Talkback: How to make a composting trench

Posted: 30/11/2012 at 15:17

my husband does a trench each year in a different spot ,this not only helps to spread the compost to each part of the veg patch  but rotation prevents the spread of diseases.

May I introduce myself ?

Don't  take to heart what people write on this page, we are all keen gardeners and love growing things and sometimes we get a little misguided by things.we all have op ions and voice what we feel ,it does not mean we are not interested ,we are.If you like we are all gardeners of the world responsible for the way  we farm or garden.We can learn from you and you from us in how to help each other that's what is important.so do keep in touch .

Hazel

Posted: 30/11/2012 at 12:53

My grandchildren planted some Hazel nuts some years ago and they all survived and grew into little trees.I did not like to dispose of them after such loving care and offered them to my daughters ,also to a young girl who was getting married and who wanted trees to plant in memory of her special day.I planted one myself which is the tree in my garden now ,and planted some into my sons hedge I was making him.This Tree has been more than worth it .Providing entertainment from the Squirrel who borrows  the nuts in my flower border to the birds who nest in it.It also provides me with nuts (when the Jays and squirrel are not borrowing them).I did think of cutting it down but I would lose a good Tree that provides a lot for wildlife and me.

just heard in the garden that clacking sound of the red wings they have arrived! I also saw in the churchyard a group of Jays sitting on  a tree,they are so colourful and normally they are quite shy but I got a close view today.

I had that rose for years ,very good flowering and hardy but alas it succumbed and died and I failed to take a cutting.

Holes in soil

hover flies by the looks of things,they are good for the garden,or bumble bees but they are normally single on their own,I take it they are small holes.

Frost

your right,more damage can be done messing about trying to be too tidy.You will find seed heads and all sorts look amazing with the frost on them.The only thing I did a bit late in the day was to bring my clay pots in,don't want them splitting.

siting compost near greenhouse?

Posted: 27/11/2012 at 16:18

I have long narrow garden so the compost bins have to go near the green house and it makes it no difference .Of course the visitors to the compost may give you the odd fright when your working a way in the green house.(rats,mice) and i don't mind the fox or the cats as they dispose of the rats and mice.
