Can I plant near a septic tank?

Well I did say 'now and then'. Ours now takes a fair number of years to fill up these days.

 

Little worms in water butt!

Easiest way to stop the larva is to put a solid lid on the water butt and take the water out from the tap at the base.

Can I plant near a septic tank?

Only the water from our Separation type dranage sytem (Septic tank system is different) goes into the field beyond our garden. If there are any germs in it then the wheat/barley/rape seed/potatoes which are grown in there are going to be affected. No, the usual system is such that the grey water sump is  deep underground and since gravity pulls the stuff downwards, the chances of anything from the discharge reaching the roots of plants are very small to non-existent.

About the only thing you need to watch is blocking access to the tank. It will need emptying every now and then.

Yet another mystery plant...

Do the leaves smell of Onions? Looking again the flowers do look like Allium flowers.

At least you got some, not one of the 12 seeds in the packet was actually Marmande. Sadly we cannot remember whose seeds they were.

Deep is the word. I follwed them down in one part of the garden to over a metre. And still they come up!
