Why not try your local Freecycle group - I have given away loads of oddments, buttons etc for exactly your sort of purpose.  Type into the internet the word freecycle and the name of your area.  People give away everything for free but the recipient has to collect it themselves.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Oooo Fruitcake - you are so lucky to be able to keep chickens on your plot. I don't envy you the job of clearing the couch grass - evil stuff.

I've discovered muscles I'd forgotten I had as I've hacked, cut and sawn through an overgorwn shrub this morning - green wheelie bin full to the top.  Being rewarded by being taken to see Shaun the Sheep film this evening.

No gardening for me today as I slipped on black ice and fell on my back in full view of a load of villagers waiting at the bus stop.  I think my bottom took the full brunt but oddly my foot hurts tonight.  My hedge man came and lowered my mixed hedge a couple of feet so I will count that as gardening though.

Turfing up to sunken birch trees- raising soil by how much?

As long as you don't pile up the soil up the trunks they should be OK.  Three inches should be alright.

No chance of gardening today as it has been hurling with rain.  I've had to cancel the appointment I had with the man who cuts the height of my mixed hedge as well - hopefully tomorrow will be nice as I want to get the hedge cut before nesting time.

Few questions, any ideas?

With regards you sarcococca - I've had exactly the same - bought one in the summer and it is covered withflowers at the moment but I can't smell anything unless I get down on my hands and knees and even then the perfume isn't that strong.  After being told what a fabulous perfume they have I am disappointed.

Hope someone will be along to answer your questions Jesse.l
