Where are all the ranters?

Posted: 11/05/2016 at 12:23

Too many fat  labs around.  They will eat and eat and many owners take their dogs for a waddle.  A run is unheard of; a limit on food is unthinkable.  Owners and their dogs 

always had lean, fit dogs and they are much happier for it

De-Leaf my Bare root Rose plant?

Adds magnesium but generally is a great plant tonic.  Cheap from any chemist, one teaspoon in 1 litre of water and no harmful side effects.

I use it on ericaceous plants including blueberries and also on tomatoes Korno

Korno, agree with watering.  No to removing leaves...they are the lifeblood of your rose esp at this time of year.  I would also give it a spray of epsom salts ...not when sun is out....once a week for next month

cutting down greens of daffs / tulips

Posted: 11/05/2016 at 08:15

Tulip foliage seems to die down more quickly than that of daffs.  Forget counting weeks soon as the foliage starts to yellow you can safely remove it.

tulips will often be lost...always the best ones .......over the year so lifting them and storing them is the way to go as far as I'm concerned.
