What Wood ?

 maybe you could as a local firm to donate the wood, seeing as though it's for a good cause. See original post

That was my immediate thought too.  Any local companies who make fence panels or sheds may have off cuts they're willing to donate.

Nuts isn't it?!  I hope they never have a rush of 'customers'.  They'd be stacked round the sides of the place.

A new entry for the "You couldn't make it up" category.

I've just had a call from the people organising my cousin's funeral.  It's taking place next Tuesday, which is a bit quick for many people as we're scattered all over the country.  The "You couldn't make it up" bit is the reason for it having to be that date.

The local council only allocated a set number of days for grave diggers to attend cemetaries, and if it doesn't happen next week it could quote "Be some time before they are available again"!!!!!!

You seem to have got it back to a decent shape so I'm sure it will recover over time.  They are quite fast growers.

Isn't it always the way? You have 20 things you don't care about and one which you do.  The ankle biters seem to be able to home in on the 'one' with pinpoint accuracy.

Watering - Chlorine and Soil Microbes....

As Hostafan1 intimated, we've been watering gardens straight from the tap via hoses for decades without any problem.  You really are looking for a problem where one doesn't exist.

What might work is to dig a hole a couple of feet deep.  Plant said child with one branch in each hand with arms outstretched.  If this is done in front of the damaged plant it might disguise the damage.

Ideas to weigh down weed blackout

If you're using heavy duty membrane then pegging it down should do the job.  That won't work with the lighter weight 'fabric' as it will tear.
