Jojo I used to be a pub landlord for many years and the main prob was idiots putting there Fags out in the soil of some really nice plants and they had sings saying I dont smoke . Gave up and went plastic, Know how you feel, perhaps a sign asking the person who took it on themselves to water can buy another fot you bet they dont  Raining erein Muns N,Norfolk

Hi all yes Riddle i forgot that, the reason we used such a big Riddle was we Riddled 11.5 tons of soil ,as i said it was a field when we got it and had to import that amount of top soil as the depth of our soil was about 8 inches deep then stone, and what hard work but well worth it. and if I go to Poland im armed and ready I,ll be Riddling my way around.cheers all bit gloomy erein Muns N,Norfolk

Alan perhaps ,how big, how heavy, aprox cost, is it one finish or does rough or finer soil finishes etc ,were here to help matey, the idea is a good one im interested for sure, I know the soil we had after we did it was almost weed free and more than worth it,and though it upsets the top soil for a while you can see the kind of soil you have and how to help it ,we found very few worms so we manured it after we sieved with good results.for raised allotment beds its a godsend.

I would have thought if your soil is acid enough then just teese the roots loose and plant on,make sure the root ball is handled very carefully as the roots are massed and tender also the rhody has no big root feeder and is a shallow rooter so gently does it and make sure the level of planting is not deeper than it was in the pot, a good soak ( in the shade ) before planting  and a good organic rich loose soil to start it off,Spring is best for planting but not esensual . Good luck

I had one in Wales on the allotment which when we took  it was a field before, So  raised beds, one of those big bread delivery trays sat on 4 wooden legs,  hard work but the result was very good. you only need to do it once then a no dig rageam was easy, hope yours is easier Alan good luck matey
