Spring 2013 vs Spring 2014

Posted: 06/04/2014 at 21:05

looks to be a good spring even if the soil is soggy

next season

I have to say I have found a few bargains of late and the latest is 50 daffs (mixed) for 99p.Well you might think that is a little early but you can either keep them or plant them for next year. So madly I have bought another 4  bags so I hope I have enough space. I also thought Verne complete compost for seeds e.t.c. good value and good quality at £3 for 50 litres, I buy this as I run out and never enough compost from home made . Anyway that made my weekend in the rain better!

Please help a novice gardener

of course ,if you dig it out with plenty of earth and do not damage the roots .Dig a hole deep enough to take it with a bit of compost and place bush in and fill in  and tread earth down and water daily for a year so as it can take root. It looks healthy enough .

I.D. please?

wild cherry, what's up with it

maybe  it might need a prune or it is sterile as in it wont produce blossom or too close together so it cant get enough substance or water, other wise perhaps it feels a gooseberry.

too be honest  my husband joined two hose pipes he found in  a skip together and they work fine for the 100ft plus ,nothing special but it works.
