Talkback: Microgreens on your window sill

Posted: 04/02/2014 at 11:40

Recently I grew radish as a baby plant as a garnish for a Nigel Slater version of celeriac remoulade. They took far longer to grow than I had anticipated, so the lunch party came and went without the garnish I also think it is a waste of seed at todays' prices. All right for v. expensive restaurants perhaps.

On my drive, my builder used some DPC we had left over, then punctured lots of holes in it with a garden fork, then laid the gravel on top. It has worked now for 13 years.

Yellowing lawn

crazyf, could it be that the local dogs are using it as a loo? though that would tend to make it patchy yellow.

Help to find Narrow Weeding Hoe.

Posted: 03/02/2014 at 17:55

I got a very tiny hoe from a car boot sale; in fact I've had several good buys from the same stall holder over the years. But my hoe is not angled, though it does work well.
