Small Wildlife pond

Posted: 04/03/2013 at 07:39

marshmello, why are you trying to put Erica off her pond? She's had lots of good advice (if you read the earlier posts) and I'm sure her pond will be ok. We have the same and have had few problems.

Hi, here is an article on how to get rid:

If they are amongst other plants, I spray the glyphosate using a window cleaner spray bottle, that way you can get small doses up close.

I don't think I've ever heard of them, Rose. Have you got a name for them so that I can look them up? Thanks in advance.

Perhaps she just landed in the wrong forum for some reason. By the way, my question wasn't meant to be nasty, just curious because it didn't seem to make sense in this forum. Sorry if I offended anyone.

Ideas for Hanging Baskets

Good morning everyone. After reading Verdun's comment on best and favourite geraniums I searched google for some of the varieties and found this website:

Although it's from the US and is actually more about pelargoniums (some people still mix them up ), it give some great inspirations on what to plant in a hanging basket. Just thought it might be of interest to some of you. It's certainly given me some ideas for my hanging baskets this year.

Has this got something to do with gardening?

Starting off Dahlia tubers

Yes, I see the point now. I might give it a try just for the hell of it, but I never seem to have much success with cuttings except for pelargoniums, they always seem to die on me, either dry out or rot, grrrr!

Starting off Dahlia tubers

What is the point of taking dahlia cuttings? The tubers that I dug up last year are so big that I can divide them into 3-4 clumps, each with at least one shoot. That alone gives me so many plants that I don't have room for them all. Not criticising, just wondering?

How do you upload photos

Posted: 28/02/2013 at 10:39

Careful, the site will not accept an image ending in jp(e)g, it has to be jpg. This happened to me just the other day as I tried to upload a new avater, very frustrating. If OH hadn't discovered the problem, I'd still by trying now!
