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'
