Building New Raised Bed

You will need very sandy soil for carrots and parsnips preferably sieved with all stones removed. I would avoid fresh manure with them as well. 

Beetroots and courgettes will be fine.

SBK Brushwood and Tree Stump Killer or Roundup. will do the job. If needs must.

Yes Strebordale.

You can move it now but you will find that it will grow back in the same place as it was taken from. The roots are huge and it is nearly impossible to remove it all. 

If you want more just chop up the root and bury that.

Worried about potential soil contamination

Try contacting your local university or colleges. They often test soils as a student research project. Someone pointed this out to me last year and it has saved me a fortune.

A big Thank you to that member. I forget who it was now.

Highlight the name above the box. Then copy and paste it.

You might find the Ctrl + F button very handy for searching out specific names and words.

Dove try this and tell me what happend please.

Clear your Firefox cache and see if it helps, tools- options- privacy- cache- clear- okay (close and reopen Firefox to be sure). 

Does the same problem occur if you start Firefox via the Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode) shortcut in your programs menu?

Not enough room to paste it in for you Dove. I tried your PM but that will only accept 4000 characters and I will need a lot more. so no good. Sorry.

I do not have Firefox Dove but I think that Firefox thinks it is under attack so is blocking it.

I did find this link but it looks a bit complex to understand without having Firefox in front of me. Please have a read through and see if it makes sense to you.

Hope it helps. 

EDIT: I did a google for "Firefox is not letting me access Google" and found a few links. I do hope you have access to a search engine that you can use to look up the problem.

More bad news in France. It is a Train this time. It just getting worse for them.


Hope this helps Dove.
