Astrantias

Lindsay, they like moist, semi shade, good soil and room to grow.  Mine do get plenty of sun too but they are in areas of good deep soil.  I tend to grow them with my hellebores.....as the hellebores go over the astrantias are growing.  They like similar comditions

What to feed veg ?

Posted: 24/06/2013 at 12:39

Hiya nin, yes fish blood and bone is perfect for all your veg

I,think fidgetbones is correct.......he seems to be saying "feed the soil" first and this is my thinking too.  Don't like Gromore fertilisers ...I,think they can be too strong and being artificial not to my liking.  Plenty,of compost, muck etc dug into your ground is the best way.  Plants in pots, however, will need weefeed liquid feeds summer long

New gardening programme

I know Fairygirl.  To think that Scotland may opt out of being a part of the uk is disappointing.  We need the connection with the scots, welsh and Irish .....

Yep, good luck Andy

I would like programmes on PLANTS....on new varieties. Features on plant types.  Experiences of growing plants.  The inspiration and joy of actually discussing and seeing plants.

Some of the names of forum member make me smile.  

What made you choose your name?  I know dovefromabove is a real name as is Fidgetbones.........???

What name could I have chosen for myself if I had the forethought to do it?  Clearly I lack the imagination of many of you......lol

What alternative name would you have chosen now?

Talkback: Lily beetles

Posted: 24/06/2013 at 07:21

Only seen a couple of lily beetles....never see many anyway.  I squash those I see.  You can spray and I do occasionally but best not to I think.   Tending towards thinking more of wildlife these days and awareness of chemicals used in home and garden.  Beware pests!  I still will use sprays if I have to ....on ants esp
