Oh no.....NOT AGAIN

Posted: 01/02/2016 at 22:13

Tetley, Dinah has just told me to buy more plants so what can I do?     However I am overwhelmed by your kind offer.....cuppa too 

(expecting to be treated to a meal tomorrow so I will save some cash for more plants    If I don't buy Big Issue this week I can save even more ....always solutions)

 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Used growbags

Dago, a big false economy to use grow bags for a second year.  Why?  They are cheap. Best to use them as mulches...as already said 

Iris flowering - is this a problem

GG, no these plants are in a minimum 1litre size and pretty cheap too.  Always have great plants from them.  However, I will take your advice and open the "album of the fabulous things"..........I do have lots of photos of me

Well said and worth checking now Philippa.....I do the "gentle tug" thing on susceptible plants at this time of year.  Lots of nasties have enjoyed this winter.  

Holly tree, cematis montana and bird cover

LG, I think your holly will recover......hollies are pretty determined to grow.  

You want a lollipop.....not  offering sweets I hasten to add ......so I would take a lopper to it now to get a semblance of shape before new growth starts.  Wont look worse than it is now but in your head you know it will come good.

a generous feed and mulch too.

during the growing season just check on how it is performing.  Some shoots will prob be stronger than others.
