Thanks Erics Mum.  I must admit I haven't been very regular about the feed.  I will put the bottle of feed where I can see it - and I WILL use it!.  Mags

will my orchids flower?

I have a Phalaenopsis and an Epidendrum Ciliare (I think), both given to me last Christmas. Both have grown new leaves. Should I be doing anything with them to encourage flowers? I've never had orchids before and have already founds that they seem to prefer different conditions.  Thanks. Mags

Now my crown imperial flowers have withered should I cut of the top of the flower stem.?  Should I give them a feed, if so what sort of thing should I use?  Many thanks, Maggie

My coleus is on the patio table and is starting to produce flowers.  Now the nights are cooler should I move it indoors? I would prefer my unheated porch (faces north-north-west) or it would have to be east facing patio window?  Thanks for advice, Mags

Can I use the compost from this years tomatoes from in troughs of multi-purpose compost to plant my strawberry runners into?   

What do you have in a cold frame currently ?

Posted: 14/06/2016 at 14:31

I have chillies in mine. They are Hot Patio Sizzle, a small variety and won't grow very tall.  Always do well that way.   Also  2 tomato plants in pots with that section of lid removed.  And I have just sown foxgloves seeds into a tray which the packet suggests to start in a coldframe.  Good luck with your coldframe.  Mags
