@jadojado29 they’re quite unassuming at first but the way they change through the year is so interesting. I had 14 but the heat killed off my bigger 8 😔

I'm moving plants out of the house, one by one. Still haven't got enough space to start seeds off lol. I bought some eddoes in Morrisons yesterday. Put them in plastic bags in damp compost in the airing cupboard and hoping they will sprout .... it's a new one on me but they are an Asian tuber which grow into what we know as colocasias 😍 At 43p each, they were worth a punt. Now to find a shop that sells taro for a different kind of colocasia 😂

Just looked Eddoes up Julie @vec as had no idea what it was 😂 is it with massive leaves? Now I know why you didn’t have any plants with you crafty buy them before I see Suzie 😂 Juan Andres said did you see your mate she just waved to me 👋😘

Evening Sue @susanhumphrey333 I’m beginning to wonder when did I say it was a good idea to decorate 🤪 can’t move in the kitchen, hallway, or the room we are decorating can’t get to my dinning table as that’s piled high so can’t shut any door and have it out of sight 🙁 Roll on tomorrow determined to get some order back. Hope your decorating goes to plan good to take a rest from it for a day 😘

Fab little no fuss plant's,I never really bothered with them either but put a few more in the garden a while back and now they are some of the only plants with some colour on at the moment and thanks hinny I've had a fab day,spent a bit time in the greenhouse sorting some casualties out and putting them on the compost heap,I've neglected them these last couple of weeks 🙄😬 I've potted others on to see if I can save them so fingers crossed,hope you had a great day 😘😘

Are you using ericaceous compost?

jadojado29

Ummmm no I didn't at any other time Val @valjones-hughes is that what I was doing wrong 😚

comment
valjones-hughes

Hi @jadojado, most heathers (but not all) need an acidic soil that’s not too dense. I have planted them in pots in ericaceous compost and kept them for years. In the garden I’ve put it in the planting hole and back-filled with it. I think you can make your own compost with added leaf mould, pine needles or shredded pine bark. I just bought it😅

Thanks so much Val for the advice, now I know, will try that and see what happens 👍 @valjones-hughes 😚

This is my first year, and tho granted, most everything I've gotten came off the clearance rack, I have lost maybe a third. Not good really, but I can't say I've tried anything before. Well, in Michigan, I could grow impatiens hosta and petunias, here, in Tenn, they don't work for me.. yada, yada my point being, keep trying something diff. The potting soil @valjones-hughes recommended... I think my soil, my ground, it too heavy. Something to work on
