Water butt advice

Posted: 05/02/2014 at 17:28

I agree with clueless; it won't cost much to replace the downpipe when you leave (as long as you don't live in a 3 storey house), then you could take the water butt with you. Check the price of downpipe first though, there are some fancy ones that may be pricey.

Compost question

Posted: 05/02/2014 at 17:25

On the composting course I did, they said the worms simply come 'by magic' and it does seem to be true. Also, I think they are not ordinary garden worms; redder, smaller and thinner. Every time I open the lid of the bin there are a few lingering on the edge of the lid.

Lawnmower Chris, I really admire you for doing that, far too many people are stuck in jobs that they loathe, my advice to them all is to find one that you like. When I started out I was a graphic designer in Television. All the people I worked with were hooked on the high wage packets and stressed out beyond belief. I took the leap into the unknown to become a mural painter and though I will never be 'rich' I have had such rewarding experiences working round the world that I would not change that choice I made 42 years ago for anything

Mike Allen, it was lovely to hear about your experiences, the only thing that would get you booed off I think would be a lack of kindness towards other forumites. (is that a new word?)

Possibly Wegeila at the top. Could the bottom one be a form of Lonicera?

If I'm wrong (I often am) someone will put you right
