Drought Tolerant Mint

Posted: 06/08/2013 at 01:34

Yes, but it isn't a mint.  Mint is Mentha ...

The flowers drop off if they are not fertilized.  Ensure you don't use anything in the garden to harm the bees, and they will do the buzziness.

Early Primula

What Primulas are they, because it is a normal flowering time for some varieties?

There is no need to cut back the leaves.

Smokin Donkey, I know it is only a small point, but tapeworm is not a bacterium.  Trouble is if you write such a simple thing wrongly it casts doubt on the other things you write, and you obviously take great trouble to write long posts.

Have you deleted all your history from your computer, sometime you can get bogged down by all the old stuff hanging around?  Do it regularly.

James, is it really appropriate to talk of 'my silly wife' on a forum?  Maybe she mutters about her 'silly husband' under her breath!

I opt not to get an email; why would I want one, I get enough emails already?

Diatomaceous earth - your thoughts

Cats are quite easy to give pills to if you wrap them in a towel.  Tuck them under your arm and you have both hands free for administering the pill.  Open their mouth and put the tablet too far down for them to 'tongue' it up. Close the cat's mouth until they have swallowed the pill.  Release angry cat.

They won't speak to you again for a bit, but Hey Ho! that may be all to the good.

No use for this year, but the best advice is not to buy plants in.  Grow as much as you can from seed as bought-in plants are usually infested with the things.

In the meantime you can reduce their impact by using the vacuum cleaner to suck them up.  But try not to electrocute yourself!

Weed or Plant identification

If you have a large amount of top-soil, you are going to be very busy microwaving it bowl by bowlful.  Can you not hoe it very regularly until all the weeds have germinated?
