Help for flooded gardens

Posted: 29/04/2014 at 18:51

Tuesday evening bump; just been making more pathways on the veg bed; treated timber gravel boards covered with chicken wire. Hard work on the hands.

Sooo looking forward to May 1st when a whole load more cuttings come out of their zipper freezer bags. So far I've had about 95% success with cuttings, which is amazing since what I know about cuttings would not cover the back of a postage stamp

Budget patio ideas?

Justine; are you any good at applying concrete? I saw something in the West Indies that might work and be cheap-ish. Use a jack hammer to break up the current surface to use as hardcore. Pour on cement, preferably tinted to look like york stone/sandstone/whatever. When it is starting to set, using a suitable tool (of your own devising) scribe into the concrete to emulate the dips between real stone.

nin, whatever wind born seed is landing by your veg; just rub your hand over the soil as the seedlings achieve a height of 2 or 3 mm. That pulls them out by the root and at that small size they will have no resources to survive.
