How to build a compost bin

Posted: 28/10/2013 at 17:50

The only reason I suggest  its a male job, is that its hard work balancing on top of the heap for us females.

I could use a bucket I suppose.

The  lizard bedding and stable manure, I would just mix it well in, and make sure its wet.

If its 6 metres from your fence, You have no right to cut it bck. I thought it was overhanging your fence. You have no right to light over a neighbours property.

Will broccoli sprout again next year?

Posted: 28/10/2013 at 14:04

If it survives the winter,and you feed it in spring,you should get useable spring greens from it, as fresh leaves. The summer broccoli type often don't survive the winter though.

 Cabbages, if you cut a cross in the stalk when you harvest it, will often grow new leaves that can be used, even if they are not hearted cabbages. It extends the season a bit.

Thanks, Daniel. I am sure we will all feel better for it.  Lets get back to gardening chitchat. As I have said before, we offer an opinion, which may or may not agree with someone elses viewpoint, because we all have different gardens and experiences. There is no need for slanging matches.
