Hi Jarob 24 I love the idea of a living bamboo wig wam. How do you do that and can I start one this time of the year ?

Thanks every one for such a quick response,  all your suggestions were very helpful. Verdun, I am going to plant the beans in two quite large deep raised beds that we recycled out of packing crates. The depth is aprox 45cm x 1200cm  will this be Ok ? How would you place the canes ?

Hi, I have been given 1 x Raspberry bush 1 x Redcurrant bush & 1 x Blackcurrant bush . They were dug up from a neighbours garden and look pretty wild. Is it worth planting them and if so what conditions do they like. I really dont have a clue but would like to give it a go.  I am a novice with a largish garden to fill.

Hi Shrinking Violet 1, Sorry for the confusion I will regenerate asap. As soon as I can work out how to do it I will be back as Criss.

artjak, I think you are right with regards to the disease. Looks like I have a lot of digging to do.

Yeah, everything is well rotted. Thats the shame as it would have been perfect to use. I have made a start digging it over and sorting out the " bits I don't want " but the smell is not good ! Also worried that if I transfer it to other parts of the garden it will encourage the cats to use new areas

Thanks for your help

I am new to this so please bare with me.

I have built up a huge amount of compost over a few years. Grass cuttings etc. were dumped at the top of my garden and ignored while we decorated the house. We are now starting on the Garden and I thought the compost would be ideal. Problem now is I find the cats have been using it as a toilet. Can I still use the compost ? If not what do I do with it ?  

Thanks in advance
