Beat u 2it Dove by one minute !! weather report as follows,iv got 8 foot pampas grass 3 lots,all tied up together swaying away doing there best to escape towards the sea,iv got 10 foot bamboo canes tied twice to the fence also shaking like goodens,gusting winds and i mean gusting have nicked all my mini plastic plantpots from the top of my fig tree supports,its  doing its best to nick my greenhouse and im not joking but the worst was as i came back from tieing up the cains the back door,, door handle snapped as i tried to hold it from blowing closed ,and then as i tried to unscrew the handle the screw heads were shot,have you ever tried to hold a door open and drill out the old screws then change the entire locking system ,in this weather, i kid u not, Kate took one look and said i,ll put the kettle on, apart from that were all good erein Munds

I also watched Montys new prog,i do feel its all been done before sort of thing,but I do find the Beechgrove program has some good ideas, they often test different ways of gardening IE:using  weed killers or black plastic etc with the results given at the end of the test,one was they tried and tested purchased fertilizers and Comfrey, later in the year the results showed Comfrey was best, this type of program i find more interesting than  the makeovers and the bit that's almost always there "we might not have enough time before they get back"  that sort of  thing makes me feel a bit insulted as if I would believe such ensconce, But any gardening prog is far better than  all that Bl---- Football,Good luck Monty

Dord ,Why don't you simply put some chairs and a table there and invite us all over the water for a weekend break no expense spared, Champers, best quality wines, snails,french bread the works a night at the Follies, that would sort the problem out easy,wot u think Dord reasonable yes ???

Marygold 2    I think you will find your bin is too wet,if you return them into the same bin they will just do the same thing, this was a prob on here a short time ago, i found the problem being discussed on Utube and the answer was to add dry stuff to the mix and keep it dryer, most people who did this agreed dryer is better and the worms were happier,Nothing like a happy pile of worms is there.

Well, I never knew that!
