Front hedge needs cutting problem with neabor

Posted: 13/10/2013 at 16:29

If its not your hedge and not overhanging your land, if you cut it , it will be criminal damage. Have a word with the owner to see if you can come to some agreement.

Plant pots

Is it biodegradeable for short term use, or hard wearing for permanent planting.?

 If its going to be green will it be made out  of recyclable materials, or have minimum amounts of non renewables like petrochemicals.? You can make pots out of coir, totally renewable, but the fuel involved to transport the coir is considerable.

The reason I have an aversion to eggs is my nan use to whip a raw egg through porridge for me as a kid, to build me up as I was a scraggy kid. I can eat scrambled so long as there are no stringy white bits in, but semi  boiled raw eggs makes me feel ill.

If I didn't have to work, and had loads of money, I would be diving and cuddling my way around Indonesia, Rajah  ampat, moving into Papua New guinea, and then working the islands up the Pacific.

I want to dive with humpbacks in Tonga, great whites off the bottom of Australia, and see pygmy sea horses in Indonesia.

I just need to win the lottery first.
