Buying plants on the spur of f the moment

Posted: 02/04/2016 at 18:55

I have dozens of impulse buys or plants I want but unsure where they go.  Hoping to lose some plants over winter but that hasnt really happened.  Large pots are the answer so that plants can grow on for planting later 

What's happened to the picture adding function?

It comes and goes on my ipad.  And the settings panel is a nightmare to use. 

to enable toolbar I have to log out and log in again.  Even then it is unreliable.

Camellia

Camelias need a neutral soil at least......janice, get a ph tester from gc.  It is cheap but will tell you if your soil is acid or alkaline.  

"Feeding this year"???    NOW  is the time to apply a sequestered iron feed and the rest. I think your plant is jusf starved of nutrients...the sooner you treat it the sooner it will recover, hopefully to flower next year too

Well, it was will it be fine or will it be damp for today. Some parts of Cornwall are fine. Not cold..its pretty warm......and it looks brighter.  Just that it could have been a really nice day but for that crooked bit on low pressure system. 

Had a load of planting to do this morning...not mine...so it is a nuisance.  I blame the EU

Roses........those over planted, usually ugly, shapeless, prickly stems ??ith "beautiful" flowers at the ends...... to make it worse, usually a whole bunch of them planted together.  

Janice, yes use that white gravel.....it helps with weeds and can set off plants esp those with coloured foliage . Good in containers too as an attractive "mulch"

Yes you can Sandy....and it will do it good.    camelias can get leggy if not pruned.

look to encourage a nice shape and then give it a good mulch
