Help for flooded gardens

Gardening 101

Posted: 25/04/2014 at 14:41

Ant 5, welcome and what a great project. A lot of the weeds will have given up after being covered in plastic and now you should schedule for a couple of hours each week, as this is the growing season to go round with a dandelion fork, digging up weeds as you see them. You can post pics on this forum if in doubt about what plant is what Would be useful to have a pic of whole garden; perhaps from an upstairs window?

Have you looked on the map chicky, to see if anyone involved in this thread is in any of those places?

where to put my compost bin

Posted: 24/04/2014 at 09:17

Have never seen a cockroach in England (did stay at a 3 cockroach hotel in Cuba though) The bin should be 50% greens and 50% browns, turned frequently to get loads of air into the mix. It should NOT smell. Are you getting a couple of those plastic Dalek shaped bins? You may find that your local Council does a cheap deal on these. Don't get the very tiny ones as they don't work so well. It is a good idea to have 2 then one is cooking whilst you are filling the other. Good luck with it

BB2, what a lovely garden

Beetroot problems...

I tend to plant beetroot where they will be growing, rather than have to move them. I also have a lightweight cold frame that I can move around; though have never used it for beetroot.

Why does it say I've reviewed all these plants?
