Lizzie, Norfolk Council and a charity called Garden Organic train volunteers to teach people about home composting as it saves quite a lot of material going to landfill - 60% of household waste could be composted at home. As you may have guessed I am rather passionate about this. Quite a few other Councils have the scheme as well; I saw a map when I went to the Master Composter's conference last Autumn and was surprised at how many areas have the scheme.
pansy, don't apologise; how about starting a separate thread then you will be able to mobilise/access far more forum members to complain. Suggest you give us the email address of that dratted planning dept too Go for it!
Hello invicta May we see a photo? It would help in giving advice. Just click on the little tree icon and upload.
My favourite hedge is beech, but it may not be appropriate. There is a website completely devoted to hedging plants, you may find this useful.
I use sharp sand from builders merchants to help the drainage when mixed with compost. I increase the ratios for cuttings; it works well, it was a builder who advised me to use it and his veg always grow very well.
Wet Sunday bump
I spoke too soon about the weather; driving rain here in the Fens.
Dave, I don't get GW mag, but good idea to contact a tree peony grower, thank you for that
Ceres, brill idea, the pinking shears
Verdun and Dove, thank you so much for the advice, yes, it will be a big pot for the lovage. May have to start a separate thread for the tree peony, someone out there must know how to propagate them
