Transport needed for flooded gardens

Posted: 24/04/2014 at 20:52

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

Beetroot problems...

Posted: 24/04/2014 at 09:08

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.

Orchid Lady, I think it looks fabulous; could you put a little compost in the hole on the right and have something slightly drooping planted there?

Talkback: Wild garlic

Posted: 23/04/2014 at 20:53

atway, are the leaves quite broad and about 15cm tall? If it is wild garlic, it is apparently invasive; I keep it in check by planting it in a hole in horticultural membrane covered in pea shingle. Will post photo 2morrow if you like

Gardening with the enemy

Victoria, I would just tell the horrid old man that the rate of TB has rocketed in recent years because of spitting. When I was a small child, circa 1952 I can remember being on the top of a bus in Hampstead (there's posh) I had just started to master reading and asking my mother what 'hawking and spitting' were as there was a sign on the bus forbidding it. I came across both when working on a building site in the Middle East and didn't eat for 3 days as I felt so sick! Eventually I got used to it.

Fg; please tell me what you can tie the string to in a Halls Silverline Costafortune with no after sales service Greenhouse?

I was looking at it today and thinking ;I will have to drill holes in the aluminium struts or use clothes pegs? There is absolutely nothing to fasten anything to.
