I hired a large rotavator and a friend for the day just to dig out and turn over some waste land ok my front garden as I've been unwell for two to three years now and was sick of looking at a jungle I loved three years ago. I had brambles also self seeded ash trees.

any way on to the subject It was honestly the best £170 pound I have ever spent. £100.00 for the week and 70 pound for my mate ok it took three days to dig the tree roots out and one day for 40 sq meters.

and now ten tone of pea gravel later it is looking so much better.

if your going to put grass down it will help if you rotavators manure into the ground any way as it will help with drainage and feed your lawn.

just my 2 pence worth  Clueless

I'm just about to embark on cutting my Irish ivy back and as this is a big volume job in taking it to the local tip/recycle centre I was going to shred it down and compost it as brown material in the compost with grass and horse manure but I'm a bit reluctant as I don't want ivy all over my garden next spring.

would you add it to compost or just tip it ?

I've just read that you should sow onion seeds in what to do now.


show I was just wondering if it's a waste of time to plant Alliums  as I've just found a bag of twelve in the potting shed bought in November ??

Morning everyone it's been a some time since my last pot (been on holiday,

But I'm back how ever I'm still plagued with a bad back it's really stopped me in my tracks.


any way back to this post now I under stand that Tomatoes are re-potted to a depth of the first pair of leaves and I'm sure sun flowers are the same is this correct and is this the same for all seedlings ??
