Advice on Manual Push Lawn Mowers

Posted: 12/06/2017 at 16:10

I am looking at buying a manual push lawn mower and wondered if anyone who uses one could give a recommendation.


I have been looking online and so far I quite like either of  these two.


Bosch AHM 38G Manual Garden Lawn Mower


Einhell GE-HM 38 S-F Hand Push Mower


Any advice appreciated

Sedum Purple Emperor - Advise Please

Thanks for all the advice

Sedum Purple Emperor - Advise Please

Posted: 11/06/2017 at 17:15

I have a Sedum Purple Emperor that was growing in a very shady area of the garden and wasn't doing very well. It was bending to get to the light and the leaves were very dull.


So I dug it up and split it into pots to put on my patio were it is sunny most of the day.


This is one of the pots and the sedum is very bent. Should I cut it to reduce the height and taking cuttings?


I have heard of the Chelsea chop but never done it on my sedums.



Any advice appreciated.

Another plant to identify please

The mystery plant is starting to come into flower since I posted the photo a few days ago.


Is this another type of orchid?

Petunia - Not looking very healthy

Posted: 08/06/2017 at 21:28

I bought three Surfina Petunias at the weekend and planted them out in large pots on Sunday.


One of the didn't look as healthy as the others



But I was expecting it to buck up but this is what it looks like today


.



I don't have much experience with petunias and haven't bought any for years but my daughter liked them. At least it got her out in the garden helping me with planting out the new plants.


Should I leave the petunia and see if it bucks up or should I remove the droopy leaves?


Any advice welcome.

Thanks for the replies.


My lawn has been a bit neglected for a while as I had an accident and fractured my hip so not a lot of gardening was done.


On the bright side several interesting plants have seeded themselves in the lawn and the birds love my garden now.

This plant has also seeded itself in my lawn. Any ideas?


Its got three flower buds that have yet to open so might be difficult to identify at the moment.



Thanks in advance
