Has to be a four finger Kit Kat for me WW - the two finger ones don't taste the same at all. If I have to take two, perhaps I should add a couple more hills on to the walk to work them off...

What leafs should I use in a leaf mold pile?

Posted: 10/10/2015 at 09:24

Never heard that about oak - I've always just bunged all deciduous leaves into the pile. Keeping it moist will help it break down so make sure you water the pile in a dry spell. You can shred the leaves first to make the process quicker too Chris, which is also useful if you have lots as it takes up less space. You can put them on the grass and go over them with a lawn mower if they don't have a shredder. Turn them now and again as well and you should have a decent product next year, or the year after if the conditions aren't so good

Forgot about the rugby LP, as I'm not a fan. Will keep my fingers crossed though

buddleia stump

Not sure why I've never grown it - perhaps not had the right location because of it's colour - but I might try it in the shady back corner of this garden where it can grow out into the south facing back boundary up above the cotoneaster. 

We call it Flame Thrower up here...

Sad plant!

Looks like a Euphorbia to me too. They can take a fair bit of hacking 

I'd leave it till spring though and it'll really get going then. Doing it now and you'll risk it dying of shock
