Geewiz, we are apart of 25 other allotmenteers here in Tenby and all agree Raised beds,, spend your time preping your garden,as booky said dont rush into planting till your ready lots of info on here scaffold boards and water butts and all that info is here ,prep it once and no digging from then on it doesnt need doing again, just adding top goodness and let the worms do it, When you do your plan remember that rotation is required as well ,we spent last summer building our allotment from a field of an 18" high wasteland and its all being planted now after all the hard work is done, just keep asking we did
Good luck G

Hi all i read in an old mag someone gave me( Grow It July 2012 ) the star letter says she has almost no probs with slugs anymore, she cuts a gutter 10 inches long to form a tunnel places the tunnel on the soil and putts slug pellets onto a jar top to keep them dry and places it under the tunnel says its very effective (100s of slugs) she says Right im definatley trying that one it makes sence might be useful Alan 4711

update on Jeyes Fluid and cat probs

Posted: 22/04/2013 at 09:14
Hi i used the ""ready to use """ spray it took about 3 days to have an effect then Kate bought a tin of it so i just followed the dilute on the label instructions, i did by accident spray a weed which died nicely ,it seems to do what it says on the label a very good disinfectant and weed killer it seems ,i also use it for my water butts cleansing once a year when i drain down in winter,i didn't get any staining that i can think of,i also read about soaking teabags in it and burying 2 inches below the soil where the cats gather also they said any muscle joint spray on the teabags works very well i hav,nt needed to try these as Jeyes has worked so well for months now and im very happy as my history on here will tell, Right im off sorry no smileys on here they have disapered for some reason
good luck all Alan4711
