I had work done on the garden and cordoned a patch off with sleepers to use as a bed. The problem is the soil within is in bad shape, loads and loads of old root systems from previous flowers and plants, weeds coming through underground from next door etc. Is there anything I can do over the winter to help make the soil better for the Spring? ie cover with a sheet etc, or should I bite the bullet, remove as much as I can and start again with fresh soil/manure?

Thanks for any advice

Replanting a Weeping Rose

Due to building work I am looking to replant a Weeping Rose tree i've had in the garden for about 4 years. I am literally only moving it about a foot, but it needs done. I know the summer isn't the ideal time but are there any MUST dos? Should I feed beforehand, should I prune hard, etc etc

New turf on old flowerbed

Posted: 14/03/2016 at 12:46


We have a flowerbed running the length of our western fence. We have let it become overgrown as we concentrated on other parts of the garden and the soil is very heavy. We are now thinking of laying new turf over the bed to extend the lawn to the fence, better for our two-year-old to run about on.

I was wondering how much prep work should go into the bed before laying the turf? There are weeds and grasses and old roots, do we need to get rid of it all, ie, below ground level as well as above or will the lack of sun stunt most of them? Due to its location the bed doesn't see much sun, and never really dries out on the summer, will this not have an adverse effect on new turf as well?


Any advice is appreciated

Hi, I've had a rosemary plant in my flowering bed for about 3 years, it started as just a shop bought small plant but is now a couple if feet tall and wide. I use it all the time and only ever cut into new wood. Over the last month, for the first time, there are small blue/purple flowers all over the plant. Have I been eating an inedible rosemary plant?! Or has it run it's course?? Any ideas greatly received

What Seed Potatoes do i get?

And remember when you buy a bag of seed potatoes you will get a lot of them. Dont be tempted to put too many in your grow bags, if you're using them, two a bag is enough.
