I liked the feature on developments at Sissinghurst, and look forward to more in future programmes.  The slow start to proper spring weather this year is slowing the programme down a bit but I'm sure it'll speed up as the soil warms.

crawling bugs in my soil - is it safe to use?

Agree with Nut, could also be leatherjackets ... hard to tell ... but the treatment is the same.

crawling bugs in my soil - is it safe to use?

Can't see them very well, but from a distance they look as if they may be cutworms - they've really enjoyed the conditions you provided them with.  I don't cover soil because it prevents the birds getting rid of the bugs for you - they're not harmful to humans but they may eat some of your plants - I'd just rake the soil over and leave it for a few days - the blackbirds and robins will come and eat them and by the time the weather is suitable for planting the bugs will be gone

Some people are arrogant - they think, 'this can't possibly apply to me' ...  but that's usually the very person they're trying to stop.

Gabions done well are fantastic - I loved the one on Monty's Big Dreams the other evening, with the ferns planted among the stones
