Growing veg in an unkempt garden!

Posted: 01/04/2013 at 14:54

Bamboo is very hard to get rid of and if you put a membrane down it will grow through it ,I know it came through the pond liner.you will need to really take the task of digging it right out ,its a pain not easy to eradicate.conifers will turn the soil sour and you will not be able to grow anything near them .

Yucca's

you can separate but be careful how you do it and use good compost and they will grow on ,I have one that I had from a yucca that died in that year too,I don't leave it out in the winter now,put it in shed.

clematis Montana Elizabeth,in no time you ll have a lovely covering.

Clematis 'Rouge Cardinal'

Posted: 30/03/2013 at 15:47

It most likely wilt,but hopefully you planted it deep.I have had clematis is that have had this but have come back and started shooting growth again because I had planted them deeper.The ones I didn't died and didn't re-grow from base.dont give up on it just wait and see.

cutting grass while its snowing

Posted: 27/03/2013 at 14:30

no,not unless you want a messy lawn,leave well alone until its dried out and if you are doing electrically  the combination of wet and electric don't mix.Its best to leave it to a dry day when the soil is dried out,tempting as it may be.

what do u think this might be

Posted: 27/03/2013 at 14:17

I think i am not certain its a moth or butterfly,it will be fine as long as it is not disturbed.I had one in the greenhouse once and if I rightly recall it became a big green caterpillar,then a butterfly obviously.nice garden you have there the other side of the Severn.I am on hill going the other way ,Down.looks a nice big garden good Idea raised beds.anyhow its blowing a cold blast here too!!

Evergreen Bamboo

plant bamboo with care,it can take over and be hard to eradicate if you get fed up with it.If you should want to buy one buy the small variety .
