Any chance we can use the search facility and find out when a user name was last used, rather than just getting a highlighted reference within a thread or am I just missing something?

Referendum, Doesn't it make you spit!!

Nothing new ever happens by doing things the same way. Rules have to be changed/broken to discover new things. You will just let the years pass and then it's too late then to gain anything.

That's my bit.

The end.

Hi Sheps.

Your 3 huge cat litter trays look fantastic. Well done. They should go on the Pallet thread. (if appropriate)

I read through a bit of the above posts and lost interest about halfway through (there are so many threads on this (another £1 to Hosta).  I did see the spiky things and hope they work. I have only found 2 solutions to this problem one is old cut rose stems with the pricks. You just lay them down on the soil ower the bead so it stops them squatting. The other is called a Contech(other versions available?) ScareCrow Motion Activated Animal Deterrent and used a hosepipe and a sensor. 

It looks like this.

That's me barred again Ha!

Vermicomposting for begginers

Hello aym280.

Sorry for the late reply. I've been away.

Not sure I like you calling me "Young man"  but if you do not mind me calling you "Hun " Then we will get on.

Sorry to read about your past experience with  bought compost from shops. We all have it (just ask on here. the stuff they are selling is toxic!)  

Bought compost is peat with added chemicals.  That is it!

It varies from council waste that you (pay to) give to them, then heat treated  and nutrients added, then sold back to you. Basically what you compost in your own garden, should be. ( you do compost your own???) good enough.

Worm poo, or vermicompost is too rich to use in one go. It will actually stunt growth if used neat. It is a soil amendment and growth enzyme helper to help promote stronger plants growth and resistance to attack through bacterial/fungal attack and other growth diseases. It even stops insect attack.


You will have to mix 40% worm compost to 60% of your own sterile top soil / compost to get best results. 

Please take your time and read through the whole thread I supplied, above on hear and then ask me any other further questions you like hun.

I will answer any and all your questions, if you still do not understand after that.  

Kind regards

Hi again Pat E.


Are you now going into Autumn or Winter? 

The extremes of temp, between day and night must be a huge problem. I had never thought of this, with you down there. 

Hope things are well.

Whats this at base of lilly?

It will do its own thing but a little more compost will not hurt.

You might find that it does the same thing again after you have added extra compost! (many plants do this but for some reason I can only think of tomatoes at this moment. Nothing to worry about, it's natural.

EU. In or Out?

This is silly PD.  

of course I have no wish to fight with you or anyone.  

Out of the blue my name was mentioned by you.......please stop. 

See original post

 Pudemup Verdun!!!

No insult and i'm only estimating your age but can you remember entering the contract with the EU, in the early days???

There is nothing left to gain by doing things the same way. Nothing ever new was discovered untill someone broke/bent/changed the rules!!! The years will drift away from us and then it's too late then to gain anything. I hate this shower of sh*t that are promoting leaving the EU as anything to do with IDS is guaranteed to end in disaster and cost 100 X the original estimate (expenses excluded) Then again Osbourne has gone back on every budget aim (and more) while we still tighten our belts!

How will we ever Know if we don't change things. Sheeple (docile, foolish, or easily led. AGAIN.)

The pond has loads and loads of newts (common only so far) and some tiny fish. (Still looks like Scotch broth, sorry). There is a stream behind me and it flooded for 2 month over winter but looks to have improved the Oxygen in the water. ( No frogs or tadpoles, That is a bit strange?) 


The seed balls are starting to sprout!

WOW Faywray.

That looks fantastic.

What will you do next year with all the waste? Compost/ worm bin? 

Where will your waste go?  What will you do??? 


Vermicomposting for begginers

Posted: 18/05/2016 at 00:15

It's not all about NPK. (Stolen peat with chemicals added)

It's about the enzymes the worm poo produces and the microbes that help your plants survive and resist pest and diseases in the future! 

Vermicomposting  is more down to mould/Fungi production than the nutrients left over.

The worms have no teeth and only eat the mould on compost. (They do it fast though, when the conditions are right)

Adding TAP WATER that kills every bug for humans consumption, does not help your soil! It kills the lot!

Plus the hydrofluoric acid, That they add will reduce your IQ TO RESPOND TO THIS?
