Cap on soil

Posted: Yesterday at 18:26

With all the rain this winter my soil has developed quite a hard cap.  I am about to mulch with FYM - do i need to break up the cap before I spread the mulch, or will the worms do it for me over time?  I have quite a heavy clay soil, and the garden is all on a gentle slope.

HELLO FORKERS!

Yummy looking quiche Dove.

Hope arches arrive tomorrow as planned.

Pentemmon cut back here - most have survived the winter, and plenty of rooted cuttings in the GH to fill in the gaps

Lizzie - most of the English schools go back on Tuesday ( they seem to have been off for most of April) - so things shouldn't be too busy here

Missed your post, Dove.  How very sad.  Thinking of you ...

Will you be sneaking any garden visits in Lizzie.  Have a great trip

How do you all know so much

I agree - used to think i knew very little, but i am learning more every season.  I occasionally even answer questions, as well as ask them - wouldn't have dreamed of doing that a year ago.  The real joy of this site is the power of collective knowledge, and just how generous people are at sharing it.  The internet is a great enabler of that.  So thank you, Daniel and the team, for making it all possible.

Morning all, and a special morning for our good friend Dave.

Potty - sounds idyllic being that close to a beach - and great that daughter has inherited your passion for pots.

Am hoping to get out there for a bit of gardening later.  Little bit disappointed that my family are descending en masse for the day on Sunday, and it is the only day torrential rain is forecast 

......the good guys

Another good guy - Pine Cottage Plants in Devon - beautiful (huge) agapanthus arrived yesterday, as promised, and they even threw in a little baby one in a pot for good measure, which was a lovely surprise

Mine arrived a few weeks ago - no scabious, penstemmon instead...... No campanula, aubretia instead.  However, all are growing away well - just about to graduate to 9cm pots
