Please ... let's be friends ................ and if we don't agree let's just agree to disagree and move on ........ as we were reminded yesterday, life's too short to waste time being grumpy .................

Maxixrop for rejuvenating a hedge?

Posted: 21/04/2016 at 06:42

Hi Robin

I'm sure Maxicrop has given it a boost, along with the fresh air and sunlight coupled with the fact that spring has really sprung now and hedges all over the place have new buds bursting

I would also feed the hedge with Fish, Blood and Bone which is a slow release fertiliser so will continue to feed the hedge all summer - but give yourself a break, do it in a few weeks' time. 

I would scatter it alongside the hedge and top off with a mulch of some well-rotted manure or leafmould or similar. 

No need to fork in - the rain will do the job for you - we're bound to get plenty of that

 

 

Is this a senior moment or am I correct?

Spread it out on a tarpaulin or similar for a couple of days. The birds will soon take any grubs to feed their nestlings.

Where can I get Rabbit 'waste'?

All of it, all their bedding, straw and poop - high in nitrogen, full of the stuff that activates the decomposition of your compost - fabulous stuff Lorna.  You'll have the best compost around!

Is it OK to compost grass and moss which have been treated with mosskiller?

As Verdun says, I put the first three cuts in the council bin after applying a lawn treatment - they usually contain weedkiller.

Don't think I've ever heard anyone say 'spess', Dove.  Although as you say, that's the correct pronunciation.  'Spek' seems to be pretty endemic.  A bit like ground elder.....

They used to, back when I was involved in the building business ... standards dropped when I left ..........

Investigate the methods used in Living Walls - sometimes called Green Walls.

Can I add .... people who say 'spec' like 'speck' rather than with a soft 'c' because it's short for 'specification'
