I did Pdoc and awful headaches. And very tired for weeks.

 I'm still feeling more tired than usual after a bit of exertion.

Pdoc - one of my ears was very tender and so was the tonsil on that side, but it didn't get worse than that. Hope yours clears up soon. 

Harlequin Ladybird

I agree B3 - they're here - we're not going to be able to exterminate them, and at least they eat aphids.

If they do kill off the native ladybirds, and we try to kill off the Harlequins, we'll be over-run with aphids.

I leave them alone to get on with what they're good at.

Compost re-used

Posted: 10/03/2017 at 11:42

Is this Multi-purpose compost or loam based - Im presuming  it's MPC.

I find the MPC breaks down and becomes dusty quite quickly.   I'd perhaps re-use it once, but no more than that.  I'd also go through it carefully to ensure that no vine weevil grubs were lurking ready to eat my plants' roots.

I think Fish, Blood and Bone would provide sufficient nutrition to re-charge the compost - I'd then use some tomato feed when watering flowering annual bedding plants to keep the flowers coming.

Let us know how you get on
