Ruby, remember when using weed and feed NOT to put the first few mowings on your compost heap, or in the Council green bin. Just bag it up and put in the household rubbish.

If you are starting a new garden, annuals are useful for giving you plenty of colour in the first year. BUT, there are lots of annuals that you will grow to love for their beauty, also using some annuals with the perennials allows you to change a flower bed a bit from year to year.

And then there are biennials which tend to flower in the second year and then die off, hopefully having self seeded first. I believe that some foxgloves are an example of this.

Fertilising the Veg Garden

Posted: 28/01/2014 at 18:27

philippa; in my area we all have septic tanks; we get them emptied once a year or so. Apparently the company that empties them then puts the waste on the fields. I have been told that this is permitted; not certain if that is true. We also sometimes have huge piles of grey 'dust' at the edges of the fields; this apparently is processed sewerage from London.

As long as the veg are well washed, I don't see that there would be a problem. Though personally I think my neighbours might object.
