Who cares?

Would it work if I put fleece on my raised bed to warm the soil? I was hoping to put in first earlies this weekend or they are in danger of becoming first lates!!!
Would recovering them with fleece help them get started? I am in Hertford shire.

Covering with fleece now is pointless-they will be what?- 4 inches deep?-no frost at this time of year will penetrate that-fleece is to protect emerging shoots-will not warm up the soil

Plant in the coming days -it is set to get warmer

Potatoes are slowly chitting but should we wait to plant them with this unusually cold spell?

Warming up soon-by the weekend-this is a good planting time

Hard Pruning Hydrangea

If you hard prune it- you will have no flowers at all this year

Take out say 50 % this year and the rest next year-so in 2 years time you will have the bush you want

Or you can can sacrifice this year's flowering completly

Leylandi replacement

How long have they been in?

Do you want to the work yourself?-they are not easy to remove.

And the soil will need a lot of re-nourishment

It is a big job-you may need a professional.

Dry tips on house plants

It could also be over-watering-they do not put on much growth in the winter and only really start getting going now-only water when needed even to the point they wilt-rather than on a regular basis

More house plants are lost through over-watering than anything else
