Are they in the ground or in pots? I have two in pots and it is important to keep the roots covered, i have put pebbles and shells over the top of the pots.  They must have plenty of water and be well drained and regular feeding from spring.  

Tomato Plant Concern

Posted: 20/05/2017 at 10:04

I agree fairy girl, too early to plant out, our climate is so unpredictable in this country.  The plant looks very unhealthy. Maybe next year try growing the tomato plant under cover, in a pot in a greenhouse or in one of those plastic covered constructions you can buy at any garden centre.

1st year climbing rose - problem with blooms

Posted: 19/05/2017 at 21:17

I have a climbing rose growing in a pot, it's well established, and is now a few years old.  I water it well and feed in the spring then throughout the summer.  There have always been plenty of buds which go on to flower well.  Only thing that knocks back a half opened bud is rain and wind together!  It used to be in the garden near honeysuckle and it did not thrive at all. So it was dug up and put in a pot! Thriving now. Also  i put some cut off stems into pots of compost and they have rooted and shooted!

Just an update on my rose bushes.  I potted them up, watered them well and waited.  They have all survived, with new shoots and buds forming.  Keeping an eye on them though, but very pleased they survived their ordeal!

japanese anemone (Anemone X hybrida) invasion

Thanks everyone for your advice.  I have just come back from a holiday in Portugal and so catching up on my postings.  Checked on the japanese anemone, and lo and behold as you said, there were two shooting up!  So I ousted them out, and they came clean away, but I know I will be in for a long battle.  Reminds me of Japanese Knotweed, same problem, but thank goodness I haven't any of that in the garden!

Had a massive clear out of this anemone, it had become too invasive.  Kept popping up where it was not wanted, got under low walls in my garden, and into neighbouring flower beds.  So, although the flower is really attractive, I decided to clear it all.  Trouble is it seems to send out dead looking roots, and they are dark brown, so impossible to get every one. Can anyone tell me if any left over roots will start sprouting again?!

Thanks nutcutlet, mystery solved.  Will go out there tomorrow and sort it!

Weeping Cherry Tree mystery

Posted: 19/04/2015 at 20:13

I have a weeping cherry tree in my front garden, which is quite old, at least 25 years old!  It has always produced lovely pink blossom at this time of year.  I have noticed, this year for the first time it has produced small white flowers on one branch! The rest of the tree has pink blossom as usual. What is my tree trying to say to me!! 

Greenhouse Preparation Advice

Posted: 02/03/2015 at 11:59

You have done the right thing by smoking your greenhouse!  I always buy growbags for my tomato plants and pepper plants.  Been very successful.  Could put the compost into pots and plant up too.  My greenhouse has a concrete floor as I find it easier to keep clean and use for storage of other plants. Pests are always a problem in the greenhouse, but more so I would think with earth plots.

Thanks for the advice.  Been too wet to get out into the garden, but better forecast for this week and next weekend so will try and find a space in the garden for them.  Hopefully they will survive.  One of them was a cutting from a friends garden, don't know the name but it has a wonderful scent.  Fingers crossed then!!
