Posted: 05/07/2015 at 17:10

No, not for planting, just to cover an area and cover with gravel.

I'm looking to buy some weed fabric control, is 100Ggsm the best to have?

I'm not impressed with reviews of weed fabric from b&q, will probably buy from Amazon, unless you have recommendations?

Plant or weed?

Thank you, I didn't want to be fooled with, "but it's so,pretty, it can't be a weed."

Now you've said, I have seen the ones with yellow flowers and dark brownish leaves elsewhere, in neighbours garden I think. 

I might jus have it in a pot.

Would that be something that could over run a boarder? 

it's growing in a shady area of my garden, which I'm growing hosta, ferns and Christmas box.

Sorry this has uploaded sideways. I think it's an iPad thing, because when ever I upload a picture to any forum, this always happens. 

 

Anyhow, does anyone know what this plant (or weed) is?

It's nothing I've brought into the garden and seems to have come in on the wind. 

I would like to keep it and thinking of carefully potting it up

 

Thanks in advance

 

 

Growing Tomatoes in Pots

Posted: 20/05/2014 at 12:36

Great youtube videos, loads of tips I'm picking up. I'm going to change how I loop the twine round the canes from now on. 

I've been trying to grow tomatoes for the past few seasons. I have lovely healthy plants, but I never seem to have many flowers and hence tomatoes.  Think I understand now about picking the side shots off. So hopefully, I'll have a better year this year.

I noticed your 10 litre pots look taller than the 10 litre pots I have (obviously different diameters and height), are the tall pots much better for tomato growing?

Thank you for the replies and the information on planting them up to their first set of leaves Dovefromabove.

Tomato growbags

I'm about to put my tomato plants into large pots soon. To grow tomato plants well, do you need the soil from a tomato growbag or is a mult-purpose compost just as good?

Many thanks, Tina

 

Dreaded Dandelions

Posted: 09/11/2013 at 08:59

Hello

I have a similar problem, but its a neighbours garden. They rarely cut the grass and have loads of dandelions, but when they do cut the grass, all the dandelion matter goes up into the air and then settles in my garden. 

Cutting your lawn regularly keeps the lawn weeds at bay, but I also paint the dandelion leaves with glyphosate. The one I bought had a little brush on the underside of the lid.
