I've found a few flowers on mine that have not made fruit, I thought like Bob say's lack of pollination.I will pollinate by hand next year just to make sure, I did that with the strawberrys this year.

Italophile that's good to know let them struggle a bit. I had a peace lily house plant that did not flower for about 3 year's, till someone told me I treat it too good take it near death. I did and it flowers amazing every year now so it's always kept on the brink of death in summer.

Will do David thanks for getting back to me.  I take it you went to the garden centre and got some patatos?

It's nice to ask,  I know I've asked things that have been proberly covered before. If everyone looked up their problem in FAQ's found the answer, and never posted it would no longer be a forum and more of a wiki.

Yesterday there was a post about sweetpea's he had 3 posts on this forum and someone told them to go to a FAQ for sweetpea, their comment was so rude and not friendly at all, it almost made me mad, and that coming from someone with thousands of posts is disgusting.

Photinia Red Robin pruning?

Posted: 11/08/2013 at 11:23

I have a lolipop Red Robin from last year, trimed it early spring to wake it, and it's gone mad this year, they also like acidic soil if your suffering with brown leaves and curling. For those in pots ericaceous compost suits them the best.

It's a great show, just a shame it does not go out twice a week in peak season. Or make it an hour, half hour to show 3 VT's is not much. I would like to see Monty and Carol together they must never see each other, except at the Christmas party.

Morning all, Hope your all having a great weekend. I feel great today slept for 13hours last night and i'm still trying to come round a bit.

Today's jobs are mostly front garden tidy hedge and weed a bit, finish topping my pot's in gravel, I agree FG they do look finished with a layer on top.  It did look like it might rain half an hour ago, It now look's bright and sunny. Wahoo.

What's the star in your garden right now

Chicky that echinaceae prima donna is gorgeous i'm really jealous, and you're Rudbeckias are flowering nice, I'm still waiting on mine to open.

I've just put some patatos in today, Went to the garden centre they was 30p each or 4 for a £1. I've choosen the Charlotte patato. My first time with patatos never tried them before. No idea if i've done them right. I've put mine in them tarpaulin grow bag things. It's about a quarter full of grow bag compost then when the I see the plant coming up am i supposed to layer the soil up bit by bit whilst the plant grows till the bag becomes full? I've also stood them in the greenhouse, Do you think I should of left them outside till the weather turns.

Sorry for hi-jacking your thread.

How did you get on David?

Good evening all, Hope you have all had a nice day. I've been removing the bedding plants that was on the turn. Next year I need to be ready with replacements. Also decided to do a Carol Klein and put a top layer of gravel in most of my pots.

Can you identify this shrub for me.

Is It Bay or Laural related?
