Lyn, no I dont feed too much either. During the summer a seaweed spray though on pot plants, tomatoes, etc. is about all.   Feeding the soil...mulches etc.,....is better.  

No passport needed for you Lyn...you're more than welcome

There will be lots of completely different opinions about this

however, no I would not rake, scsrify or do amy rough work on your lawn now greencab.  I would re seed bare patches and work well into soil/sward

If your lawn is established you can apply feed and weed now to excellent effect.  Make sure you water it well within a day or so.  And avoid applying directly in hot dry weather.  Ideally I would apply on a dry day after rain or after watering day or so before

Hiya Phil

I grow several osteospermums .....they usually survive winter down here (west cornwall)

no, they dont seed but cuttings are very easy.  Depending on variety some will layer themselves...e,g, cannington roy and tresco purple....or you can assist this  process by pegging a stem or two down into the soil.  

Cuttings can be taken from early spring through to autumn and root quickly.  Cuttings will make flowering plants for the following year.

Fishy....lovely looking plant but give it a home in your garden and you will be weeding forever.

Cuttings

I think it's simple.....less chance of over watering, better drainage and possible emerging roots prefer limited space.  Plants do seem to root better on the outside of the pot rwther than in the middle.

rooted plants do not stay in their nursery pots/trays for long ...for me.  As soon as roots are seen they are transplanted into fresh pots, into the centre where plants then conversely prefer to be
