Hi gina65compton

Very interested to know what plants you use in your hanging baskets, but what type of Sedum do you use as I didnt realise they were trailing plants.

Thanks again for all the great advice, much better than asking in garden centres where  it depends on who you ask as to whether you get the correct advice!

Looking forward to the weekend, supposed to be sunny in Oxfordshire so plan to spend most of it in my little garden. Happy weekend everyone!

Hi Lucy3 and Marshmello! Thanks for some very good advice. I would have mixed it with the compost so that would have been a disaster!. Any particular make of crystals you would recommend?

I plan to use water retaing gel crystals in my hanging baskets this year. Could anyone tell me how many grams of crystals should I add to each basket? The baskets are 12" and 14" in diameter. Thank you.

I want to buy an Acer from our local garden centre. It is about 18" high and looks very healthy. I will transplant it into a large pot and wanted to know if it will be ok outside now to withstand weather conditions. I tried with a very young plant only about 6" tall and after moving it around to find the most suitable spot for it, I failed and it died. Any suggestions please?

Is a mixture of bonemeal and multipurpose compost ok to plant a Photinia Red Robin? It it about 3 feet high and will go from a pot into the ground.
