Any advice on hand-push lawnmowers?

Posted: 19/05/2012 at 16:34

We have a little push mower at our allotment. I love it. With all the bad weather we've had the grass had got very long so OH & I took turns in chopping it down with long handled sheers & then mowing. The path is now nice & short. It's about 112' x 6'  so I should think that's the size of a small lawn. We got it from Argos about £30. I'd love it for home too.

Bay Willow Herb? Lots of different types. They spring up all over our garden too. They can be spread by the wind. The flowers ate pink & the seeds head looks like cfluffy cottonwool.

help with 2 plants please- Clematis Jackmanii(?) and Rhodedendron(?)

Jack will be easier to train when he's been pruned next year & you can see the new shoots sprouting up.I have several clems growing through shrubs, they look lovely too. I have bought several from Morrisons for under £2. I'm going to plant a passion flower through lonicera baggesens gold. I think the blue will look lovely against the acidic green.

B&Q M.Purpose Compost Issues.

Posted: 17/05/2012 at 14:15

Kipper2 I was at a rose nursery recently & I asked how they get on with compost. They buy in a base mix & add to it depending on what they are planting up + osmocote. He buys it in at £7 a bag & will sell it on at £8. People don't want to pay that for it but as he said it's no skin off his nose if they don't. I really don't know what people are going to do about MPC but I have been really pleased with the Clover. OH opened a new one yesterday & said it was bootiful stuff.

Hedgehogs

If you put peanuts out for hogs they need to be chopped up. They can stick to the roof of their mouths. I was very excited today as there were 3 lots of HH poo on the front lawn. HH can climb. A couplke of years ago I coundn't understand why there wasn't any poo around but the food had gone.I went to the shops & came through the gate,the top of the gate iw wide & the poo was on that.
