How to disguise compost bins

Winter flowering Jasmine is what I use

OK, who's got it?

Those thieves definitely need cutting down to size. The owner should get a large dog to scarify potential thieves.

Barbara, would you care to give us the recipe?

Onions - Autumn planting

Posted: 20/08/2014 at 20:25

For about £5 or £6 you could get 125 litre bags of general compost from B&Q and other outlets. I was a bit disappointed with the Red Baron onions I planted last Autumn; they didn't grow very large. I think I will try growing from seed, not sets next time.

Clear pond please !!

Composting

Hi Topbird, I have 2 medium Daleks and 1 large one (only got it a few weeks ago). I don't have bases for them, but they are situated in a sunny position on DPC, covered with gravel. In 10 years or so have never had problems with rats. The best way to deter rats is to situate bins near a high traffic area in your garden, the rats don't like that. So, for example, all my bins are just next to where I park the car, and on the way to the wood and kindling store. Also I empty kitchen waste into the bin at least once a day also garden waste. There is just too much activity for them to feel safe.

You could always hit the side of your bin with a bamboo cane every time you pass by

The Henry Doubleday Assoc. is now Garden Organic.
