Wonky and I may be making a detour today which will lead us here

If you could choose just one plant for your garden from here, which would it be and why?

And for those of you who've got a fair idea of Wonky's garden and mine, what do you think we'll treat ourselves to?

There might be a prize for a correct guess!

Good morning Chicky  and the rest of you as you appear

It's a beautiful morning out there - lots of birds on the feeders - and I've just watched a large heron land in the neighbour's garden opposite, then sit on the leylandii hedge to swallow whatever he'd found, and take off and fly over our garden and back towards the marshes. 

I've a feeling they've a pond short of a goldfish - but it was a magnificent sight - I do love herons

I'm meeting up with Wonky today and visiting Ma.  On the way back we may take a short detour to a wonderful nursery just down the road ... I wonder what will tempt us ... I may start a thread ... think we could do with something to think about other than lives cut short and politics

He's a notty boy !

Please ... let's be friends ................ and if we don't agree let's just agree to disagree and move on ........ as we were reminded yesterday, life's too short to waste time being grumpy .................

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!
