B&Q M.Purpose Compost Issues.

Posted: 04/05/2012 at 19:34
Well this explains why my dahlias have all failed and got green mould on the surface. I used the 3 for 10 B & Q mp, can't believe it thought I had done something wrong even though I have followed the same procedures for a good few years. So pleased this thread had been started and going out to buy different MP this weekend, does anyone have advice on which brand to buy. I used B & Q seed compost as well, some seeds have done well but others very bad.

All great ideas the gravel will probably go as we are looking into getting a conservatory so will need a sitting area, but can put plenty of pots on it. I think it's definitely wise to take time to make the decision but the curves are a must. Think I might spend the weekend marking out with an old hose pipe the shape and live with it for a few days, see how it works. Excitable boy you could also use the bamboo or willow screening and just tie onto the fence with wire. It's exciting thinking about what could be done. Thanks everyone.

Bind Weed

That's what I did weed killer, then whenever I see some sprouting I pull it out soon as i can it weakens the roots and the problem gets alot better. Don't worry it may look bad but it will not be forever

here is my garden would be very grateful for any ideas on what to do with the lawn. As you can see I keep widening the border out for more plants, but wonder if there could be something more interesting. Right hand side of the path is the veg patch, and at the bottom I will be removing the bushes but leaving the conifers up with tops chopped off, putting a new fence up and replanting. Excuse the weeds in the gravel waiting for it to stop raining when im not at work to remove them. Hope the picture looks ok had a bit of difficulty adding it, till I realised I had to make it smaller.

They are annoying I did cut it down to its base about 3 years ago it was very tall, then as you say it kept sprouting from the stump so I kept it relatively small, but it is just too much of a thug.
