Hi there was an earlier thread on this that suggested soaking tea bags in Keyes fluid and laying around the perimeter creating a barrier to them . I'm not good at searching for previous threads, or would dig it out for you

Oh these look great, so exciting seeing that bit of greenery ! Uuumm, well not a stich of greenery on mine, may need to chalk it up to being .... Rubbish gardener ! I'll persevere until May  . I got red hot poker, alliums, rudbekkia agapanthus and aquilegia. I cleared a side bed and wanted cascading rows of flowering plants, from 100cm through to 40cm at the front

Sadly (or not !!?) I was made redundant at the end of February and my garden has never been so spring ready as this year ! I've built a rock garden, planted 3 new screening trees (flowering ones..... Can't wait for them to take ) and done all the cleaning, power washing and soil manure /improvement it can take. Bought a new water   feature for next to the rock garden, just need to wire it up now. Oooo I can't wait for spring to really sprung !

Hi, can you tell me if the ash from a wood burner is actually good for my flowering shrubs please ? I think it provides potash but before I spinkle it liberally over my soil, I'd like to be sure. Thanks
