Lavande, try tieing a teacloth underneath the fork on the plant and place a newspaper or card between the plant and wall and gently spray close to the plant let the spray run down onto the aphids,the teacloth can catch the water ,Weak washing up liquid has saved many a plant for me. i dont know how to erradicate them for good,, good luck

Veranda versus conservatories

Posted: 03/05/2014 at 16:40

Hi speaking from experience ,the house weve just bought had a long veranda and was turned into part of the house with double glazing all round three sides,cold in winter hot in summer nice first thing in the morning, BUT we now are extending and a Must is do not have paneled,bottoms when you glaze as this is where the heat is lost,so we are using brick bottoms and double glaze gas filled windows, Argon gas windows  works out as good as tripple glaze and about half the price..,,just thought id try to save some money for anyone thinking of double glazing stuff.  Sunny ere in Norfolk  avagooden

tyres on allotment

Posted: 02/05/2014 at 11:02

Morning all , a friend  in Wales on the allotment where  we used to be neighbors phoned me yesterday ,he,s a good gardener and has 2 large allotments now,his latest thing is the very large used farmers tractor tyres ,he has 4 set in a square which makes 4 nice big raised beds and one in the middle,he says he,s not painting them because its an allotment and insists they look ok,and are working very well ,he points out that he walks on the tyre walls to work the soil so no soil damage and are dig free,they cost only a couple of pints of beer to deliver as the farmers have to pay to dispose of them, Trevor matey i give you ten for trying
