Hi Ann Flo

Can you post a picture of these weeds please, so we can see the whole plant, leaf shape and flowers if possible.  To upload a picture click on the Tree Icon on the toolbar above where you type your post and follow the instructions

Think you've hit the nail on the head Greg4 - so many gardening programmes (and garden shows) are driven by the marketing of hard landscaping and similar.

Yes - we dilute it in a bucket - roughly half a pint of 'product' topped up to half a bucket with water then poured over the compost and then fork the compost over to make sure it's spread out fairly well.  We don't add it in the winter.

My daughter gets Tortoiseshells hibernating in their Victorian apartment - she relocates those she finds into the old brick garden shed which is dry and just about frost free. 

We move ours into the garage.

Hello Pentillie   Have you been hibernating?   Hope you've not suffered too much in that weather you've been having down there!


We always use Recycled Beer & Cider on our compost heaps, as recommended by Bob Flowerdew - OH is always happy to help

Snowdrop Walk - East Anglia

Posted: 09/01/2014 at 09:04

Some time ago we discussed the idea of meeting up occasionally to visit a garden .... is anyone interested in meeting up to do a Snowdrop Walk in East Anglia late Jan/early Feb?

 I was thinking of Anglesey Abbey as it's fairly accessible and we'll be able to have tea and cake, but some of you may have other ideas?

Once we decide on date and venue etc, I suggest that anyone wishing to discuss more detailed personal arrangements should use the Private Message facility or swap email addresses.
