When to net blackcurrant bushes against birds?

Posted: 15/04/2013 at 16:52

if you want to net the fruit that's o.k and do this ,but at the moment the birds are looking for insects to eat off the bush,such as sawfly larvae which does a lot of harm which birds help to keep at bay.My self,and I have a lot of fruit bushes don't bother that much about the birds ,they do take some but I have  more than enough to share.I have seen a good fruit cage which covers a small area and lets you stand up and work with in.

Removing block paving and laying Turf

Posted: 15/04/2013 at 16:42

HURRAH!at last someone has seen sense in this awful craving for gravel,grit and paving.I can understand if you have a very small front garden or a car to put in the drive but lately all front but a lot of the gardens big or small have been taken over by this lazy mans crazy for not mowing a lawn .Who wants unnatural material that's lifeless ,grass is alive and gives life to wildlife and you.Re- move the sharp sand and put the top soil on,that's my opinion .good luck and enjoy your lawn.

Any advice on hand-push lawnmowers?

Posted: 15/04/2013 at 16:33

I have old push lawn mower and it cuts the best,its costs nothing to run and just a bit of oil in spring .It gives that plesent sound to mowing not that high whine of electric.Green as anything for the enviroment cause it out live you.

that's it ,leave Monty alone,the only person responsible for the plant disaster is buyer(the person who buys for the shops from the nursery)stop looking for scapegoats and just accept its a bad start to the year.

No balls!!!

That's human beings for you,we permanently destroying our plant then try to put it right!We cant just have what we want and like,and people like that are short -sighted but its much the same for those pave over  the gardens the main reason hedgehogs are going on the endangered list.

Bee spotting

Posted: 04/04/2013 at 13:55

saw one bumble,by the way if you have a water butt and the pipe leading into the container is not a close fix or if there is an open space put a little mesh cover across(an old pair of tights chopped)to stop the bees going in and drowning as I found some years ago.I had a few victims of drowned beesand since they are precious this is what i do now.

Nothing will grow - suggestions please!

if you had conifers there the soil will acid and nothing will grow untill you replace the soil,I had that problem.
