RE-POTTED PLANTS BY TIGER ( as promised!)
Well done - is that pansies in the trough now?
When the not very well pieris has finished flowering, cut it back to encourage new healthy growth near the base.

Yes Bamboo they are summer pansies, 24 plug plants for £ 4. 25 from our local nursery- a blaze of mixed colours for summer. Will trim the pieris as you say. It already seems to have perked up after a good soak. Was hoping for rain today, none so far hopefully tonight. My water butts are now empty!
Possible snow here in the south early hours and tomorrow - still, at least it turns to water when it melts, lol
Thank goodness we are a good 70 miles south of you Bamboo! Still, the warmer weather recently has made some plants wake up far too early here. I have to check the forcast every day at the moment as we have quite a few tender plants well under way. Can't believe i'm already tired of watering!!
Gave ours here a last soak with the sprinkler today and then applied 2 inches of mulch. It's on its own now, no more hosepipe use here.
No restrictions here at the moment but i have resisted using the hose so far but the watering can is hard work!
Tell me about it - I have to carry the can from the back of the flats right round to the front to water the part I look after - and that part is, in total, about 30 sq m. That's why I'm saying it's on its own now...
Poor you!! I would feel a little guilty using the hose as i know so many people can not use their's, dispite no ban yet. Hope your garden fends well this year, it really is becoming awfully dry.
How do I say thanks?
« Has anyone tried the multi-purpose compost from Homebase and if so is it OK please...
Will lilly of the valley push up through grass as other bulbs do such as daffs and... »
