Seeds for bees

Comment from Jan Helle

I received a packet of seeds for bees and duly sprinkled them into a very large pot and an area at the bottom of the garden. To my chagrin, I recognised none of the plants, so help would be much apprecitaed

Fairy Magnolia White

Question from Martin


I have just bought - Fairy Magnolia White. It is very small, only 80 sm height.

Can you please advise what size of the pot is the best for this magnolia? I shall keep it in an open sunny balcony overlooking south. And what type of soil do you recommend to buy, slightly acidic (pH 5,6-6,5) or moderately acidic? What pH ranging of soil is the best for Magnolia?

Very much rely on your quick advises.

Urgent request for Buddleja Davidii footage - Thank you

Question from Gisele Edwards

Hello, does anyone have any Buddleja Davidii that has not gone to seed? If so I'd be hugely grateful for some footage!

I am working on a non-funded arts project about Buddleja Davidii, due to be released for on online festival later this week (28th Aug); (the festival is intended to coincide with the Edinburgh Festival). Due to the recent heat wave a lot of the plant has gone to seed and my colleague and I (there are only two of us) are having trouble tracking down plants to film.

If anyone has any Buddleja Davidii and is willing to send a little video clip (minimum 10 secs) of it - we will credit you in the film- that would be tremendous!
Very many thanks.

That would be tremendous if so. Or if you know where else we can get hold of some, or find the plant. We need a decent crop of it.

Our deadline for editing the footage is this coming week.

Thank you very much, I very much look forward to hearing from you.

Kind wishes,

(contact details removed as per house rules, but you can send to us at shoot@shootgardening.co.uk and we will forward on)

Sad potentilla

Question from Sarah Ross

My Potentilla has not been very happy since I planted it. Any ideas on why this may be? It is in shade for half the day and sun the rest. It gets plenty of water.
