No not joking. It really is good for the garden. We quite happily put horse, cow even pet wee on the compost...mixed with poo!!!! why not human? It is the best thing for nitrogen and great compost accelerator

Weed/Plant ID please

You need to decide for her Diddy. She is new to all this and doesn't know what will grow well which is why she gave description of garden.

You missed it too Paula  Good day today wasn't it? Well it was here you are miles away lol.

Diddy....toothpaste lol. Miracle grow...nasty horrid stuff totally unnatural that literally makes bedding flower itself to death! 

Use epsom salts to green up yellowed foliage especially on raspberries. We have a lot of chalk around this area which can cause an imbalance of nutrients such as Magnesium. Never used on toms Paula didn't know that.

Ooooh so many things you could replace the outer fence with. Try things like winter flowering honeysuckle shrub. for really early flowers for emerging bees.

 Osmanthus Delavayi. Evergreen, early, tough as old boots

 Both of them have wonderful scent too.

If you can find one and are willing to spend a bit of money and wait a few years then Cornus mas veriegata. It flowers early then foliage is lovely crisp white and green then red cherry like berries that the birds love.
