Indoor avocado growing


to me that would mean its either not getting enough light or the soil content is not right, do you use veg food for plants, try a compost base for vegetables. and water 2 times a day. when the temperature is at its lowest.

Tip

Haste to stop waste!


Too often we let our irrigation systems go on without really making sure that the amount of water, the pressure, the radius and other settings are what our lawn or landscape needs.
This causes not only a great waste of water and money but it may also ruin our flowers and plants.
Therefore here are a few tips to transform a wasteful sprinkler irrigation into the effective system it should be, and to keep a healthy landscape, lawn or garden.

1. When to water.
Watering your lawn and landscape should be differentiated according to seasons.
During warm months (May to October) irrigation should be activated between midnight and sunrise, so to minimize the water that evaporates.
While during winter, plants and lawns should be watered during the warmer part of the day to prevent water from freezing on the landscape.

2. Don't drown your plants.
Keep an eye on your lawn while the sprinklers are on and monitor when the water starts dripping off the sides. This way you will know how long your sprinklers should be left active for, so that the plants may absorb the water without being overwhelmed.

3. Avoid daily, light watering.

4. When watering plants with deep roots, water well and deep, until about half inch deeper than the deepest roots, in order to encourage downward growth.

5. When watering on a slope do it gradually. Run your sprinklers every 3 hours circa and aerate to increase infiltration.

6. Check your sprinkler's efficiency once a month.
Check for damaged, leaking, clogged or stuck sprinkler heads and for constantly soaked patches of grass or soil to detect leakage.
Make sure that the water is sprayed all over the area and that new additions or plants that grew higher and larger don't block the spray pattern.

7. In seasons in which the temperature reaches 30/32 degrees Celsius remember to run your sprinklers 5 to 10 minutes in the afternoon to cool the area. It reduces the symptoms of summer patch disease.

8. Create water zones by putting together the plants that have similar water needs, and water them accordingly

9. Be careful when mowing. If your sprinkle heads don't retract underground after irrigation, apply small flags on them so that while mowing you see them better and avoid damaging them.

What do you furtlise Hydrangers with?


I love these plants for their ease of growing and spectacular colours!
The answer to your question partially depends on what colours you have or want. Other than that they pretty much grow anywhere in a good sunny spot, and unless your soil is terrible, they dont need fertilising, just plenty of water. If you do fertilise then everyday fertiliser is fine but depending on its composition it may change the colour of the flowers.

This excerpt is from a web page listed below:
"Hydrangeas are amazingly versatile in that you can actually alter the flower colours to suit your needs. The flower colour in most forms relates to the acidity or alkalinity of the soil. In acid soil (pH 5 or less) hydrangeas are usually always blue. As the soil pH climbs towards the neutral and alkaline end of the scale (pH 7 or more) hydrangeas turn mauve, pink and red. A blueing tonic (containing aluminium and iron) will turn pink or mauve hydrangeas blue. It should be applied once a month in March and April and again in August, September and October, following the directions on the pack. A cup of lime (calcium carbonate) added to the soil in spring will cause blue or mauve hydrangeas to turn pink. White flowering hydrangeas will remain white regardless of soil pH."

When do I pick my potatoes off the plant please. They have a yellow flower on them now. A friend planted them for me.


Ah potatoes. You could have replied to me as a Comment. I am a gardening expert amongst other things.

When the flower die off if you pick your potatoes they will be 'new potatoes', small and tender. If you want full sized potatoes or main crop potatoes you harvest them when the foliage has flowered, matured and dies off completely.

You can take a sneak peek by carefully removing the soil from one of the plants. I hope you have been 'earthing them up'? Raising the soil on the rows to cover the tubers. If you don't exclude the light by earthing up, they go green and the green flesh on a potato is toxic, the same as Deadly Nightshade but not as severe. Both are the same genus.

65 seeds were planted. 8 plants grew in week 1, 11 plants grew in week 2, 14 plants grew in week 3. what percent of the seeds had sprouted in week 5?


Something between 0% and 49%. Without knowing how many sprouted in week 4 and how many in week 6 or later (including those which never sprouted), it's impossible to narrow it down any further.

For example, if 32 sprouted in week 4, that's all of them and there's nothing left for week 5 so you get 0% in week 5. At the other extreme, none could sprout in week 4 then 32 sprout in week 5, giving 49%.

Bought 2 new gardenia in 9cm pots, have re-potted into large container, they have had feed and water, yet they seem to be dying off


It could be that the container they are in is too big. The top layers of soil are the first to dry up so if a container is too large for the plants, the nutrients and water could be washed down beyond the smaller plants reach. I would start by having the soil tested at a local plant and tree nursery. Over time minerals and salts can build up in soil to levels that may be tolerable for a larger plant that has grown in that soil it\'s entire life, but will mean doom and death to smaller plants or different types of plants. If the soil tests ok,. then I\'d try a smaller container. I\'m no expert, this is just from my own experience. Hope it helps.
