they like poor soil and good drainage and don't over water,remember to use the flowers and leaves plus the seeds for capers. you need to make sure it does not go to seed  and don't over water or feed.

Instant height - posts and chain, where to get them?

Posted: 01/08/2014 at 15:51

or rope and even wire, look in skips as I found reels of wire and wood all heading for the tip you may need to ask the owner of the skip but most are glad for you to take it! I have found old fishermans rope while on walks on the beach and used that for allsorts!and certainly wood posts would be nicer.

New raised beds, clumpy soil, advice please?

Posted: 30/07/2014 at 14:48

we have new raised beds from clay soil which over 38 years endless amounts of compost has gone in it .We have had to add more again and make sure you dig it over not just once  every time the bed becomes empty.We also grow potatoes in them first to help break the soil down. Its never easy with clay soil but digging and putting compost in will help.
