How to make Viburum "Eve Price" flower

Posted: 28/12/2015 at 11:44

Tom spring is right time to prune so would contnue with this

does it make lots of growth....it may simply be enjoying life too much to bother with flowering.  I would apply potash now and again in spring.  A third in summer wont hurt.  I would not feed it apart from that

I will always speak my mind.......what you see is what you get, viz., honesty and fairness without sitting on the fence.  Advice posted, for,what it's worth, is always to help

Mollis, it seems one or two have assumed I have been unsympathetic to you.  Just re read my post and see nothing wrong.  It was written in good faith but wary yours   might have been a mischievous one.  (I have received a couple of such pm's). I feel sure I have not upset you but please let me know if I have.  

(People will read what they want to unfortunately.......)

as a matter of context  I had replied to Mollis on another thread where my intentions are clearly friendly so no stirring please folks 

(I have carefully re read this post to ensure my words cannot be twisted)

Turf not looking good

Jonboy, no not a pest problem then.  Symptoms would include grass easily separating from the soil

during a dry spell spike and aerate the grass if you want to help drainage but I would regard it as normal winter issues.  In spring give a feed and start a regular mowing regime.  From photos grass looks a little long.

 

December sprouting?

Mollis, your strawberries will be a little toxic next summer so  box them up and send them to me

Tootles I would remove any flowers on strawberry plants now....they are unlikely to produce fruit now but will take energy from them. Yes, enjoy any flowers on ornamentals

Jonboy could be our old leatherjacket friends.  If you have noticed damage since September these are the likely culprits. 

When you pull the turf does it part easily from the aoil? 

WEEVILS!!!
