Shrubs for birds' nests/cover

That's going to be great, especially with those climbers as well - just what the birds need.  Glad to see your robin has signalled his approval

Weed Killer

Posted: 12/10/2015 at 06:13

That's what I'd do Fidget - I'd dig over the allotment again, getting out what weed roots etc that I can.  Then in the spring I'd treat any re-growth with Roundup.

Remember to leave the weeds long enough for the Roundup to take effect.  They need to be brown and dead before you pull them up otherwise the glyphosate won't have got into the roots and any little bit left behind will regrow.

Good luck

I can't see very clearly ... does it have a sort of horn-like thing on one end?

Anyone done any gardening today?

I cut down the runner beans and the haulms hae gone to the compost heap. The cane teepee has been deconstructed and the canes tidied away and dug over and weeded  that whole area ready to sow the broad beans later in the month

Geranium Problems

Posted: 11/10/2015 at 17:04

Don't feed it at this time of year - it needs to slow down as the weather gets cooler and daylight hours get shorter - also keep it almost dry.  Pelargoniums (not called geranium nowadays, they're something different) need hardly any water in the winter. 

Take off the poorly leaves and put it in as sunny a spot as you can find and don't water it for ages and ages.
