Compost Bins & Lovely Rats

Posted: 01/11/2013 at 22:08

The  toilet seat is always down Farmergeddun, I've seen experiments of all sorts thrown around if you leave the seat up when you flush and I didn't even think about the rats!!

Hi Matty, I get where you coming from I think it's going to be a bit colder where I'm going to and don't know yet what aspect the land is. Feel better now I've got a plan and I'm hopeful there's going to be some more land available for me to try out new things

Thank you all so much, I really appreciate itIt's all happened very quickly and will be in my new home next weekend There have been a few tears already!

I've been adding to my spring bulbs lately and I can remember where I planted most of them, so will definately dig them up and put in pots for the Spring. My newly planted Buddelia is also coming with me as well as a piece of  false sunflower. Thinking that I might take a small selection of plants that flower at different times of the year and ones that give off seeds/spreaders/easy to take cuttings.

I don't expect to see any plants popping up at my new place, it's a small plot and just looks like lawn but yes I think there's going to be a lot more wildlife. Landlords already said there's bats resting in the eves I'm hoping to hear some owls too

Thanks again, it's going to be a good move for me and yes your right a blank canvas to start again with

I think it's going to be a few degrees colder. Where I am now, I think I managed to establish the gardens own micro climate, by putting up fences etc. I'm only moving a few miles along but it's a fair bit higher

Your right WW, my new garden is a lot smaller and I have no idea about the aspect, it's a lot higher than where I am, no problem with flooding...........the water will run straight downWill take some favourites and those that are small but spreading.

Thank you I wasn't expecting to feel this way about plants!

In my new home I will have a small garden but plenty of opportunities for having some extra land. I hope to have a proper space to grow veggies and maybe some chickens. Will pick out some to take with me and start again

Hello everyone, an unexpected opportunity has come up and I'm moving, which is great the down side is that I'm leaving my garden and all the lovely plants that I've grown and planted

I'm moving to a lovely place up country lanes which is peaceful and beautiful. I don't care about the property I'm leaving but so sad to be leaving the garden. It did so well this year, I had loads of insects and butterflies

Will try and take some of my plants with me, but don't have the space or the time to move them all. I'm in such a dilemma as to what to take and what to leave behind. I know in my heart that I can grow them again, but it feels sad to leave them behind and the chances are that they won't be appreciated by the new tenants or the landlord.

I've been here for nearly 3 years and didn't think I would feel this way, when I started out
