plants burning but only in soil from outside?

Posted: 01/04/2015 at 15:38

Do you know the history of the garden? Could anything have been dumped there?

My garden was used as a dump for years

Now, after more than 20 years there are still areas where I wouldn't plant anything important. During that time it's had compost, horse droppings, wood chip mulch and assorted fertilisers. One area was the home of the compost heap for two years, today there are nettles growing there and they are yellow and sick looking. 

Some oil based dumpings take a long time to disappear

It's been a problem for a while Dave. If you get that long error message, hit 'enter' and it sorts itself out

The middle one is some sort of geranium, the bottom (probably Spanish) bluebells.

The top I can't see and can't enlarge

I've been confused from the start on this one.

Maybe a photo of the damaged plants would help.

There was a heat wave predicted for Easter. How's that coming along? Is it nearly here?

It depends on your garden and what you like matt. It's quite attractive in its way for a large or wild garden but seeds about and takes some digging up on heavy soils.

If it is Carex pendula it won't need cosseting.
