If you send it Royal Mail it'll be well rotted by the time Hosta gets it
I have plenty of access to fresh stuff as I work in an Equestrian Centre. I created a border 2 years ago from compacted grass. Laid some on the top over winter and when the shrubs were put in ( with some compost added) they grew like mad.
We also use shavings - most horsey people do now, as horses gorge themselves on straw.
Normally, I would automatically assume front to back Lyn - but I thought the query could be taken either way!
Not like me to be on the ball at this time on a Friday
Do you mean depth as in vertically, or depth as in front of border to back?
Front to back can be as big as you want providing you have the room - and the time - to manage them. In fact, bigger always makes a better impact
Vertical depth of a bed depends on what you grow and how you manage your borders. If you add manure or mulches you'll create a better medium for plants to grow in - and most will benefit from that. Around 6" to 12" is what most people aim for as that's about the depth of a spade
Would rather eat my own hair than watch these programmes....
I love Jeremy Vine but the thought of seeing him in spandex and sequins.... I could never listen to his radio show again
It's probably the best solution - if you can get hold of enough cardboard!
Not what you might want in the garden, especially in an area that's easily seen, but for an allotment it sounds perfect.
Just a small update - I've had a closer look at the form and I think I only need addresses and postcodes if you're a taxpayer, and therefore ticking the Gift Aid box, as they need full details to get some dosh from the taxman.
Otherwise, I can simply put an initial, surname and the donation amount.
Or even A. N Other
Sorry for not being clear about that - it's all new to me too!
Bye Bushman - has he already gone?
Hope the sun shines in Fort Bill as much as it did for us a few weeks ago
Just been to dentist - our appointment was 2 .30 - the only time dental appts should be!
Think the song would be marginally better without Sam twiddling around in that falsetto voice....
doc - three hours drive even when you like your job is hard enough Hope you can resolve that
Bushman - it's good to see the stereotype of Scots having a short life expectancy being put to bed
Did 'Liz' turn your head and make you giddy then? You old scoundrel
Morning Clari - you sneaked in while I was typing
Right - I'm off to work. Catch you all later. Have a great day everyone
Morning lovely people
You sound a bit more like yourself Pat - is it the possum socks?
Think that's the best idea to get the French translation DD. There's loads of dictionaries online so, from memory, I think you just type that in. Hopefully you'll get a reasonable amount of botanical entries
I've plenty of smiles today Verd after all those sponsorship offers for my walk Here - you can have some of mine
Must be your device though
Look good pansyface
Would you use them spiky end up or put that end in the ground - or would it depend on what you wanted to keep away from the plants as well?
