No Bob, I didn't we spent all Winter clearing the plot of weeds, it has been left for two years unused so, only found out recently about Limeing when i saw another Gentleman using it on his plot, so is it too late to do it? Connie

Hi , thanks everyone for the info and help, might just stick to Daituoms idea for now, as my council would frown on me i'm sure for digging around in river beds !  & the fact i volunteer with a conservation group? it wouldn't look good, lol!

Hi i need advice please on what is meant by " River Sand?"  as i was told that is what i have to fill a dust bin with ,  then create long , deep cone shaped drills and fill them with John Innes no.3,  in order to get carrots long enough to enter a  local show.  I have never tried anything like this before so, any tips would be great , thanks Ruth

Something has burrowed into my fruit bushes???

Hi i pruned back my (inherited, with Allotment) grafted Red/Blackcurrant bushes last Autumn and they have been fine and even showing buds now  , but recently i have found the odd dead branch  & small holes burrowed into them? I haven't seen any grubs or beetles but, am worried about cutting off the branch  ( as in west yorkshire, it is still flipping cold!) & i don't want to damage my bushes, what do you think it could be? and what can i do please? ruth
