For those with cat, fox or other animal problems....

Posted: 04/03/2014 at 19:29

we have foxes and badgers plus cats that burst through the fences leaving a hole to be repaired  so in the end we decided to leave one hole for them all to pass through but on the whole we live with how it is and clear up if we have too and devise all sorts of home protection for the seeds e.t.c. that don't cost a thing.

Manure

Posted: 01/03/2014 at 16:58

depending on your soil(at the moment I can not do a thing as my clay soil is waterlogged) I would dig a trench and put your manure in that ready for your beans and really you needed to put it on well before you need to plant out or put seeds in. My husband does this in autumn and early spring usually.

Pruning a baby clematis

Posted: 01/03/2014 at 16:48

if you have just planted this and it is small, I would not prune this year, make sure you planted it fairly deep and water each day until established .I have found that until they are settled and showing more growth its best to leave alone for the first year, I have lost many due to cutting to soon.

Multipurpose potting compost

Posted: 17/02/2014 at 13:22

for seeds I buy seed compost as seeds must not have to many nutrients to start with as they will go gangly also the soil is sterilized but for multipurpose I don't bother and make my own which is cheaper if for some reason I need  a bag of multi I but a cheap grow bag which is just as good as many of the multi composts are peat and perlite and expensive.

Allotment newbie, any clay-related advice?!

Posted: 17/02/2014 at 13:17

from someone who has clay soil I can tell you  you will have to dig a lot of compost peat  or similar to make it work ,if it has been worked over the years it might not be to bad but you will need to dig and put new compost in and possibly lime it too.
