Update. Bloke went in and investigated. Slow worm which I relocated (bloke don't like snaky things!)

Help - Massive Bramble problem

Posted: 30/08/2012 at 19:01

I don't know if anyone else will agree, but I have noticed that brambles root when the stems touch the ground, so maybe cutting down top growth will limit further new growth. If you have an agricultural store near you, I'd visit it and see what chemicals they have to help, if that is acceptable to your gardening practice. I seem to remember that there is a potion ( not cheap I fear) that is effective. And would endorse yvonne1's advice - DON'T ROTOVATE.

But back to today's drama. SOMETHING has taken up residence in my shed, which houses spare fridge and freezer. It doesn't scuttle like rat/mouse, but there's definitely something there.

I now have Olympic gold and silver toenails. Shame it's so cold, they can't be seen under socks.

Probably not the response the poster hoped for! Hurrah, hear the melodious sounds of chainsaws from next door, they're cutting back one of the humungous beech trees, so I should get another hour of sunshine at the top of the garden.

which veg garden planning methods do you use?

I thought the same yesterday. I suppose it's possible to sign up multiple times with different usernames. At least the posts stimulate creative thinking! Off for a pedicure shortly, glad I know how deep corn roots grow...

why don't people bother to read post before answering them.

Don't worry...good enough to share round! Eerily enough I'm having a pedicure today (and having Olympic Silver varnish). Maybe I should go for Corn Gold instead.

Overwintered runner bans

Left the roots in after clearing last year's crop, they've survived the winter and putting up new growth.
