Help for flooded gardens

Posted: 12/05/2014 at 14:24

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.

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.
