To Fleece or Not To Fleece

Posted: 12/04/2014 at 19:28

I don't use fleece on any of those to stop pigeons.

It won't stop mice eating the peas.

It should stop carrot fly from infesting your carrots.

The main problem I have with wood pigeons is with brassicas. I use  Nets and dangling CD,s.

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Lovely stuff you got at crocus,Stacey. I would go, but like, punkdoc, it's just too far.

Pruning a magnolia?

I think you could cut them off after it has flowered. The sap is rising now so it may bleed if you cut it now, although as they are small branches you  would probably get away with it.

Plant Id please

If it's not put on too much new growth, you could cut it down and move it now with a big rootball.

Make sure you give it plenty of water through the next couple of months while it settles in.

Himalayan honeysuckle also known as Leycesteria formosa.

It will grow 5ft in fertile soil.

Definitely Japanese knotweed

Repeated applications of glyphosate required. .

Burn on site anything you cut down or dig out.

Do not compost or put in bin as this will only spread it.

Ooh I have serious orchid envy, Bill.

All over wintered compost now mixed with fresh grass cuttings for a reheat

Kale planted out and netted.

A few weeds dug out and the slug pubs reset.

Now for a longsoak  in a bath  and a glass of wine
