What type of Hydranger is this

Posted: 26/03/2017 at 16:47

Hi, my grandaughter has grown this hydranger from a root and doesn't know what type it is. I know it's a bit of a long shot but does anyone recognise it perhaps by the leaves. If not I think she will have to wait until it flowers and go from there.

Do you know this rose ?

Hi Butercupdays, thanks for your reply, everything you say makes perfect sense. I will keep it indoors till weather gets a bit warmer, then plant it out.

many thanks.

I'm with you Missy Krissy "oh sod it" is the answer and the more of us do that the quicker something will be done.

on that note " I'm out"

Hi Nora GW

i want to add that the adverts on the site are a pain In the neck.

They flick up and down, they interfer with one's concentration, and if you accidently touch one that's in your in the damn thing.

I know they are surpose to help with the cost of the website I understand that but I couldn't tell you what they advertise, because I will not look at them.

They do nothing for the distinction of Gardeners World, they make the site look cheap and detract from what it stands for.

Hi Nora GW

i am so relieved to know that other people are having the same freezing problem it has drove me mad more or less since we had the new website.

i haven't been useing GW website which has really upset me because the original GW website was perfect, straight forward and never gave any problems.

i really really hope you can fix the freezing problem and the problems I have had when sending I photo, it takes forever,then can be upside down or sideways, the message ends up on the photo with limited space.

i just got so fed up, I gave up.😰

growing rhubarb

Posted: 17/01/2017 at 10:26

Can you advice me, I have just bought a small potted early rhubarb plant which I intend to grow for a year or two before eating it.

i have bought a black plastic dust bin to grow it in. I intend to drill holes in the bottom for drainage, and stand the bin on some bricks to allow water to run out,

also put a few inches of rubble inside for drainage and stability.

i will then fill with homegrown garden compost mixed with grit to at least half way up Before I plant my rhubarb inside.

to any rhubarb growing people I would appreciate your reply and advice regarding anything you think I might have missed or can add to the plan.


Found some holes

Hi Joyce21 thanks for your suggestion, there are squirrels in the area so maybe your right, the holes are empty but maybe something else has taken the treasure out, but yet I would expect to see loose soil around but there aren't any.

We have set up a night camera so hopefully we will see the culprit.😉

Does anyone recognise this tree

This small tree was outside our building whilst on holiday in the south west of England, I could not find anyone who could tell me the name of it, so if anyone recognises it I would appreciate its name, thanks, sorry the photoes are sideways, no idea why
