    Hi Richard
    I also bought these and I am not sure if they are still alive! I’m a very novice gardener and I did everything on the instructions with the help of the garden centre attendant. I’ve been feeding them fortnightly with a mixture which I bought from QVC with a battery operated spray gun and now they look like sticks with shrivelled up, very tiny brown fern type leaves at the top. Have I killed them????

    Dear Richard Jackson
    I hope I have posted this in the right place. I need help please.
    I would like to get some chrysanthemums for my brother as he had to destroy his collection due to a parasite. He has been in the Wiltshire village for the last 50 years and was famous for his chrysanthemums in and around the shows.
    The parasite was so contagious that he had to burn all the plants he had developed over the last 25 years and he was devastated. He has not been able to do much this year as wife has been in hospital for the last 4 months and only just pulled through.
    Have you anything suitable I could send him for Christmas this year I am looking for a selection to get him started again as he is now retired he is missing his passion for his chrysanthemums.
    Please help if you can

    Please help, I cannot seem to trace the connector which goes on to the tap end of the Magna Hose which I bought in 1996. Without a new end the tap merely loses so much water at the end where it fits the mains that it is a waste of time and water. The part where the three channels are has cracked. I bought a new flat hose connection from Hozelock but this did not fit at all. What is needed is a connector which converts the round tap to the flat hose.
