Weeds from next door

Posted: 25/03/2013 at 12:53

I have similar problem with one of the gardens(in fact there are 5 gardens in all that run into mine and all are problem)that the person in question has lost interest and does no gardening hence I have a huge Rhododendron growing up my hawthorn tree and allsorts of over grown bushes and shrubs.We just lean over and hack at it ever so often but unless we get really nasty (which  one wouldnot want to) there is not a lot else.I chop off what comes over and pull the ivy away,annoying.

is will you use the extra hour next weekend

Lots of spiders....I think!

I had goldfinches,great tits,blue tits,wren ,robin and the returning blackbirds all rummaging around the garden for nest material until the bigger birds came down,good to keep them on their toes.

Is any one growing marrows

not at the moment waiting for better weather,wasted plants last year due to bad summer,I grow them in the garden plot.

Horticultural plastics

Posted: 24/03/2013 at 15:25

yes,a lot of plastic after a time breaks and splits not as good as terracotta or wood but nothing lasts for ever ,and I hate seeing bits of plastics and labels lying around that don't break down and disappear but stay forever in the ground.
