ugh this is awful tonight. I'm refreshing page's about 5 time's and something new pop's up every now and then.

All they need to do is unplug it, leave it for 5 then plug it back in, that always works.

Acer Help please

Hi Jayne as you have it potted did you use Ericaceous compost. multi-purpose is not really great for them.

All great advice here, I would like to watch it for a least year, If it looks shabby now it might be planted for early spring display and you've mised it, or it could look fantastic in winter and give you lots of evergreen.

Congrats on your new home.

Shrinking Violet your post just popped up. I had some of that oasis in my hand's today and put it in the bin. It was at the bottom of a "sweetie hamper" I was given. Used with the kebab squers to hold up the sweet's. I've saved the squers and just used one of them.  I might have to get that oasis out of the bin tomorrow. Might come in handy again for cuttings. Thanks for your help.

Just done that Paula, using the dog's poo bags and a snapped kebab squers . Just the right size.  

 I've also brought in inside and place on windowsill

Thanks Paula I will try that, I have not been putting a bag over maybe that's where i've been going wrong, I do use the hormone powder now and than but I wont this time. I don't like to use alot of the powder normally, if I can see it on the cutting thats to much for me and tap it off.  

I might just go back out and try one of those cutting's in the seed compost and cover it. They are on my mind and it's driving me nuts.

Hello Forum, I need some help please, I've been trying for the last couple of weeks trying to get my fuschia cutting to root. I am on my second batch of cuttings in compost and they look dead. So I have got some more cuttings today from my mum's fuschia, (i can't get anymore from mine) and i'm going to try and get them to root in water. I've put them in my saved coffee jars, in the greenhouse behind the tomato's hopefully get some shade there. Ive also left a couple more leaves on this time. One Jar I have put a crum of hormone powder in and the other just rain water. Thought I would try that.

Does anybody have any known system that works? I've googled and got myself confused in a mass of info, dont even know if they are in the uk.

Can you identify this shrub for me.

Is It Bay or Laural related?
