Vedun i feel the same, suddenly Monty and his gang are telling us what were supposed to think when we see a themed garden, just like so called art experts telling us what the artist was thinking when he painted this picture even though hes been dead 2 hundred years, what a load of nonsense some of it is, i thought the flowers this year were just stunning all the work that goes into them ,so much colour now ,and the new rose Lady Marmalade wow ,weve no roses yet but thats a must for starters, with some single open ones for the bees and maybe some of those big leaf flowers for the rear borders a right jungle look
Good luck all Alan

Where do we start?

Hi Eri, without a doubt the first thing to do is sit down avabeer/coffee and agree to take your time ,a bit at a time and ENJOY its not a chore its a pleasure ,so start at the offey or beeroff as we call em here ,, 2 or 3 bottles is a good start then it will all be much easier ,we have just turned a large part of a field into a great allotment ,pond and all, as the song says Nice and East does it every time,,Good luck loads of free advise just as Verdun says,Alan4711

comfrey liquid feed

Ann i found it so much easier after i read the page on ( ) it explained what plants want in a very very simple way, and about nettle tea,you can say that comfrey and nettle tea are almost the same ,good for roots,stems leaves,but lack Phosphorous for fruit or flower ,so this might need to be added later,as the page explains, Dandelion seems to have lots more nutrients including Phosphorous so it seems has the edge on the others, also a too strong tea mix tends to turn the plant leaves a reddish brown underneath as i found out earlier this year but they soon recovered, Alan
