How to clear field

Posted: 13/09/2013 at 11:17
Hi jigsaw jill Iv just been given an allotment cd,called The Allotment ??5:99 ish its exactly what you need to explain just how to start your allotment off ,were just leaving ours for a new house and allotment, this time we will follow the no dig way all explained in the video (recommended)i personally would cut the nettles and make Nettle tea the dry not smelly way its all on the net and cd, mark off beds cover with cardboard, 8 inches manure,black plastic to keep the light out weighted down and leave , first time allotments from fields as said by Netherfield can suffer from Wire worm,if you start rotovating your unleashing all the wild seed thats been there for donkies years, and destroying the natural life that needs to be there in the first 8/12 inches of the soil,even the farmers dont want to dig unless they have to as the harvest prog shown last night,the paths in between the beds can then be cut or covered all this rotavating and digging just destroys and is hard work good luck Alan

Morning ,in the tv guide came a cat from Spalding Plant and bulb co,in it there is a Buddleja davidii in the mag it looks stunning red purple and white all in one bush,it says its a butterfly bush, does anyone know who has the mag is it one plant or a clever photo trying to get me to buy 3 as they do say they sell 3 colours as well, is there a 3 coloured bud ,im thinking of it as a nice looking wildlife bush for the garden, obviously i know nothing about buddleja, i think it may be just a sad misleading picture hope not Alan
