sarah broome- ivy blooms and berries only on mature wood if you trim it it will remain juvenilr forever-cuttings taken from mature ivy will form ivy trees rather trailing-very amusing
Hi adam,weve recently moved house and am looking forward to this years growing season.Theres evidence of a row of runner bean wigwams,how should i prepare that particular patch for this years crop of runners?
I have a 30x50ft new build 'garden' of turf which I want to nurture into a 'real' garden. We're in North Hampshire, however there's a lot of builder's rubble on top of our Hampshire chalk! The turf was laid 18mths ago, the garden is SW facing, the grass grew differently/patchy across the garden last summer. My question is: Should I lift the turf, remove the rubble & improve the soil before I think about design/borders/planting/veg patch? What advice can you offer for dealing with a new build garden?
