Why has a thread disqppeared? Who decided?

I too enjoy the banter on here - I don't enjoy reading personal attacks on other posters simply because they hold a different view.  That is not banter - that is bullying


Thyme and sedum - plant them out now?

Posted: 20/11/2015 at 13:21

I'd rather trim them back and put them somewhere a bit sheltered where they won't get the worst of the winter weather, then plant them out in gritty soil in the spring.

If they're in the ground and get too soggy or get snow on them for a while they won't be happy.

I'm sure it was nothing to do with the subject matter - there was an aggressive post targeting an individual

The ash tree has two quite large trunks from just a couple of feet above the ground, so it's like felling two trees really - hence it costing £550!!!  Glad he knocked a bit off for the logs.  However, that does include grinding the stump out - that'll happen in a couple of weeks' time.

I've been thinking of the old Blue Peter Garden that Percy Thrower created - it had a sunken garden with a pond in the middle of it - but I wouldn't do anything like that without putting in some proper drainage.

Anyone heard from Lyn lately?  She's not posted since the 15th - hope she's ok

And what sort of soil do you have?

Do you know why the area is permanently wet?

We don't have any open fires here - we offered the timber to next door who have a log burner, but he said he didn't want to have split it and he'd just had a load delivered - so the tree feller is taking it away and knocking £70 off the price.
