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.
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.
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.
Where's OL, Yviestevie? Have I missed her?
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.
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.
Trying to insert tongue smiley - ooh think it worked. http://yoursmiles.org/s-tongue.php used the oak tree, is there a better way?
