Mystery present from Mother-In-Law!

Posted: 23/11/2014 at 23:15

Was just having a look - several pages say it will grow in most soils, but can benefit from an occasional acid feed.  Might be why its not looking at its best at the mo.

Thanks - think it does look like Leucothoe S, though the one in your picture looks much happier than mine, haha!  Will hold onto it and find it a nice spot in the garden! xx

I hope it has surprises Pansy, but I really don't know what it does the rest of the year when its not sitting in its pot looking a bit chilly!  MIL wasn't too helpful - she just sent it home with my husband and said she would like the pot back at some point (I quite like the pot........).  Any ideas?

Hi!  My lovely mother-in-law gave me this plant from her garden - she has no idea what it is, and neither do I!  Would like to find out before I find a spot in the garden for it to call home!  Many thanks xx

Hi!  I planted a young Gunnera Manicata earlier this summer, and its grown well.  I would like some advise on how best to protect it over winter.  We are in the Midlands, so although it is planted in quite a sheltered spot, it does get frost and potentially quite cold.  Just want to give it the best chance or surviving the winter!  Was worried about it rotting if I cover it with straw??  And when would you cover it?  Many thanks xx

To mow or not to mow.........

Just a quick question - we laid some new turf to replace an ugly patio in the middle of the lawn about 3 weeks ago.  Has greened up nicely and looks good - I still have it roped off to prevent dog/kids treading on it.  How long should I protect it for, and when will it be 'safe' to mow?  Thanks xx

No flowers on my 'ears?
