Help making feed for plants

Comfrey is looking good at the moment. If you have any near to you in wild areas, gather as much as you can , stuff it in on old dustbin, and put a weight on it. dilute resultant brown stuff to colour of weak tea before using.

Hi, all, I spent a pleasant afternoon at Felley Priory .  A steep walk up the hill to the bluebell wood, but wow, was it worth it. I have never seen such a thick carpet of bluebells. I will post pictures later. I have a builders bag of gravel coming tomorrow, so I can fill the raised herb bed up. Now all I have to do is get the neighbours to park on their drives, instead of across my rear access.....

Still if they get it scraped by a huge pallet lorry, maybe they'll answer the door next time I ask them to shift it.

I think they filmed most of it in Yorkshire. The sea bits might be cornwall.

Is there a flower bud in the middle, it looks like an allium.

What are these balls on my oak leaves?

They look like galls, possibly oak spangle gall.

They are caused by a wasp, they will not harm the tree.


Hot, dry garden

Cacti or succulents should cope with the heat. Most other plants , apart from the palm trees that you have already, will need some shade protection from the heat.

David, I am sure we have many members who would allow you to do a free demonstration in return for an unbiased testimonial. Then you would have some good backup for your marketing campaign.

Where do you live, Pete.

Many local growers advertise in the local paper. My mum grows 15 varieties, but no mail order.
