Railway sleeper fixing

Posted: 16/08/2014 at 18:15
I have a long row of double height sleepers as a retaining wall for a large bank of soil. The builders did as KT53 describes and drilled through the sleepers and hammered the reinforcing rods into the ground. Solid as a rock.

Hello folks! Got friend's car fixed eventually by Green Flag's people. Then we had a late lunch and wandered around the garden. Since then we've been chatting and looking at photos. OH is home from the Farm Shop and we both have our feet up.

Friend is having a nap - she didn't sleep too well as she was worried about her car. She's insisting on taking us out for a meal this evening (going to the place I went with Snoodle and Panda after East Ruston visit) so the daube of beef can feed us another day. It'll keep for ages in the fridge, or I can portion it up and freeze it.

Gg, congratulations! Local hort. soc. shows are such fun aren't they?

Poorly prostrate rosemary

Rosemary's aren't very long-lived plants, but they do strike easily from cuttings. I'd take some cuttings now from some of the healthier areas of the shrub and year you'll have several small replacements.

Is it caterpillars or slugs and snails - they're the ones that eat my sunflower leaves.

Try some winter lettuce - Arctic King and Winter Density are two varieties that will grow happily in a cold greenhouse over the winter.
