you'll needed to get all the under ground root system out ,one tiny piece and its back,leave it on the compost and it will spread everywhere.drown bindweed in a bucket then place in green bin destined to a tip .

Orchids,the roots naturally grow out of the pot,they live in trees,they do not like gravel and most be watered with rain water not tap.they must dry out thoroughly and not left standing in water.stake  with a thin stick and tie.feed in summer and keep in warm room in half shade.they grow in bark and not earth.

herbs are so useful not only for cooking but for household cleaning,medicinal and of course they can be very fragrant.everybody should try and grow them.

I think you need to make your own compost and recycle the old with the new,The bulbs do take a break and like daffodils will "go blind"they will not flower every year if they need to be divided or another thing they are often spent from flowering and the young bulbs have to take over,nothing lives for ever.

Gardeners' World hibernating

now that's so cruel,baked hedgehog is full of needles,I think as you pick up the rubbish and feel if there is a lump that might be a rat or hedgehog,I think you ll find the rat will bite and squeal and the hedgehog  might just yawn.alternately you could start with a small pile and chuck stuff on top that you have checked,that way you can have fun with the bonfire  with a nice warm mug of soup to keep you going.

I plant mine out their OK,its their natural environment and you will need to stake them later on.sow lots ,have lots to replace if need be.

christmas is coming!

Thinking of what to hint for,since Christmas is looming and I know that certain people will be wanting a hint list.Well if I had a nice flat garden,a wheel barrow,I so love a wheel barrow,but alas there would be no point.I rather like those gardening shoes with no holes,could save time putting on the boots,or more gardening gloves.I think I have enough secateurs to last a life time and my favorite spade can not be replaced even if its tatty,and no more gardening books.Trowels ,no, got to many ,from fancy patterned ones to ordinary boring type.I have a shed full of pots of every size,although I am a sucker for those fancy ones.I think really if given  a choice (and I am grateful for anything) a garden voucher so I can indulge in more plants!Whats yours?
