Help! Waterlogged Ground

Posted: 01/10/2014 at 07:43

I've known alder to be perfectly happy in waterlogged clay, if it's given some organic matter around the roots to get it going. 

It sounds like a great project - I hope you'll keep us supplied with photos of the progress

Hi Oldtimer - many of us are getting on a bit here!

Tell your grand daughter, to upload pictures on here she needs to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, then follow the instructions.

If it doesn't work let us know

Verdun - good luck - it sounds as if the care your mother (and presumably the other residents) really isn't as it should be.  Good for you for getting it sorted

Good morning all - a bit grey and overcast here this morning, but temps only dropped to 13.6C overnight - amazing for October

Our car is called Lola (she was a show girl, with yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there ........)

dehydrating chilli peppers

As Zoomer says, they don't need sun to dry - they'll dry just fine indoors in a dry atmosphere. 

dog proofing a leylandii hedge

Posted: 01/10/2014 at 07:17

I wouild put up posts and then use good quality chicken wire or chain link all along their side of your hedge.  Height and guage of the wire dependent on the size and determination of the dogs. 

Then fix gravel boards along the bottom of the wire to prevent digging under the wire - even the sweetest little pooch loves to tunnel!

This http://www.newatlanticonline.co.uk/products/gates-and-fencing/wire-fencing/ is a good website for posts and wire etc, so that you can get an idea of costs.  

magnolia tree dead?

Is that a new-ish fence by the magnolia?  If there's been some fencing work done nearby the tree roots might have been damaged and the tree might be taking a year off to recover
