Waterbut downpipes

Thank you Flowering rose.......I often do that. My neighbours had their garden "re-designed" and threw out 4 skip loads of beautiful plants(bought at great cost) and lots of pots etc. as they did not fit in their new design!

I got permission and acquired some good gear for my garden.What a waste....small wonder that our planet is in trouble.

Bob, you are right, I went on the site........almost £20.00p for a 1" connection!! Like you I shall do a "heath robinson" and stick it on with some aquatic glue

By the way, I did something similar to you, using a a plastic "top" that are sold to protect plant canes as that bit is also not sold seperately but a "kit" for 20 pounds!! Boy, talk about rip off, the mind boggles.

Reading comments on water butts prompted me to ask about down pipe connectors for a HALLS aluminium GH.The guttering is1" wide and I am unable to find a connection that fits. Any ideas please. Thank you.

I believe in what you have said Sam. Life, quietly teaches us alot, if we take note of what it throws at us!!

I feel sad for your loss too Maud and hope this year is a happier one

I have "dalek" bins and they sit on slabs like hypercharleyfarley.The advice given above is very good as it has worked for me too. One of my neighbours bought the "tumbler" at great expense but it did not work for the reasons given above. And yes, do try the FOC method with the council.....good luck.

Mine is still asleep too, I blame it ALL on the weather last year....I'm not a happy bunny at the moment as it is by the window and reminds me that warmer days are a coming....nothing this year.

The sun came out yesterday and the weather put a cork in the bucket in the sky, so I was able to viev the "estate". Lots of plants shooting up, I hope we do not get a sharp frost which might hurt them. Never mind, fingers crossed and back to hot drink and seed catalogues Enjoy everyone!

Drowning bamboo, how much can they take?

Posted: 23/12/2012 at 08:38

Bamboos are tough and survive in the boggy jungles in the tropics where they grow wild, so yours should be OK; especially if they are established. It's heavy and persistent frost that kills them. Good luck

Urgent Advice Please - Will bleach kill turf?

Posted: 23/12/2012 at 08:28

Yes, bleach and caustic soda kills plants, turf and worms and seeps into the soil. I know from what it did to my neighbours soil. Please try disinfectant instead.We are pouring too much strong chemicals into our rivers already.
