Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 02/03/2015 at 10:50

Gosh you've all been busy while I've been ill. About 5 pages since I last did anything. Daughters and grandchildren have gone this morning, feel weak as a kitten, but looking forward to getting going again. Garden is very wet, but sun is due soon.

HELLO FORKERS!

Better than I was, thank you, but temperature went up again yesterday. Take care Dove, if you are going out, keep warm.

Good morning all. Gloomy looking day, but sun in a couple of days time, hopefully.

RB, I haven't got an ipad so sorry, can't help.

New hedge

Tetley's mixed hedge is my favourite sort too, that's what my daughter planted, but to look it's best it needs a to be a good length to get the varieties in and I don't know how much room Nicky Nash has.

RB, I copied and pasted the url into the oak tree icon for sending photos, using the external site choice.

New hedge

My son planted an Elaeagnus hedge which is evergreen and has done very well, can't see through it. There are variegated ones too. I have one called Gilt Edge, but not as a hedge.

how to bulk up soil?

You can buy cheap compost to improve the soil. Or ask a farmer or riding stables if they have any well rotted manure.

The leaves in bags need to be moist to rot, with air holes punched in the bags with a fork, but it takes about a year.
