Talkback: Taking geranium cuttings

Is there a reason for planting several cuttings in the same pot - apart from space issues is it ok to give each cutting it's own pot so there's no need to re-pot later?

You can do but the pot needs to be small you dont want a single cutting sitting in a 3 inch pot of damp compost for example the idea of putting lots of cuttings  together is that not all root so it saves on space, compost etc

O.K I give up trying to post photos - I have posted my video instead - I hope you enjoy a wander around our garden!

Pam-think I have got it-you can link back to your photobucket albums by posting the link

then you highlight that link, click on the link symbol next to the smiley icons in the bar above-a box comes up you enter the url then the link is completed.

Does that make sense?-or you can up load individual pictures your the image symbol

Keeping Chickens

We have 3 hens, a black rock, a northumberland blue and a sussex white. We got them at POL May 2011 and they lay between 2 and 3 eggs per day. They are such characters, great fun and really bring our garden to life. They love 'scratting' around in the garden when we let them out of their run. We don't free range them all of the time as we know there are foxes in the woodland nearby.

I wondered if I could ask a garden/chicken question? Our lawn really needs some attention. I'd like to feed it and also apply some lawn weedkiller but I'm guessing the products will be toxic to chickens? Does anyone know if there are any lawn products which are safe to chickens?

I don't think there is anything really-last year around weed/feed time I confined them to the run for weeks.

According to the instructions it is more lethal to rabbits and grazing animals-but better safe than sorry.

Unless others know different?
