Talkback: Five steps to winter compost

Posted: 18/12/2014 at 09:25

That all depends on the type of worms and the environmental Temperature.

If it does not suit them, then they will move away.  

I have had my compost frozen solid and they have survived fine.

Heirloom Beans

Simple answer is.

heirloom beans are untouched by genetic science or modern technology, something that has been passed down for generations through family members.

A varietal that has not been used in the modern large scale farm production, but rather passed down through family or farm from an earlier period in time.

OH has just been chasing a squirrel around the garden for ages trying to catch it, just as she was getting close it ran up a tree.

The car is now a write off.

Hunter is good make but they are expensive and have become a fashion brand name.

You can get fleece welly socks to go with them.

I had to explain to OH what the "L" and "R" Tags in her wellies meant.

"L" means left and "R" means Right. 

 she is now very happy as she also understands what the C&A tag in her knickers means.


Too much!!! Just say

Careful Alan4711

Jeyes fluid contains a chemical (carbolic acid) which is a phenol and these are toxic to cats. I have used it on tea bags to deter them though. They hate the smell. 

Wild Flower Identification Needed.

Definitely a coneflower. The spiky bits are the seeds.


Plant ID please.

Golden Glow Sedum or Nussbaumerianum?

Echeveria tend to have very fine hairs on the leaf and give it a dusty plume.

Preposterous question....

Tribute is lush- not an ale drinker myself but smells good on hubby, I like cornish marrow, orange and ginger wine myself.( home brewed!) 

apart from taste in drinks do not think we differ in multi tasking duties, I work 3 days a week and hubby 2 days a week, he is more of the domestic goddess than me. 

does a great egg free sponge for me, anyone else got any good recipes? 

( managed to OD on eggs any forced an allergy 3 years ago- bit of a bugger as love baking) 



Tried two things last year and loved them both along with everything else. Orange cake and his carrots.

Its at the bottom under Christmas carrots. Enjoy.


This needs a new thread, Sorry. Or a old one.
