disappointing spuds

It happened to me too when I boiled them too hard. Have cooked some tonight bringing them to the boil then turning down the heat to just a simmer, they are perfect.

Sick Rose

Judging by the gnarled bud union and the amount of lichen, these must very, very old roses. If they were mine, I would replace them with new ones. But some will probably have more knowledge and know how to remove the lichen to give them another chance.

Mine are about 4' tall and very bushy. I don't think they will get any bigger and are about the size it said on the label. The normal ones I used to have grew to about 8' or more. Obviously when grown in a pot this will restrict their roots and keep them smaller.

Clematis macropetala...is it dying?

Posted: 25/06/2014 at 20:00

One of mine did that and I chopped it off at ground level and forgot about it, thinking it was dead, now 2 yrs later it has sprung up again and is full of flowers. Also, to keep the roots cool, plant a bushy perennial in front of it to give some shade.

Tips on de-potting a Magnolia

Posted: 25/06/2014 at 19:55

Can I add that you should check what variety it is, some grow quite huge when in the ground, so choose your site accordingly. I bought a so-called dwarf magnolia years ago, it is now about 8 meters tall and 4 meters wide!

Can't add anything to the excellent advice given above, Mike, but I do wish you well!

It looks like it's flowering to me! I have one, will keep an eye on to see if it does the same.
