Vine weevil larvae

I'd spread it out on a bare patch of soil on the veg patch ... the birds will come and get any larvae you've missed, then I'd rake it into the veg patch to improve the soil structure.

We're on shallow free-draining loam here, and I'm watering trees planted 12 months ago, fruit bushes and shrubs, clematis and vines that are about to flower and produce leaves - that takes a lot of moisture.  The problem is, I've almost emptied our water butts

Raspberries when do they start getting leaves

Posted: 02/04/2017 at 19:12

I'd wait a while - if you only planted them this winter they'll be getting their roots established first - then they'll begin to throw up some new shoots. 


You should have cut any old canes down to ground level in February - if that hasn't been done I'd do it now, and give them some fish, blood and bone and an organic mulch. 


If the soil is dry (it's been a dry spring)  a couple of buckets full of water won't go amiss.

I just use a Dutch hoe - I've been hoeing all my beds today removing hundreds of tiny ash seedlings. 

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?
