Talkback: Feeding plants

I have barely fed anything this year as the thoguht of adding more water on the the garden seemed silly. I have used a bit of granular feed but I love a bit of mirical grow on my pots. it really does make your plants grow twice as big.

Jo, I have never known a year like it. Actually thinking about it my one remaining pot was nursed back to health as at the begining of the year it was looking decidily dodgy  and i thought I might loose it too. 

Normally I can be a bit smug about my lovely warm sheltered conditions in London and how well everything does. It has truly come back and biten me on the bum this year.

 i collect my snails and slugs up in a bucket of strong salty water and watch them fizz a couple of days later strain the liquid down the drain and sheels in the bin. 

I do struggle to squash them. The noise of the shell crunching goes right through me. Hence the bucket approach

i think I hate you all (sorry jealousy is so unbecoming

Not a single flower from my one remaining pot this year. The other 4 pots didn't make it through the winter. For the last 10 years or so I have always had the most amazing displays , In fact its only got about 6 leaves on it. I was hoping it was just late - like everything else but after being in Somerset at the weekend where they are all going mad, I think it is just going to be a rubbish year for me this year.
