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.

seaweed

yes,I get some every time I go to the sea side,just a small bag not a cart load.I bring it back and soak it in a bucket of water to make a feed (it has everything you need ) and drain it off in a container using 50mls to the gallon of water(from butt) and the left overs  I chuck on the soil and let it decompose on its own and yes its good .

Lily of the Valley

I have them in the garden from when we came here,but they are on the decline.They like damp shady spots and do not like being disturbed and of course sometimes they need thinning out.if you leave them alone ,they will spread .

Greenhouse size?

Posted: 27/11/2012 at 16:00

The worst mistake in buying a green house is, buying one that's too small.We bought the 8ft by 4 and that is too small,unless you have no room and we regretted it ever since .Buy the biggest you can afford and have space for.
