I have to redo about 7 fence panels and posts in my garden, i didn't put enough concrete around the posts so it's my own fault.

Sports personality

I thought the worst part of sports personality was throwing in Nelson Mandela and the award for the Hillsborough campaigner, neither should of been on a sports award programme, seems to me the BBC get more political by the week. Go Sophie by the way.

Which tool to break soil the best

Posted: 18/10/2013 at 19:21

There used to be a product (probably banned now) that reversed the clay particles, clay if i remember corectly looks like millions of opened umbrellas. What this product did was turn about half of those opened umbrellas upside down so that stopped sticking together. 

Is our hedge destroyed?

I`d be on her front doorstep by now asking her why she cut your hedge down, i can`t imagine she didn`t notice you`d trimmed the hedge the week before but clearly decided it was too high for her. With the hedge the height before would it of blocked out light to one of her rooms? or it may just be the case that she is letting you know she is in charge and if you don`t stand up for yourself you`ll be in a whole heap of trouble. Might be worth contacting the previous owner of your house and asking them about the hedge and the neighbour.

Pruning dahlias and gladioli

Posted: 13/10/2013 at 11:19

If you leave Dahlias out over winter there is a chance they will survive depending on soil and their site situation. I accidentally left one out close to a hedge (dry) and east facing and that was last winter which lasted nearly 6 months. The choice is yours, but it is a gamble.

I`d agree on the poor results this year, i actually pulled mine out last week, keep a close eye on them this year though as i noticed the wasps were destroying the main stem for food or nesting material

I catch them and then shoot them, greys are vermin, just like mink and signal crayfish.

Go for seed that is mainly poa annua (annual meadow grass) as it`s the most sturdy.

Take some photos of them djbadboy sunbathing and post them on facebook, that`ll probably stop them.

I`m on sand and have no problems with my Astilbes, water well during this mini heatwave though.
