Hibiscus Syriacus

I've had a Hibiscus in a pot for a couple of years now and it hasn't flowered. It was in the sales so not in the best condition, I'm sure. It has a hard stem in the middle that's been cut down and there are leafy stems growing from the base. Any advice or suggestions?

Suntan oil

Re: Redcurrant

I have a mature redcurrant bush. About a couple of feet away there's a root coming up out of the soil. If this is from the redcurrant, should I bury the root or can I cut it off?

Roses in potatoes

Hello! Has anyone else heard of taking rose cuttings by putting them in potatoes - does it work, do they become surrounded by a field of potatoes?

Re: New ice cream maker

I didn't look into it before I bought one years ago. I wanted to make healthier ice-cream for the little ones, with less sugar and fat, etc., only to find that it needed a certain amount of the very ingredients I wanted to reduce, to produce the right consistency as the blade turned and scraped the ...
