Aronia bush

Thanks for your help; will plant it tomorrow. Have a fruit cage and there's space for the pot in it.

My Polish dil says they make jam with it.

Have been given a small Aronia fruit bush. Know about about its properties, but what kind of soil does it need to be planted in, as I have bought a large pot for it. My local nursery told me the size of the pot, but had no idea what it was!

Is it the same family as a blueberry?

That's a great motto. Thanks

Thanks Tetley, I do talk to myself, so can blame Molly! Have got a hoe, so now have lots of ideas to move forward.

Thank you both for your replies. Will buy the blocks,  and look for a weeding tool, which will be very useful.

The birds eating at the bird table like to drop seeds and fat onto the gravel below. Grease balls are the main culprits. Lots of grass is coming up among the gravel; I don't want to use weed killer because of the dog, so has anyone any ideas as to how to stop this grass? I have a bad back and find the weeding difficult.

I've thought of maybe something like a tray fastened somehow under the table? Lost my husband recently, so it's up to me now to sort it out!

It's a big plant, have had it for years. The leaves aren't dropping off,just turning yellow. As I've said, there's a lot of new growth coming. Repotted it a couple of years ago so will do it again. 

Thanks Edd.

Thanks for your advice, Philippa.

Some of the leaves on my large Dracaena house plant have started to go yellow. It lives in the lobby by the back door, so I wondered if it doesn't like the draughts of the opening door, or is it lacking something? There are a lot of new leaves growing on it, so it isn't dying. Would be grateful for any advice.

Thanks both for your advice. Will certainly take cuttings of the argyranthemums as they were quite expensive. Won't bother about the other two.
