Echinacea problem

Posted: Today at 19:51

Dried manure if applied too thickly in hot sunny weather can be disastrous for plants.  Killed a whole greenhouse of tomatoes many years ago. Dried manure in the planting whole plus a thick mulch.  Hot sun the next day and the "fumes" we're fatal.  

Outdoors plants like Phormiums, lupins and others suffered badly with over use of dried manure.  Noticed this too with mushroom compost in the past but suspected chemicals ....possibly weedkiller remains......in the mix.  Mushroom composf now has less chemicals I,think so,prob not a problem now.

Over concentrated fertilisers or anything can be harmful .....little and often is better 

White astrantia

Nut, have to slightly disagree .....I have astramtia jumble hole.  Full flower now and has been for a few months.  Not small though 

I am myself looking for another white astrantia  

Richondac, why the need for it to be small?  Do you mean height or width or,both?

Morning everyone.  Rain overnight but not too much I think .  Bright and sunny but far from cold.  Not the heatwave of couple weeks ago but still very warm 

Local.....big chain...garden centre is advertising big discounts but these are only on plants either going over on not in pristine comdition. Otherwise they are very expensive.  No wonder we are going online.
