Welly boots

Posted: 05/12/2013 at 18:10

Believe it or not I have just been bought a pair of Hunters Wellies for my birthday they were a little bit tight then I held them upright in a bowl of hot water only from the tap mind and now they slip on easily, if they do tighten up cos you have been out in bad weather just warm them up again in the water, it does work.Had no trouble getting them off either, it wont harm them so long as you do NOT pour boiling water over them.

I used to work at an engineering firm and one of the jobs was to put rubber handles on the ends of mop and broom poles, now these were always smaller than the actual poles so they were emersed in hot water for a fer minutes to soften them, they became very supple and just slipped on, so i thought if wellies are too narrow try this without getting the inside wet and put them on asap and see if that works.

Worm compost

This may sound crazy but i use my garden recycle bin, I save all my soft garden and kitchen waste from Sept onwards,I buy my worms online, keep topping it up with kitchen waste during winter, then come June I usually have a bin full of compost. Tip it all out and spread it around garden, it has never failed for me/ But if it does fail by the time you need to use the bin again in spring, just put it out for bin men to empty, all you can loose is a couple of pounds sterling that you have paid for the worms. Good Luck.P.S If it isnt working quick enough for you just add more worms.Make your refuse bin work for you during the winter.

try to grow something that is evergreen, you don,t, need to be raking piles of leaves off the lawn every autumn, the fallen leaves if left can kill the grass off as well as i have found to my cost, Good luck.

I would say that it is definately a Robinia.

I also get cofused I am afraid its trial and error, but I did ask my plant supplier when to plant out and her answer was to keep them protected until the end of May, so that is what I am doing, Good Luck.
