    Soil Testing Kit - Water advice

    I'm just going to repost this! You have the pH test kit already so miss out the soil and you'll know the pH of your water and then account for it in the soil test

    Berberis - Will it survive?

    OK thanks. Soil isn't great round here. Will see what I can find at the garden centre. Hopefully will be able to update this with a picture of a growing new bush before too long :)

    Physalis alkekengi

    Thanks @CarolineL, I've read it's invasive, so hoping I can keep it in pots and still get the best out of it, to be honest if it can be neglected as much as i did then it shouldn't be a problem.

    Why Can't I keep Lavender?

    I can't even go near Lavender, it gives me headaches and makes me feel sick.

    Wonky seedlings

    Let them be Kriss for now...except keep one seedling per pot :) They will grow well if you don’t overwater....keep on dry side.....and grow in a bright place.

    Begonia question

    They look fine Mazambo. Like Verdun I only grow the trailing and small bell flower types. Keep them lightly watered at first, they can suffer from stem rot. And only put them out when May warms up.
