I have been inundated with chick weed brought in in bags of bought compost, I know this as being right as I used to tend my Aunties window box with the same make soil and the window box in no time was smothered in chick weed.

I love the idea of doing the shed clean up, but walking down my garden would be a no no, now the snow is melting my heavy clay is a quagmire, and would be completely ruined, not that I would be able to stay on my feet as I garden on a steep hill and I would be slip sliding away.

Talkback: Find out your soil type

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:28
I garden on clay good clay at the top then a layer of dead clay wich nothing could survive in then below that chalk, I do add different things to the soil to try to make it more pliable but it remains very heavy to dig, waterlogged in winter and cracked up in the summer, I live on a very steep hill side ways on to the garden and it seems that all the nutrients that I add leach off into my neighbors garden, shame they only grow weeds and rubbish.but I do keep struggling on to try and maintain it
