Lawn weedkiller

Resolva lawn weedkiller is too strong.  I use the spot weedkiller already mixed and the Resolva brand killed patches of grass.  The rest are fine

No, don't all take. Agree with chicky...if 50% take its good

Not,had that Berkeley but suspect the sun dried them out a little.  Carrots need to keep growing with regular water supplies for best taste.  I have found a similar experience with Beetroot and have overcome this by ensuring they domt dry out.  It has been pretty hot lately so....

Stomach's rumbling .....all this talk of food


Posted: 18/08/2013 at 21:48,you're a blonde?  No dont  use rooting powder in water

I put 7 cuttings in 9cm pot around the edge.  None in the middle.  They root better if just inside the rim.

Hiya scottcake

Neither too ambitious nor deluded.  Could I suggest you use John innes compost though?  Two reasons....firstly Heucheras like good soil.  Secondly vine weevils......their arch enemy.....prefer mpc.  I would also top dress with grit as an additional deterrent to vine weevil

Hey fairy!  You disagreeing with me?   Not good form,,what?  ..ha ha 

Comsidered wet clay but it's been so,hot and dry over past 3 months ...the period in question....that I suspect topical lime damage.  if anything that clay,may have dried out,and cracked ......cousin of mine gardens on heavy clay and it's been drying out over  past months. 

Have I convinced you fairy?

Italophile, got superb tomatoes this year.....determined from the start to grow good.  However immnot too sure about Sungold.  An acquired taste,I,think. ,enjoyed gardeners delight in the past but any other cherry toms you like?
