it is truly a lovely place to walk , along a river and through apple orchards .Its where we walked our dogs until recently one had to be put sleep and the other is an old boy too and can no longer walk far. but we do walk here on our own now and enjoy the countryside.

Clematis and fir trees

I would cut them down as they will cause nothing but trouble and turn the soil acid .My neighbour allowed one to climb a leylandi and although it looked great for a time it became just as much a problem and the trees had to be cut down as they over took not only his garden but the one next door.

Yes grew one from  a conker in fact I still find ones growing with the conkers I threw away.They are easy to grow but you have to have a big garden to grow one.

What a lovely bank holiday weekend  just right for a walk in the countryside. The verges are full of wild flowers a month early. Comfrey and mustard are flowering and all those flowers we call weeds look stunning ,nature knows just how to do it! The trees  such as horse chestnut are flowering and look as thou they have candles .wonderful to see nature at its best ,lets hope it stays for awhile.

I when I feel full of energy,tie the stems up by bending the leaves over and using two leafs to tie it ,you have to do it gently  and it tidies them up until they die back.

GArden Fork Recommendation

the best ones are the old ones,I have my father-in-laws and one from the 70s,they are much stronger and you can re place the handles (have all old tools such as rakes,shovel, hoe ) and very few new ones as they don't last.where to find them? If not a relative in jumble sales and even dare I say it skips! found a old pair of sheares  and cleaned them up and they work fine.

Waterlogged land

I don't like weed killers ,if you de-weed the area and dig over and but chippings such as bark you will find that will stop weeds the odd one you can pull up.With a water logged soil your in danger of the weed killer seeping into other plants and shrubs and at the end of the day weeding is part of gardening.
