Compost Heap

Posted: 06/10/2014 at 07:06

I'm going to turn mine thoroughly in just the way you describe (when the Under gardener has time to help me ) and then I'll cover the heaps and leave them for the winter.  We'll  have a look in the spring and see how they're doing.

Advice please - a climber for fence

What's the soil like - sandy/loam/clay etc and do you know if it's acid or alkaline?

How big is the area you want it to cover?

You're suffering from the gardening addiction that affects the rest of us here Derek. 

My life is very difficult as my OH works next to the garden centre and I often visit him at work

Your other half will appreciate all your hard work in the spring when your garden is looking lovely.  Bulbs are such an easy way to bring colour into your life

Thanks fro asking - much more like me today - have done quite a bit in garden. Then stopped as don't want to aggravate the good that is happening. Don't want to be like that again 

Wrist and bruises improving??

Much better now thanks - a bit achey sometimes and knuckles still sore, but almost back to normal really.  OH takes good care of me   Apparently he's taking me out to lunch tomorrow 

Take care of yourself - concussion can be nasty for quite a while.

Hi Derek - welcome to the forum - we're friendly here 

For the Clematis I'd use Fish, Blood & Bone or similar in early spring - Feb here in the UK. 

Bulbs and corms contain all the nutrition they need in order to flower so they don't need feeding now.  However, after they've flowered it's a good idea to apply a similar fertilizer to encourage the growth of plenty of foliage which will then feed the bulbs for the following season.
