We have to pay around £40 a year for our green waste bin - I think I'd ask the neighbour for a contribution if they used it!

Chicken poo and straw

I'd stack it next to the compost bin and then add it in layers when adding lawn mowings, veg peelings etc. 

Turfing up to sunken birch trees- raising soil by how much?

Posted: 18/02/2015 at 10:22

The turf will contain air/oxygen and as long as it doesn't become over-wet and compacted  the roots should be fine.  Encourage worms in your lawn to keep it aerated

Steve - I've always found vets to be very patient.

Good morning all   I've just read back all of yesterday's posts - you were all so busy!!!  I've still got some house sorting to do - hopefully I'll get out in the garden next week (there'll probably be rain, hail, sleet, snow and tempest then!!!) 

Lovely to hear from Stacey and read all about everyone's gardens getting ready for spring.  Sorry about poorly pets   and poorly people ((hugs)) 

Daughter certainly feels that spending time in her garden has helped her - she says not to overdo things, just potter and enjoy the sunshine whenever it appears.  I bought her a gooseberry bush yesterday.

Hurrah!  Spring is springing

Purple sprouting broccoli

I agree - plant your brassicas in the ground and use containers for other things, salads, roots and beans are all happy in containers.

Purple sprouting broccoli can even look quite good planted amongst summer annuals in a cottage-style flower garden, then when the flowers are over you can take them out leaving more room for the broccoli to grow over the winter.
