Fidget, thank you for your post, by this time next week I will only be able to enter the greenhouse, no longer a space to sit, no longer feeling guilty about the overcrowding.

What is your weather like? (2)

Quite a hard frost here in north Essex.

very bright and sunny.

Sloe gin recipes

Posted: 24/10/2016 at 08:10

At this time of year my thoughts turn to the making of sloe gin.

Over the years I have experimented and now include in some batches cloves and cinnamon.

I have also found that less sugar is more to my taste, and have again experimented with Demerara and Muscovado rather than Tate & Lyle.

Sloes not yet ripe in north Essex, but should be soon.

Just about the best drink on a frosty morning in the garden.

A local nursery is closing and I bought this fertilizer.

should I apply it now or wait till next year.

i am thinking of using it at the base of a yew hedge.

Question on a leaf mould enclosure

Posted: 25/09/2016 at 10:00

I have covered mine with old carpet, natural fibres only, and have had no problems. I sieve mine through an old supermarket wire basket when used as a mulch, but sieve again when I want it for potting plants.

yesterday sieved approx 800 litres and the top dressed magnolias and rhododendron, a very satisfying day.
