... Is that what the young think of us?

See original post

 Yes, we saw it ... not sure if any of that lot are capable of thought BL ......never seen such a bunch of inadequate self obsessed no-hopers. 

I wouldn't employ any of them to clean windows, let alone anything else.

moving box / leylandi

As box has a root ball system & leylandi roots grow sideways  how do I remove the box without damaging the leylandi?

 I'm not sure that you can  ... five foot trees will have quite established roots which will be intertwined  .... and I'm concerned that where the leylandii and box meet the leylandii will be brown and when you remove the box the leylandii will not green up.  

Primula neck rot

When I grew auriculas I followed Barnhaven's advice

"... A gritty compost is recommended, with a top dressing of limestone chips to keep the neck of the plant from going soggy ..." 


"...  Removing dead leaves and stems that come away easily does help to avoid rot.... "

Two opinions about ash containing firelighters 

2 level garden worth converting to 1?

Posted: 19/10/2017 at 10:34

My first thought would be to investigate the current water table ... you don't want to have water draining from the neighbour's garden to yours and then down to the other neighbour's garden.

Also, a 6 ft fence will not 'retain any exposed boundaries' ... you'll need something much more substantial.

Glad you feel they're doing their absolute best for you Pdoc ((hugs))

As for the age of doctors and policeman ... I remember accompanying our new senior social worker to visit a parent who absolutely refused to believe that she was old enough to drive, let alone that she was a qualified and experienced social worker ... she was 27 ... really. 

Liri ... there are some very good people in the world   ... does he have a favourite charity you could make a donation to?  

Carboard mulch question

Posted: 19/10/2017 at 09:37

I don't like using cardboard or other sheet fabric as a mulch ... in my experience it provides the perfect conditions for slugs to lurk and breed over winter.  

I'd rather weed the area, plant and  then mulch with wood chips or bark mulch.
