happymarion. That reminds me of Golden dewdrop, Duranta repens. How big is the plant?

covering the gardenbbbb

I don't think there is a need to cover the garden up here in Co. Durham baza. Dave is right.

Solarization does work but there has not been any sun up here of late and when we do get it its not that hot.

Are you thinking of planting straight through the cover to retain moisture?

Where about are you baza?

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

I mainly have general tidying up to do with my clients and then putting a new layer of compost down on the beds. All my clients have worm bins now so that is great!

I am looking forwards to planting my show onions seed on Christmas day ( its compulsory for me to do this on Xmas day.)

Had to look up 'Auricula Theatre' NGCARDS. What a pleasant surprise when i looked at the images. Its on my must do list now. 

Do you have any problems with the wind blowing the post off Berghill? It does look pretty sheltered there.

To cut everything down, or leave.

I think good management improves every garden. The best example of good management i can think of, is the difference between managed and unmanaged woodland. What a difference that makes.

Hello David W.

Your description is very clear but a photo if possible would help immensely.
