyone know of a suitable alternative now that this product has been removed?

 

Thanks.
