We have got the tree man booked to take out a mature but dying chestnut. Sad to see it go but on the upside, I get more light and looking forward to planning a new veg area in the pottager style!

Ahh .... Claringdon, what memories. Sadly my grandads both died when I was young but my Dad made up for it with his shed. What springs to mind among all the wierd and wonderful dusty, cobwebby stuff he surrounded himself with, is a couple of little stream driven engine thingamybobs that ran on Methalated spririts.  I remember painting the outside to look like a black and white beamed cottage and the veggie patch outside. He's moved house about 3 times since then and still has a muddley, dusty shed and a veg patch, minus the engines, must find out what happended to them! (cats and spiders are pre requisits!)

Thanks for that Bob, I hoped that might be the case. I will get some Armillatox for the nearby trees just in case. Have a good weekend

Got all this to look forward to with our pink chestnut tree. Our plan is that once its felled and the tree surgeon has ground out the stump, and we,ve got out as much of the root system as possible, we will rotivate the area and use it for veg growing. Does that sound ok or are we asking for trouble. Will look up the Armillatox product for the surrounding shrubs/trees.
