compost bin alive with slugs

Posted: 22/09/2014 at 08:10

My compost bins are about 1m x 1m x 1m.  They're both full at the moment, so to turn them I'm going to  put a tarpaulin/plastic sheet on the ground and empty a bin onto it, stir it around and load it all back into the bin. 

HELLO FORKERS!

Plant disruption - Spring or Autumn

Posted: 22/09/2014 at 07:47

If your soil is contaminated by lead it can seriously affect the value of your property.  It's also not safe to consume vegetables/fruit grown in it - there are serious health issues - so if the council are prepared to sort it out I'd jump at the chance. 

To be honest I think I'd fit in with whatever timescale the council can offer - they rarely stick to them anyway - and use any ensuing damage as an opportunity to re-vamp the garden a bit - every cloud has a silver lining and all that

It looks to me like a verbena - possibly the one called Spanish Flag, or something similar. 

Not sure if it would be hardy in the UK - probably fine in the south west, so it depends where you live - it might survive with some protection - I'm sure someone who knows will be along shortly.

Mine always has a few bright yellow leaves at this time of year - pick them off before they fall if they offend your eye. 

If all the leaves go yellow then you have a problem some come back and let us know

Possibly a pigeon's egg, but it won't be viable now and it's quite ok to get rid of it
