This is growing all over my gooseberry bushes.... will it kill them?

They dont seem to be growing nice new shoots these days.

How can I get rid of it??

Ive got Champagne Rhubarb..... lovely stuff, with sticks about 3 feet long, lots of juice and makes superb wine! Really robust plants about 4 feet across. A mix of red and green stalks so you can choose what colour you want too.

Cadging spares from friends helps too, or taking bits from their plants to grow on. I always take a plastic bag with me when visiting a garden...... bits drop off all sorts of things and lots of them will grow!  Wanted a Bay tree so bought a pot of Bay... and there were 15 separate bits in it,   Have just passed on the rest via raffles and pursuasion. Box grows well too if you want to grow Box Balls.

Baby Orchid What To Do ?

Posted: 02/02/2014 at 13:56

Is it a Moth orchid?  If so they dont like to be wet or in a draught. In nature they grow on trees I think, so that tells you. They seem to like to be misted with soft water       too, but not too often . Thrive on neglect really.

Winter work on moss?

I have decided that moss is indestructible! My patch is   on a slope.

                                                                                very sandy.

                                                                           always dry.. the water runs off.

                                                                             is fed mosskiller annually

                                                                              or twice a year if I feel moved

                   and STILL the "Lawn" is 90% moss!
