MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 08/06/2013 at 08:39

Good morning everyone, chilly here, today I will tidy up the garden, load the car with display stuff and go and do my 'compost master' thing at a local flower festival in a churchyard. Back home, unload car, including wormery which I get to look after for 3 weeks. The wormery is great fun, seeing what they like to eat; they love the pulp from the juicer, but they can only have a bit otherwise they get overfed apparently. If I had grandchildren it would be worth getting one as they are easy to look after pets and they get kids to understand the cycle of growth, decay, growth again. Hoping it will rain in the next few days as have had to use the hose on the garden. Have a great weekend

The local squirrel goes after the sunflower kernals and ate it's way through the dark green plastic around the feeding hole. I have had to get a feeder with metal.

It could be dog pee? Did the previous owners have a dog? Try watering it and a half strength general feed. Is there anything growing up through it that could be strangling it?

Screening ideas

There is another solution, which I have seen in trade Design mags, especially for contract work i.e. Hotels etc. You make a sturdy trough and you put castors underneath so it can be moved; modern plastic castors, about 8 or 10 of them. You put good compost in the trough and plant a hedge. Other people on this forum could advise you about what is evergreen and fairly shallow rooted.
