Hi i have some shaded parts of my lawn especially the southern side of my house. I have a lot of mosses and other things other than grass growing which look very pretty and are more comfy than grass so I don’t mind. Just wondering if I use the normal prickle spray will I kill all in the lawn other than the grass?

I planted new asparagus last year. Do I cut last years old ferns off? New asparagus are coming through now. Do I cut them off too and wait for the new ones in Spring? What do I feed the plants now and also do I put sheep pellets round them? Can the new spears be used and eaten this year or do I have to wait another year or so?
Thank you for your advice in advance.
Regards
Sue

Hi There, I am looking for a fragrant bush / floral / thing for the front of my house next to my front door. The front of my house is split into two, with the door in the middle. To one side (at ground level) I’ve planted a row of golf ball pittosporums to the end of the house and I want to add some white hydrangeas in behind those to add some depth and texture.

On the other side is effectively a white plaster planter box which runs almost to the end of the house and is raised approx. 40cm from the ground. In front of that I plan on planting more golf balls and currently planted in the box are three standard camellias. It is for this space that I’d like something fragrant and I’m happy to do away with the standards if I have to.

My house is a dark charcoal with white windows and trims, so the greens and whites look fantastic as contrast and whatever I plant next I’d also like to be white.

If I’m able to send a photo it would probably make more sense!

Thank you for your patience – novice planter over here!

Rose 🙂

In an outdoor container, the thyme appeared to be flagging and the soil dry but a moisture meter suggested otherwise. I thought the root of a parsley plant may have been taking up too much room so pulled it out and found the soil full of a huge amount of ants. Can you offer a solution without discarding the whole container and replanting? /would ant sand work?

Hi
I have had a long-term problem with thrips on a small tree which has been in the ground for 2 seasons. It flowered last year with 1 bloom and this year with 2. I have to admit I haven’t been very proactive with spray but have just been advised that ‘Success Ultra’ is a good spray to use. I have used it, but my question is, do I leave all the diseased leaves on the tree or try and remove some of them? I have sprayed all the new growth so hopefully they won’t be diseased as well.
Are some rhododendrons more susceptible to thrips than others?
Thanks
Prue.
