Its been drizzly here for most of the day, so the wood didn't get a second coat of the one coat preservative, that looks really patchy with one coat.

I have caught up on the telly though.

What are you allowed/not allowed, Clarington?

What sort of euphorbia.? I propagate E. griffithii from lumps of root with a shoot attached. Some of the other sort like characias, dip the shoot in sand to stop it bleeding all over and then try gritty compost.

a weed yet to be identified. what sort of compost are you using?

Clarington, you could always put him on rabbit food as well. Caring and sharing...

Compost help

If you have grass to mow, you could mix the entire contents of the heap with an equal quantity of grass and let it heat up and "cook" again. My kitchen waste never composts well over winter, and I always do this with the first cut of grass. I did it last weekend and the entire heap is now cooking nicely.

As Dave says. Dont put perennial weed roots (dandelion, docks, ) or seed heads(dandelion) in.

Oh, Punkdoc. Hope you are well soon.  Gardens are good for looking at. I often give my garden a good looking at.

 The vibrations are coming from across the road. They are removing leylandii and bamboo and putting it through a very noisy vibrating shredder.

The leylandii won't come back, but the bamboo will be back  up to 10ft in no time at all.
