Feeding camellias and rhododendrons

No Lena.  Just keep them watered.  I would feed in early spring.  Again in mid summer if you feel they need it.  

Planting Advice please 2 for sunny side

Pruning blackcurrant bushes?

Posted: 03/10/2015 at 16:54

Sally, I would look to replace it if it's an old bush and not producing.  The newer varieties are very prolific.  

Anyone done any gardening today?

A little bit of dividing but mainly enjoying sun this afternoon.  So hot.  can't believe it will all change soon

Thought I had a climbing rose emerging behind a classy perennial but, panic over, it was just a bramble and it's been pulled out 

Planting advice please

Medium?  7? Neutral but not suitable for ericaceous of course.....except for camellias. I have similar PH here and camelias grow well.  They are more lime tolerant.  Wonderful evergreens ....lovely flowers.

yellow wave is ok but Tricolour is better I think.
