hi chicky. yes pretty much just tickle in....a handful I guess. once a year for me
Me too....... just love rolling in it with my legs in the air and singing the ying tong song on a purfectly sunny day
yes and you will see masses of new shoots so cut as far back as you like to these.
picked up compost from local asda store...3 x70 litre bags for £10. no idea how good it will be but useful for lots of potting on, etc.
been raining for most of the morning but now clearing up
growing well now. but it is a little cold for the lady in the bath out there methinks
cannas,...but a lot of tender perennials
I dont feed too much.......fish blood and bone is good. Too much food and you will have soft lush growth easily damaged by the weather.
Cloudy, windy but mild. Rain on its way...soon...and stronger winds
Dove, clearly exhausting time for you. Keep cheerful
better take my dog in a moment whilst it's still okish
John Innes no 1 with added grit/perlite for me.
Lithodora needs more acid soil and, in my experience, does not like to dry out too much so not sure I would include this with your other choices there
Yes,,every time. Secret is to cut flower spike as it is just about to go over.
Do the same with lupins to get a long flowering season
