wow that one big tree, and like you I would get rid, dig in pleanty of compost, organic matter into the soil, the tree has most probably taken all the life from any soil, you can always use pots to start of with, give the garden a year and then you will see where the sun comes in , look around other peoples gardens in the area and see what they are growing. Its all good fun and trial and error, keep a look out in the local garden centres for reduced plants, usually with a bit of tlc they come back to life .

Advice on slug free plants

sterelitza not sure if they like achillea , i dont think so because the leaves are a littl brittle, i have placed collars made from plastic bottle with copper tape around all my delphinums, lupins, poppys and they have kept the blighters away, also put flour and water in yogurt pots around the garden, they are drawn to the  yeast in the flower, anything is worth a go.

Talkback: Frogs and toads in the garden

Posted: 15/04/2013 at 15:45

i was digging a new bed out a month ago, when i thought it was a large stone with a pretty strippy pattern, i went to pick it up and nearly shoot fifteen feet in the air, with a large scream that followed, it was a toad, dug down to keep warm, i covered him back with the soil and placed some grass and straw over him so, i knew where he was. , continued to dig away from the spot, named him timmy the toad, after a week or more, he dissapeared, but i have put a small pond in now, so i hope he returns for his delux abode.
