Hi Logan, i have looked at how aluminium effects plants,i think u need to look yourself as the info says it can effect root growth,however the amounts needed seem to be obscure,i went to (effects of aluminium on plants) to me it looks a no,no,however we know its used on acid soils as a colouration for some plants, id use polystyrene myself broken into bits ,it works perfectly in pots or troughs and is used in packaging everywhere, hope this helps,

Hedge cutting

RSPB  /www.rspb.org.uk/advice/gardening/planting/hedges/the_law.aspx

We recommend that cutting hedges and trees is avoided between March and August as this is the main breeding season for nesting birds.

wonder if the mild weather might start them earlier this year as there all getting frisky round erein Norfolk, yesterday there were 6 sparrows and blackbirds staking claim to a tree we were just going to  removing to plant a new apple,,back to the drawing board for that one then

If you wish to enhance red or pink flowers, apply a dressing of ground limestone or chalk at a rate of 75-100g per sq m (2-3oz sq yd) in winter.
