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.

Oh yes, Flowerlover.  Pot up asap and you will have 4 more decent size plants by early summer.  Keep moist

Camellia

Posted: 02/04/2016 at 10:23

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 

Garden design fails

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

Morning folks 

wet, wet wet......looks like our part of Cornwall is hit by a stalled weather system over us.  I guess the rest of you are enjoying dry weather.  Its just a narrow band but wont budge
