Talkback: How to care for orchids

Very useful and practical video. It would be of added use to have, somewhere, how to spot disease (insect, scale, fungus, spots on leaves, etc) and what to do about it.

There is a waste ground behind my back fence. An eco-friendly way of getting rid of slugs from my garden is to collect them by hand and lob them over the fence (though I'm sure they make their way back). However, I am left with a lot of slime on my hands after a session of slug lobbing which soap, bleach, lemon or vinegar can't shift. Only a pan scourer liberally applied will get the stuff off. Any less aggressive ways to clean off my hands please?

Talkback: Moss

I have velvet clumps of emerald moss in my pots and troughs. I'm tempted to keep them as I think they may retain moisture and reduce evaporation in hot weather. However, are they doing more harm than good? Should I pull them out?
