Morning folks 

Clari, it's all part of the education know all about that 

yvie, nice plants.  Thundercloud I like a lot  

lovely sunny and feeling warm morning following a wet night.  The rain has "lushed" my grass and pushed new shoots on all sorts of things. 

Enjoy the easter weekend everyone

My thinking re the ericaceous compost bit was not so much to do with acidity really Tetley except that mpc mixed with the other stuff makes for a nice  medium for planting. instead of mpc, for similar cost, I use ericaceous.  I assumed whatever conditions Melvyn had he was happy with re colour of,his hydrangea and wanted more of the same.  If I had some to hand I would have also incorporated sulphur chips if hydrangeas were blue.  

(Blue hydrangeas are impossible here yet most of Cornwall does grow them.  Cuttings of blue ones always take on pinky hues even in pots so I now accept it)
