Plants for narrow border

how lovely to live in Dorset it is a lovely place,Hardy country,my favorite well one of many we visit often.Narrow border is my problem too on one side  but I think that sounds really nice and worth watching the bees also could do nightly scented stock that will give evenings on the patio a lovely scent to sit by .

the old book says not to put a rose bush where a diseased bush has been for awhile,and I would not for a year or so as viruses can lay dormant for awhile and I know mine when I have planted earlier have picked up the disease .

vegetables and horse manure

with horse manure you must let it stand for 6months before using not only because of the burn damage to crops but also parasites or viruses that are in the manure.the heat of composting will hopefully destroy them.

is re-cyling your green bin ,a good thing?

I read with alarm at the news that weed killers that have been included in the re-cyle bin along with the grass clippings been contaminating the compost at centers or your own bin for that matter.They have these weed killers been banned in america  because they effect vegetables and make them inedible .The soil being effected for years and could account for the damage we have experienced,according to the times news paper.The weed killer is Clopyralid lingers in the soil for years long after it has been used.I do not use weed killers and glad I don't,it makes you think what results it would have on humans if the effected veg is eaten and where you are buying from compost wise.
