Hi all. Full steam ahead at our site. Water is on and its busy most days and evenings. Some of my radishes and turnips I sowed direct are already up now, just waiting for stuff grown under cover to grow on a bit. Planted some peas that I had growing in drain pipe, however its being eaten by something so have covered with netting. Slug pellets are a must Aster2 !!(or stale beer)
Have started a mammoth task of clearing the wasteland to the side of the main path through the site, purely voluntary, but it looks such a mess and my neighbour keeps throwing his junk over it. I thought if it was planted up, like some other people have done, it could look nice .
GWRS, what type of rose arch are you using, we have the metal ones and they are not really strong enough for climbing roses, so I think we will have to build some wooden ones around it for support.
