Thanks landgirl. I paid about £20 for my last pair, but I'm a bit disappointed. I seem to be continually sharpening & even though I oil them they keep sticking. Perhaps they're all like that.
I need to buy some new secauters & would appreciate any advice on the best make. Also, am wondering how much should I be prepared to pay.
Talking of honeysuckle, does it like particular soil & position? I have one that never does very well. I've tried it in two positions, giving plenty of time to get going, with not much luck.
I transplanted mine into the cold greenhouse at the end of the year & they've been fine, I did the same last year & after replanting they made a much earlier show than buying small plants.
Many thanks for all the good advice. I think I'll be giving Adi's a visit on Thursday. I'll be posting later in the year with the results.
Thanks Dovefromabove. I'm thinking of using chicken pellets a few weeks before planting up, does this sound like a good idea?
Thanks for your reply No Expert. No I haven't fertilized the ground this year. I've just used my own compost. My reason for asking for advise is that last year I think I used too much fertiliser on my beetroot as I had very small roots with & all tops.
I'm fairly new to to veg growing, so I'm wondering which fertiliser & how much I should use on potatoes, beetroot, runner beans & onions. Thanks for any help.
Last year I made the decision to chop down the apple tree. I'd been thinking about it for a long time as it was in the wrong place, too near the oak trees & never produced much fruit.
I have several hydrangeas in my garden & I notice that if I trim them right back to a decent bud in the spring, they do really well. They also seem to like plenty of rain early in the year.
