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?

Thank you everybody. Looks like a trip to the GC to look at the Mahonias. Thanks again. Much obliged.

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

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.
