What fertilizer to use

Posted: 16/09/2012 at 16:46

The problem maybe the other well established trees on a hungry sandy soil and they are taking all the goodness and moisture out of the area

It sounds as though it is too dry-not knowing the circumstances but does it get enough water and can you practically rectify that?

A general fertilizer-growmore would do- and a mulch next spring when it starts coming back into life will help-in the meantime water and more water-I dont think by the sound of it you can over-do it

Does that help?

What fertilizer to use

When you say not happy-how do you mean?

It is in the garden?

You have to consider that it will be shutting down shortly so any fertilizer applied now will not make much difference-also in the wild oak trees just survive without any help at all

Perhaps a bit more info?

Someone was looking for suppliers of schwhotsits earlier-that is good news about yours-two doors up their alstromeria is flowering again and mine isn't -I might be doing something wrong

Footy-all the papers make Nigel first to go -there is a bloke up the road who has no job-what are the chances?-what must it be like to read that you might lose your job soon?

Do not plant it out permantly-you could put into position but leave in the pot-then bring inside after the first frost

Bit of confusion here-a buddleia cut back now is unlikely to flower again until next year.

A similar thread here about rhododendrons-

I can recall other topics last year about daffodils in December-it seems to happen that every year that are some odd quirks- usually weather related

Glynn-no I didn't see it-spiders -yikes

I think with XF it is now over produced-all that filming outside and in the waiting area-when all we really want to see is people making an idiot of themselves-did I really need to know that " my daaddy" was in prison
