Any chance of getting a small bag of aged, well rotted horse manure to mix in? It will add worms 

Bramley apple disease

Posted: 31/03/2014 at 14:05

One trunk ( main trunk divides into three a metre above ground) of an old bramley tree looks as though a coppery solution has been poured down it, reaching to ground level. Another trunk has lost a lot of bark but the third is normal colour and bark cover. the damage is on south east side of tree mostly. We live in the fens so are exposed to the wind. Can anyone help please? We would hate to lose the tree but have failed to find a diagnosis.     Many thanks.

Daffs etc that come up blind. I have read both to bin without exception and to leave them for another chance. Which advice should I follow please? Looks this year as tho' some established and some first year bulbs are not going to flower.

Hellebores - when to feed

Hi to all garden plotters. Delighted to find this thread and all the advice. Mine have done really well despite being overlooked in terms of feeding for a few years so am really looking forward to the display I will have next year after the tlc you have suggested, but being on the east coast in the teeth of this wretched wind, which is now drying out the top to a hard crust, I may wait a few more days! Many thanks.

Wild flower meadow

Posted: 10/03/2013 at 18:44

I have a 4m x 4m area which I am trying to convert to a wild flower meadow but living in an area of grade 1 agricultural land, specialist turf just went to grass despite the addition of yellow rattle. I am limited to the depth of soil I can remove by snowdrops and naturalised narcissus pseudonarcissus. Any ideas as how to impoverish the soil would be very welcome.

Wood ash

Thanks Andrew, I like the idea but not sure the worms in the wormery would feel the same. However it has made me think I could mix the ash with the compost from the wormery.

What is the best way to use the wood ash from our small log burner please? We get about half a bucket every 3 or 4 days. Do I have to store it dry first or can it be added to something immediately?  Are there any plants or areas which are an absolute no-no for it?
