 Stollen anyone?

I should think it'll be the Bocking 14 strain - think it's a type of Russian comfrey.

Strap them on the soles of your shoes and stomp up and down?

Ground cover between veg?

Posted: 23/12/2014 at 14:56

I'd rather tickle around for a few minutes with the hoe once a week.  Ground cover would compete for water and nutrients and provide a lair for slugs, snails and other baddies. 

If growing something between your veg plants was ok, why wouldn't we leave the weeds?

Nope - I've just been around a long while, known lots of interesting people, listened to Radio 4 a lot, have an insatiable curiosity and one of those brains that just hangs onto interesting snippets of information.

Awww,what a happy picture!   and that reminds me Dd - we had the loveliest rescue dog (well, a bitch actually) GSDxLab called Hodge - she'd been the companion of an elderly lady for two and a half years until the lady passed away - Hodge was the sweetest-natured thing, and for the first three months at least she was always behind me, wherever I was, at the sink, at the ir*ning board, at the cooker etc - I got used to doing a sort of shuffle backwards before turning round so that she moved and didn't trip me up!  She was lovely

What would you do?

What a lovely little area - what my Pa would call a Spinney.  I'd go for a hedge of hazels, a wildlife pond, some ferns, foxgloves, native English bluebells, primroses, snowdrops, native daffodils (narcissus pseudonarcissus) maybe some hellebores, ragged robin .... shall I carry on .... I could keep going for ages ....

That lot would virtually look after themselves
