Reviving a Camelia

Posted: 29/09/2014 at 21:34

I have two in pots.  One is hardy. The other is a little tender but only to the extent of bud damage rather than loss of plant. So it depends on what camellia it is.  Although I think most are fairly hardy - particularly if it's already survive with neglect. If concerned give some shelter (eg near house wall) and bubble wrap the pot if gets really cold.  Agree re avoiding early morning sun if can - will damage the buds if they defrost too quickly.  Once it's got some leaves back and maybe a flower (maybe too late for this years buds tho) then might be able to identify.

I'd repot in, as rose mummy says, ericaceous compost.  I wouldn't put it in the ground though unless you know your soil is acid.  Choose a shady site.

Growing grass paths...

Posted: 23/09/2014 at 19:52

Hi Zoomer.  Will the paths be perfectly flat?  I'd so could try a cylindrical push mower (c£40 from argos). Don't take up much space, no need for power. On the down side, can't use when wet and harder work - but if you're at he allotment regularly then can use on dry days and assume as just a path there not much to do?

Don't think I'd like to look at soil through a microscope.  It'd freak me out!  Never handle it again!
