Impossible to say; you may have some real nasties there, like Dock and Dandelion.

Good year for sweetcorn?

medavid, remember; no perrenial weeds unless they are seed and root free, also a mix of greens and browns (nitrogen and carbon) and turn it from time to time to get air into the mix. Good luck with making your compost

Ants in compost bin

Actually, the presence of ants means that your bin is a tad dry. You can go Brummie's way as above, or add a little urine and some green matter.

Gardening Buddy.

Flossie Flo is a very uncritical gardening friend, but she splits her time between watching me and watching the road, which runs alongside the whole garden to see if anyone has the temerity to walk a dog along the pavement!

She was 9 when I got her, she is 10 now or maybe 11, the former owner was a bit vague on this. She is a wiry haired short legged Jack Russell.

Happy Sunflowers

Philippa, what are lab labs? Are they the famous Labrador Tree that grows little puppies? I'll get my coat

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?

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