Talkback: How to make a box ball

I made two like this (either side of the door) from cuttings I took myself.

For a trimming guide I bent a couple of pieces of galvanised wire into a circular shape, stuck them in the pot and trimmed the initial form around that.....I removed them after getting the rough shape I was looking for and now do it free-hand.

Due to circumstances, I used this rubbish last year on a piece of ground I wasn't able to cultivate.....I would say that it was a 50-50 mix of lack-lustre annuals & perennial weed seed. It's going to take me years to clean the ground again.

I bought mine via Amazon....you should read their dissatisfied reviews, unless Amazon has zapped them, as they tend to do.

David, you've changed your avatar 

Yes, just messing about, re a query in Camera Corner.

Don't you like it? I know my knitted snail was liked by some.

I'm with Mr Flowerydew with this....Moneymaker is pretty tasteless.

I think to have the true home-grown/greenhouse taste, they need to be slightly acidic...for me that would be Gardener's Delight or Sungold.

MG - Personally I change the file size of my pics in Photoshop when necessary. Having said that, I've just changed my avatar about half a dozen times with pics from my Windows library and they all worked okay.

I went into my GW account, then clicked 'edit' just under the existing avatar, then followed the on screen instructions. 

Hope you get it sorted.

Ah, slight misunderstanding  the compost I had in mind in my previous post was homemade compost, well rotted leaf-mould or perhaps from a wormery etc.....seed, multipurpose or potting composts are quite a separate item.

Of course, you will know your own soil best and will able to feed it as required.
