Linzy - No need for carpet. Horse manure (hope it is well rotted) & blood, fish 'n bone will be fine, just bonemeal on its own would have been enough.

Supports...it's really a matter of personal choice. Some like wigwams made from canes or hazel poles, others use pea-nets suspended between stout posts, or maybe twiggy branches....whatever you choose, remember they will grow to a least 6/7ft tall.

KEF - Muscari are fine, but they do like to spread.

Camera....I bet a few of our 75000 + lurkers have taken it on-board.

 Love it or loathe it, muscari (grape hyacinth) is quite pretty.

Just a thought, does anyone know why the cursor always wants to default to the beginning of the text? Meaning that it takes ages sometimes to get the smileys to appear at the end of (or middle) instead of the beginning and of very annoyingly at times...posting pics results in the last one posted always being at the top.

I've tried all the obvious solutions.

Louise - I have to agree, zapping slugs this way is a pretty yucky business.....stay brave, they will soon be romping away & immune from them (shall I change my avatar?)

I don't know what preparation of your soil you did prior to planting, but if you added compost/manure/bonemeal etc, they'll not need feeding until they start to flower.

What to feed? Providing it's a high potash feed, it doesn't really matter.

Which way should I place the railway sleepers?

Posted: 06/04/2014 at 09:32

Yes, pics would be good. Meantime sleepers laid flat are more stable when laid flat, but are okay laid on their edge if only being used in a single row.
