Filling a new raised bed.

Well rotted manure which has been incorporated into the soil in the previous year is fine for root veg, but fresh manure will cause root veg such as carots and parsnips to fork.

Digging up daffodil bulbs to replant

Plant them - if the growing tip is intact they'll survive although they may not flower as well as they would have.

Try digging up with fork rather than spade and also keep fingers crossed

..............  It looks as tho I might now be able to quote the text I want to using the recommended 'formula' - but it was also putting my own comments about the quote in the quote box.
Any ideas why what I'm doing wrong please?


Once you've got the Quote where you want it, make sure you move your cursor so that it's at the left hand margin of the box where you type - you'll see that the Quote is indented a bit

If you want to edit the quote e.g. delete a bit of it , I find it best to do that after you've typed whatever you're going to say.

Help! Waterlogged Ground

Posted: 01/10/2014 at 07:43

I've known alder to be perfectly happy in waterlogged clay, if it's given some organic matter around the roots to get it going. 

It sounds like a great project - I hope you'll keep us supplied with photos of the progress

Hi Oldtimer - many of us are getting on a bit here!

Tell your grand daughter, to upload pictures on here she needs to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, then follow the instructions.

If it doesn't work let us know
