Thanks Bob, I am planning to plant a few shrubs for now to get them established, so I will give it a go!

Hi Bob Harper, perhaps you can help me. I am currently digging a new flower bed and the soil is very hard compacted clay . I have access to a horse manure heap but I have used most of the really rotted black stuff and am left with the straw/manure mix.

Do you think putting that on would help break up the consistancy of the soil or is it too fresh (its about 3 months old) I could pick up dung from the field as an option. ?

my most treasured garden tool are my straight secateurs given to me by my father this year,they are so sharp and neat.

worst tool = I  wasted £1 at Poundland on one of the crappiest pair of secateurs known to man!!!!(they didnt cut and then had the cheek to fall apart!) should have known better for that price

Help, I planted 6 Hymenocallis bulbs in pots. Only one flowered although they have all grown. The leaves are being eaten by something and I cant see anything on them, dispite using a bug spray. Any suggestions folks?
