Jamie, you need to type straight into the box, not cut and paste from elsewhere. I think if you do C & P, you have to do it as plain text.

Wormery question

Posted: 18/05/2012 at 11:05

My worms are on a bit of a go slow too! I would think it's OK to add a little bit more to the top tray as it's down to a third full.
My EDDC brown bin is useful when there is stuff that worms don't like or there is too much for them. As long as it's being composted I'm OK with that.

May In Your Garden

Saw the new collection of bins from Dorset County Council this morning. Think I might have to design and build a bin store for the front garden - as if I haven't got enough re-designing and refurbishing to do! Deep joy :- (

Thank you SV. Love the party hat :- )

The sun's back though it's windier than I would like.

Thankyou Frank. Lets put it this way - I fully expect a bus to pass by laden with goodies ;- )

The sun's gone behind lots of clouds now and the wind's got up but it's not cold like yesterday.

Sunny and very little wind here in .E Dorset. It's been sent especially for my birthday ;- )

Carrot fly

I don't know much other than that they don't fly very high off the ground so try a barrier of some sort.  If you put 'carrot fly' into the search box at the top of the page here, there are lots of useful links including a video of Monty Don deterring the little blighters!

Obviously no-one knows! If you ever find out from Mr Google or anyone, it would be interesting to know :- )

Lemon Tree

Astrid, my 30+ year old  tree from an uncertain citrus pip has some of those double-lobed leaves and had always been extrememly spiky. It's never flowered but that's probably because it lives outdoors all year round in a very sheltered but not very sunny spot in my East Dorset garden.
