Weed killer.

Posted: 13/05/2015 at 20:29

Has anyone ever used a product called Totril. It is a selective weed killer. I have enquired at our local garden center today, and was told they had not heard of it. Maybe it is only available in commercial horticulture. Any help would be appreciated.

Thrilled to bits, for at two twenty this afternoon there was a swallow on the wires, in the farm yard. Thank goodness we left the barn door open to make them welcome. For these parts they are early, usually late April.

Ponds.

My old pond sprung a leak a year or two ago, probably caused by plant roots piercing the liner. Hence no longer contains water. I would dearly love to have frogs again, and am wondering if there is a minimum size of "container" which would allow wildlife to live and thrive.

Lovely dogs, Blessed if I know how to submit photos. I know how to drag and drop, but that method doesn't seem to work. Oh dear!

aged manure advice?

Posted: 13/03/2015 at 21:22

I find it surprising that anyone needs to buy manure from a garden center. So much available from farms, most of it free I'm sure. Oh dear, how fortunate some of us are!

Goodness! So glad I posted. The two sites suggested by LucyL and GemmaJF have pleased me no end. I was unaware of their existence, but now I will be visiting often. Thank you.

This section of our gardening forum is, I feel, so valuable because as far as I know it seems to be the only one in regular use. I remember a few years ago, the RSPB ran a forum, but sadly no more. Also the BBC Autumnwatch and Springwatch allowed us to post our sightings and views. This one too came to an end. Such a shame, when one thinks of this massive subject.

Which company to order seeds and plants from...

I would highly recommend Suttons. A good catalogue, I find. Also D. T.Brown

In response to Palaisglide, hello Frank! As this forum is run by Gardeners World mag,I guess I originally thought the subjects we could chat about would be connected to gardens, i e wildlife, and the other headings we regularly see now. Maybe I didn't delve deeper, or was afraid to introduce other unrelated topics.

Would you pay more for a pint of Milk ?

So nice to see so much agreement regarding the appalling price of milk. Coming from a long line of farmers, on both sides, it bothers me no end, to see so few dairy herds in our lovely countryside. Also a great deal less pasture land to wander over.
