    Ideas on bedding plants or shrubs?

    Cheers. One of my continuing challenges is knowing which category these fall into, timing as regards planting and flowering, cutting back etc. Thanks anyway.

    Ideas on bedding plants or shrubs?

    Thanks again. Does that advice about not digging horse manure into soil also apply to the bog standard stuff (peat free bed and border manure) you get from B&&Q?

    Ideas on bedding plants or shrubs?

    Thanks again. Just seen the peat free beds and border manure at B&Q. Can I not just use this? If I do, would I mix with compost? Regards

    Ideas on bedding plants or shrubs?

    Thanks. Other thing I forgot to mention is that I used a fair bit of Weedol to rot the roots before stump buster. Guess that hasn’t exactly helped soil fertility? (Should I be able to get house manure from any garden centre?) Thanks again

    Ideas on bedding plants or shrubs?

    Hi Just had bushes removed and stump buster to clear conifer and shrub roots. Didn’t inherit my old man’s green fingers, so haven’t a clue what/how I should plant. (Not even sure if I need to use compost) Any wisdom would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Filling gap between tile and wood

    Hi We had bathroom fitted about 20 years ago. There is a wooden ledge surrounding the sink and covering top of toilet. The sealant has now gone from the gap between the wood and the tiles that sit above. Would you recommend using caulk filler or silicone for this? Thanks
