Help needed please

Genovese, I suggest you google how large it will grow and also if it is a very thirsty type of willow as some willows can take moisture from the foundations of your house, causing subsidence. I believe that a willow should be no closer than 85' from a building.

All my best wishes go with you.

Daniel, will we ever get back the emails notifying us that a followed thread has a response?

My mother always used boiling water on ants in the garden, but I guess it would not be too good for the soil.

No expert, did you have to plane the wood first to get that wonderful finish?

Transport needed for flooded gardens

Posted: 10/04/2014 at 13:29

Nut, just had a look and I'm wondering if you could get the plants to either Northampton, Luton or even Oxford; but that last one is 85 miles from you.

Rosie, do you know anyone who does trips in that direction, I seem to remember that you travel a bit?

Last year we had a map showing where people were located, anyone remember the name of that thread?

Nut, I will be going down to Somerset in mid May; I know you said that you could manage about 70 miles, so will look on the map to see how far that would take you, and we'll see if anyone can help there.

If all your plants were transferred to bags, just for the journey, they would not take up much space and at a push I could take them.

Lizzie, that is sooo true about housework; by the time I'm back in the house from the garden it is nearly dark, so don't notice the mess.

Spent 3 hours yesterday afternoon scouring out pots with disinfectant Never want to see another pot again!

Worm casts are supposed to be the MOST wonderful soil/growing medium?

Vygies/Ice Plant

Posted: 09/04/2014 at 21:37

Welcome Khakibos; the name ' iceplant ' applies to many different species as far as I can see, Vygie looks familiar to me and I would think it would work here in the UK if you are not too far North, but do not expect it to survive the winter.
