What is in my compost heap?

Posted: 16/03/2015 at 19:58

I spread compost on my veggie patch today and noticed that there was a powdery substance in the compost. I'm wondering whether it is a type of fungus and if it will harm the soil.Can anyone shed any light on this? I would appreciate some info.

Thank you for your replies! I will try again as I love leeks and they are quite expensive to buy.

Every autumn I plant little leeks with renewed optimism and every spring they appear as skinny spring onions in spite of having been well fertilised when planted. I have sandy soil which needs a lot of feeding. Is it time I stopped trying to grow leeks?

 

help with yellow jasmine

Posted: 02/03/2015 at 08:02

I find winter flowering jasmine needs to be pruned from the base, otherwise you cut off all the next flowers. A frost will tempoarily kill off the blooms but more will come. They take readily from shoots which appear around the base and I have given away successful plants lfrom these.it is a wonderful plant once established but does better it can get a little winter sun. Good luck with yours

BIG BIRD WATCH

Posted: 31/01/2015 at 17:26

Perhaps some other people are doing a bird watch all at the same time. If everyone makes sure their feeders are topped up the birds have a choice of where to go! I always do two stints over the weekend and submit the most successful. 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Too cold here in Cheshire to do any gardening. I have checked the bird feeders and made a hole in the pond ice for my fish. I suppose that doesn't count though!

Thanks all for your very helpful comments. I will take your advice and move them as they are clearly not thriving where they are.
