Posting Issues?

Hi Steve - I believe it's a problem connected with an advert the site is contracted to run over some weekends - I understand that plans are afoot that will solve the problem but it will take a while.

Glad you can at least post now - well done Chicky

Honey fungus

Posted: 01/08/2015 at 10:37

I wouldn't even dig out the stump - I think it will do little that is useful.  I know quite a few lovely gardens that live along with honey fungus and there's a wide range of plants that it doesn't seem to affect. 

We don't have it here, but several gardeners on this forum do and I'm sure they'll be along soon to share their experiences and some tips.

So pleased

Ours visit quite a bit later, usually after we're in bed, but we can hear them pushing their dish of food around on the terrace and huffing and puffing as they wander around the garden.

Favourite native mammal?

Scroggin - love them   When we had the smallholding I'd watch them boxing outside my kitchen window in the spring.


So pleased

... Currently just doing a soil ph test, when digging to get soil from lower down i found so many (I think they're bulbs) deep in the soil, I guess I just pick all these out and throw them away? ...

I wouldn't throw them away until you know what they are - I'd leave them there and wait for them to flower in the spring - they could be daffodils, tulips, crocuses ...
all of them so welcome in early spring when nothing much else is in flower.
