Hedge or border

Posted: 12/12/2012 at 13:27

I have done a rosemary hedge for my son s small corner garden and its worked well,I took cuttings from his big rosemary bush and just stuck them in the ground,they took and once they statred to take off I clipped them into shape and we cut them back when they need it.As well as a lovely scent when you brush by it (its a handy for all those things you can do with it) its quick to grow,easy to maintain,looks lovely when in flower and free.

Talkback: Dealing with a waterlogged garden

Posted: 10/12/2012 at 15:03

I have the problem of a water logged lawn as I am on a hill and the lawn is on the flat bit .there is also a under ground spring that runs through the garden so all in all its like a swamp .We planted a stick off a willow tree one year and it grew and it grew ,it kept the lawn dry but it got bigger and bigger no matter how we cut it back and for smallish garden it was a disaster,it kept the lawn dry but it had to come down.I still have the trunk as a seat.

When I was out riding recently there was whole flock ,I think,goldfinches ,chasing each other from tree to tree,the trees now felled they where pine.I have never seen so many chattering their song as they went.may be they like the pine cones.

slugs in the kitchen

good idea ,might try that.I was wondering if they were coming from under the boards in the cupboards( the floor is tiled) as the outer wall gets alot of damp and its 12ft under the boards which might be where there coming from,I don't know,its a battle.
