Can't beat the expert, chris bowers 

For me rhubarb loves rich nutritious and moisture retentive soil.  Mine get good mulch in autumn and fish blood and bone in spring.  An extra watering or two during early summer too works wonders.  Hmmmmmm, rhubarb

Conifer problem

Posted: 19/12/2013 at 18:27

Hello spainman

Unlikely that this thinning is because of being topped 6 years ago.  What variety of conifer  do you have?  sounds like Leylandii ...it's growth rate?  Or a pine?  Conifers do get brown inside....their greenery is usually quite thin.  Perhaps it is just growing treelike and doing whats easiest for it.  Has it ever been pruned apart from that topping?  My conifers are all trimmed annually to retain density.

Bringing back the Annual!

Hiya Ryan,  hmmmm, interesting question.  Not really an annual guy but can I say tomato?  I know you meant flower really 

Least favourite annual must be marigold.

Andy Murray deserved to win.  Just go back a few months and remember the excitement when he won Wimbledon.  And why we were so pleased about it.  It doesn't matter if he is a little boring....it's about sporting achievement.  If he didn't win this time he never would

Just received a parcel of plants via FED EX.  Collected amd delivered in one day and tracked easily.  I knew just when it would arrive.
