Potting shed burglary

Posted: 30/03/2012 at 21:58
Really sorry to hear about your break in, unfortunately there are so many mindless thugs around... Every car in my road got there car wing mirrors kicked off last night... 50+ cars! I hope you have lots of lovely friends around you to help... Installing a security camara might be a good idea, at least if it happens again the police can help catch the scumbags

Help!!

Just make sure you put the cam high enough that they can't pull that off too!

Help!!

I would install a fake security cam, you can pick one up fairly cheaply .... That should act as a deterrent

Talkback: Growing wisteria in a pot

Posted: 28/03/2012 at 20:30
I planted mine in a large pot 5 years ago, I just used compost and mixed a handful of bonemeal into the plant hole. Mine is trailing on a sunny wall in a sheltered spot and comes back year after year. Every spring before the new buds open I just mix another handful of bonemeal into the top layer of soil... I hope this helps

I keep mine in full sun and it flowers every year, maybe try moving it to a sunnier spot

Talkback: How to grow mint from cuttings

You can grow lavender in the same way, just take cuttings from a lavender, poke them into a pot of compost and they will establish new roots in a matter of weeks

I have spearmint, chocolate mint and pineapple mint all growing like crazy and they all came from cuttings from my neighbours garden... They gave me permission to take it first of course!

Talkback: How to pot on sweet peas

Posted: 27/03/2012 at 20:35
I have just grown my sweet peas from seeds. I used peat pots which can be placed straight in the ground or plant pots once the roots have grown through the sides of the pots. I put one sweet pea seed per pot and have just planted them out today. Peat pots are great because there is no risk of damaging the roots or delicate stems when re potting
