advice on seed compost

Posted: 30/04/2013 at 14:52

If I were you I would take the rubbish compost back to where I bought it and complain. Perhaps they will replace it with something decent!

plant identification

Apparently not everyone considers it a weed, I have it in my garden and it doesn't spread very much.


What's the weather like in your area?

Do you really want to know?! One word: lousy!

Morning all, those kitchen crooks have posted again, moderator informed!

Another rainy day here, think I'll just sleep it away like yesterday.

Definitely not unfair GG, but absolutely to the point. This doesn't apply only to the UK either, it's rampant here too and I won't even mention the EU. And the worst of the lot are the so-called "green" boys and girls, most of whom don't practice what they preach!

I must be very oldfashioned because I tie mine together loosly in bunches each year and they flower every year without problems, I even tie smaller bunches in a knot without problems. Just don't tie them so tight that they can't "breathe". Thinking may have changed, but not necessarily always for the better (sorry, Liz). I wonder if those thinkers asked the daffs what they thought?

Problems with a laurel hedge

Posted: 28/04/2013 at 17:43

It looks like frost damage, sometimes the whole plant will turn brown, this happened to a neighbours hedge. But don't worry, the brown leaves will fall of and new shoots will sprout, they are very tough. As far as pruning is concerned, I can't help you, don't know enough about it, but I sure someone else on here will know!

Have a look at this:

Under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, it is illegal to dig up any wildflowers anywhere in the UK. We can still pick a flower or collect a few seeds or take a small cutting of common wildflowers, but only if there are plenty of plants there. There are details of the law on the The Wild Flower Society website, and they also have a Code of Conduct which complies with the law.
