I dont know what is is, but its not Jap Knot weed.

I think the big one at the front is a phlox. Is the red stemmed one a cornus of some sort?

You'll be late for the party on Friday night, Fairygirl. Get Verdun to send the helichopper for you. It should be able to land on the beach. Don't forget your swimming cossie.

Replacing conifers with hedge

If you mix the shreddings into the soil it will rob the soil of nutrients as it rots. I would mix any shreddings up with some grass mowings if you have some, and either compost in a bin, or in a covered pile somewhere to rot for a year. Then use as a mulch around shrubs etc.

You could even use a cheap dustbin.

Any spare stuff can be used in a compost bin, mixed up with any other suitable stuff such as grass cuttings and shredded prunings.

Rose growers used to use the fresh droppings to put around the roses, and then let it rot on the surface. Fresh stuff cannot be dug in as it is.

I would stack it in a spare bin, and let it rot for a year. If you turn it once and make sure it doesn;t get too dry, it will rot better. It is ready for use when it is crumbly and does not smell.

Yes, I used the glass ramekin things, but yoghurt pots work as well. Its just that we've eaten a lot of gooey lemon cheesecakes, and I cant bear to throw away the glass jars they come in. I collect seed in them later on in the year.

DebH, can you load using the tree icon in the toolbar to load a photo from your desktop.?
