Rejuvenating thyme

I don't think Philippa's advice was against a shallow pot, just that it won't last as long. If you like them in the shallow pot keep propagating and replacing them. They'll look better like that.

Grit is what you need in the potting compost. Lots.

I've never done it to thyme but I propagated a dianthus by burying it in a few inches of gravel left over from concrete making. Very successful

Try googling silver birch poisonous to fish

I found this, a different species of birch but I'm sure there's plenty of other info on line especially on Koi keeping sites.

My first thought on 1. was armeria but then I looked at the leaves and thought bulb.

I don't grow these but I've seen them looking very straggley toward the end of summer. Maybe they need a haircut now and again. I'm sure someone will know how to deal with them

If you want to be inclusive leave out Royal and Society whether you have the right to them or not. You won't bring the youngsters in words like that

You mention the term green fingered. How about including that? It sounds more alive.

Inner leaves of many plants turn brown. They need light to stay green

Are they visible without moving other leaves?
