HAVE COMPOST SUPPLIERS UPPED THEIR GAME THIS YEAR.

Posted: 07/04/2016 at 17:15

pleasantly surprised this year with quality of some of the mpc's.  Wyevale own brand is excellent.  

I used a friend's B & Q compost  but not impressed.   last year's so not sure if they have improved theirs.

is this view shared?  Are composts getting better?

Now that's good KT53 

there are bsrgains out there folks....just pluck up a little courage to ask for discount .  Esp if buying more than one or two, or if price is a little high or slight imperfections. Always with a cheeky smile.  Try it

Enjoyed the brilliant sunshine ........clipped/shaped some evergreens.  Did my good turn and nipped over to remove an old sycamore for next door.  Got a couple of lagers for my efforts but it really was enjoyable 

Teasing roots

Learned the lesson a few years back.....grew Spartium Juncium.  Loved it....a summer flowering broom....but suddenly it blew over.  Huge top but roots had grown round and round.  

I always loosen roots and soak roots.

Have you got yours yet?

Fern growth

Don't worry TinyGardenGirl, 

it depends on variety, position, temperature as to when ferns start to grow.  

Like Nut, some started others not but not too long now.  I love to see the new fronds unfurling 

Non flowering Honeysuckle

Yes, lack of water Tetley  

this has been a regular question on the forum and usually the solution is to water 

i have honeysuckle too on a dry sw wall that flowered sparsely.  I make a point of watering it during the summer and it flowers well now.  two honeysuckles over an arch flower well in a less dry position 

 

Have you got yours yet?

Whoops! Seeds in ericaceous compost

Natbat, I think you have nothing to worry about.  Seeds and seedlings will be mostly indifferent to ericaceous compost.
