I think you are right.   What do other people think about it I wonder?

Can I call the compost from my heap organic?

Posted: 25/01/2014 at 17:37

I like to be organic and make good use of the compost in my compost bin, however I put peelings from my supermarket bought fruit and vegetables, which are usually not organic. Can I  describe my compost as being organic in this case?

Greenhouse cleaning

Posted: 25/01/2014 at 17:21

I have read somewhere,( probably my last issue of Gardeners' World magazine) that it is a good idea to steam clean your greenhouse if you have a small appliance. I am going to try this.  I have used Jeyes Fluid before and this has worked very successfully for me but you have to remove all the plants from the area for a little while until the fumes have disappeared, which is inconvenient if the weather is bad.

Hello Wendy   

70 days until.......

I'm with you there Tracy. I once wrote a "bucket" list of things to do in January to cheer myself up. Going around my garden was high on my list. Even though light levels are low I think it's important to get as much fresh air and daylight as possible. Gardening is my anti-depressant and tranquilizer and I do suffer withdrawal symptoms in the winter. Bring on the light!    

Covering an Unsightly Fence

Posted: 16/01/2014 at 15:34

I wonder how high your fence is? I have grown two holly trees, a pyracantha,a climbing hydrangea, a Rowan tree and other sundry plants in front of my fence.My other half put some wire, fixed onto the concrete posts, across each panel and now the fence is hardly seen in the summer time.

I find that birds damage polyanthus and primrose flowers, particularly yellow ones for some reason.
