Buddleia turning yellow

Yes it is-you see it on old rocks and garden ornaments-comes in many shapes and forms-there seems to be society devoted to it

which I never knew until 2 minutes ago

You can but stump killer-have never used it so have no idea how effective it or how long it takes to work

Strangely enough had sausage sandwiches yesterday-aren't stones and roses a beat combo?

Not sure about spraying the mini-mini-plugs -praying may be in order-that seems at £4.90 over- priced p&p

Becks-what about Sally the psychic-or is that something different

Just had prawn sandwiches-courtesy of the kitchen

That looks like lichen to me-what I would do is take cuttings now-when they are rooted- grub that plant out and start again with a nice healthy new plant when it is at a suitable size

Becks-not boring at all-as long as you like a laugh

Is this the Derek Akorah stuff ?

Home-made compost

You are doing nothing wrong-but the garden compost you are using I would not use for growing plants but as a soil enricher

You can buy products to add to the mix to provide the nutrient but basic garden compost is low in this as you have found out-the alternative is to buy proprietary potting composts for growing-and if your garden compost doesn't heat up enough it may still contain weed seeds

I think someone else was interested in a seed-swap but it takes a bit of organising-perhaps at the appropriate time it might be worth testing the water so to speak?

Becks-what about sporty stuff?-Kate is the sports guru.

Sorry if all sounds fishing but just trying to find out a common interest-other than the garden of course
