Getting chilly now but, except for the odd shower. It's been good times lovely n warm..ish!

almost tempted at my gc by its half price shrubs.  I looked in again and tried to,convince myself I need these plants.  And then where to plant them?  a shrub I did want was not available.  I've got itchy spending fingers right now despite having loads of plants in gc, polytunnel, comservstory and outside to plant.  I've made a. Ew year resolution not to buy more plants,but that was intended for 2016

Funny though....I'm not aware of any bees, butterflies on osteospermums..  Not sure they are brilliant for wildlife but humans ....the most important of wildlife! 'em 

plenty of wildlife experts here though so I'm sure one of them will comment 

When to plant out...

Mycchorizal fungi is recommended for everything now it seems.  I think it is helpful for shrub planting.   I would always use it for planting heathers. 

am I the only one not to use bonemeal as an individual product?   I prefer a balanced fertiliser like fish blood and bone 

Hydrangea Advice

Posted: 16/01/2015 at 07:58

Martin,hydrangeas do enjoy plenty of water.  maybe some extra water during summer will help.  I have a hydrangea in a dryish spot and I need to water it regularly during summer.  My recently acquired hydrangeas have better conditions

A big hole has,opened up near one of our major roads .......old mine workings in the area.  I will do a Dukes of Hazzard and fly over it
