Unpleasant adverts

Posted: 18/04/2015 at 09:22

I don't get any ads on this site or any other - just use an ad-blocker 

Algorithms can pick up on combinations of odd words - ever googled 'nature' and 'bluetits' ??? Or even Rubus Cockburnianus?

I think it's feasible - bigger would be better, but that would be fine - and at that size you need have no fears for child other than it will become obsessed with wildlife and grow into Chris Packham No. 2 - which can only be a good thing

I agree, beech or hornbeam would be lovely there - or holly

But yes, you'll have to replenish the soil first.

Can I divide watermelon seedlings?

Never having grown watermelons I've no idea how much they'll dislike it, but I'd do it anyway - growing so closely together will impair their growth so I'd go ahead, do it quickly and gently - I reckon they'll be fine
