Which tool to break soil the best

Posted: 19/10/2013 at 12:01

Hi Terrier, we have just done the same sort of thing, ie scraped off  lawn to  make a new larger bed , its very heavy compact clay. broke my back digging with a fork and smashing the large lumps with a spade. Piled lots of well rotted horse dung and leaf mulch on top to let it do its thing. Its is now quite a good consistancy. the worms do a lot of the work! Good luck

Whar makes me happy in the autumn?

A walk round Batsford Arboretum on a sunny day with the dogs, followed by a pub lunch, sitting next to a big log fire in a pretty Cotswold village. That makes Autumn ok by me!

I used to spend all my money and spare time riding  and caring for my horse. (garden got a bit neglected in those days) Sadly hes gone to the great paddock in the sky and only ride a friends horse twice a week (no overheads now!)

Garden is now my baby and has never looked better.
