do they spread wb? I thought they were annuals. Mine are in pots so they won't take over the world

Never heard that one. I would have thought you were right about the toxic.

Woodash is supposed to be good for someting but I can't remember what. 


Moving plants/shrubs. Help pls

Posted: 05/08/2013 at 21:49

it is a new language. you'll soon speak it.

I had a look at the photos you've posted and seen all hardy deciduous shrubs, these will lose their leaves in winter but won't die. prune/move or leave them alone in the winter.

Plus one herbaceous perennial which will be hardy, the one with yellow flowers. that can be split up in autumn or spring and the bits replanted to make a bigger patch.

there are a lot of things on youtube demonstrating how it's done plus loads of recordings of assorted TV gardening programmes. there was a series which may havebeen called 'how to be a gardener' or sometging similar with Alan Titchmarsh. He got right down to the basics in that programme and shoed how to do everything.

worth a watch.

I'm expecting mine to go brown with an orange fruit as I've seen n the shops but it seems a slow process. Tomatoes are ripening round them and the physalis have looked the same for ages. It's my first try.

Is my plant dying?

sometimes if a shrub has been cut back infection and rot gets in through the open wound. your shrub looks as though it's been cut to shape.

the pics a bit small for my eyes but I think it's Viburnum tinus
