I hate complacent 'know it alls' who are dismissive and sneering towards others and their views.


and people who go out of their way to create controversy rather than discussion.



But I don't have to see it, the site has the technology to keep my forum cheery

What plant is this?

Don't hesitate to ask any question here Colin. There's usually someone with an answer


Someone will answer the feeding question but I don't grow things in pots long term so I don't know.

Very real Richard.


btw, I'm having great success with some of tour seeds and seedlings. Some are only ones or twos, baldwinii and ?Wedding Anniversary, might not be exactly the name, Twinkle's babies and songarica in number.  Thank you for all those.


Vince Denny cuttings and cartmannii seeds from other sources doing well also. It will be a clem-fest here soon.

Japanese Knotweed is rarely small. How sure are you? Many t plants have been mistaken for JKW

I have Bill MacKenzie up a huge conifer, never pruned, I could cut it off but I'd never reach the dead bits to remove them. So it starts flowering late May/June and continues forever. Buds, open flowers, white and brown seedheads up there now. Generally known as the Christmas tree on account of all the baubles in a conifer

yes, hawthorn is a native plant. It does flower but may have off years, blackbirds, fieldfares like the berries. It doesn't get enormous nd can be cut back any time. Did you cut it back last year, that may be where the flowers went.


Garden style and content is very personal. I love the natives and I don't kill things. I don't have a pest problem, I have a balance. My garden is not neat but it's not a shambles.

they'll put up with dry as well if they're completely in the shade.


Due to demolition of laurel some of mine are now in too much sun and wilting. They won't die but they don't look very good. I'll move them in winter

the things in the photo look quite healthy krysis so the soil can't be too bad. Don't worry too much about snails, they're always there but not the end of the world. You can garden perfectly well with snails around.
