Gate Posts

Hi Everyone,

I'm in the process of building new wooden drive gates and have two brick posts all ready built either side of the drive. I intend to attach two wooden posts to the bricks to fix the gates too.

My question is would you drill then screw the posts into the mortar of the brick posts or the bricks themselves?

The bricks are the modern type with 3 holes in the centre of the brick, the screws are long and would pass through 1 hole, my thinking is the brick might crack as only the first inch of the screw would be in the brick and the rest in the empty hole.


Thanks in advance

Woops! my runners were hanging over the side of the pot for a few weeks and I just cut them off

I had a couple of strawberry plants that had grown many off shoots with what looked like roots and new plants a even gaps.

I cut these shoots off  and planted them but they have all wilted like they are dying even though I have kept the water moist.

Have I cut the right part off the mother plant?

I have quite a few strawberry plants and they are covered in greenfly, will they harm them? If yes what can I use to remove them but leave the strawberries good to eat?

Look what I did to my rhodos

Thanks for the advice people

One thing I forgot to mention is the rose now has lots of buds ready to pop, should I still cut it back or wait for flowering to finish?

Hi Everyone,

I had a lovely round rose tree but due to working away a lot in the last year it has been neglected and gone all leggy. Can I ask how I can return it to a nice ball, should I just go wild and snip away until I'm happy with the shape?

I know nothing about cutting roses back



PS The picture on my computer is the right way around but when I upload it this site rotates it



Building a veg planter

Posted: 02/04/2014 at 23:10

I'm building a veg planter in my garden and I was wondering whether you could answer two questions.

1) The planter will be built onto of some flagging which when the weather is wet will flood to about 2-3 inches. Should I gravel the base of the planter a similar height before adding soil.

2) Should I fill it with compost or top soil, the planter will be quite large and may require a lot of compost bags to fill.

I think it is a Bee as it was very fat all over and I would say a wasp is longer and thinner. The problem with where they are at the moment is the box is 2 inches from my head when I walk in the shed. The reason I knew it was there was because I could hear this strange hissing noise when I was opening and shutting the door, after two days it was freaking me out a little so I narrowed it to the bird box and decided to look in the hole. To say the least having a very large Bee vibrating it's wings right in my face made me jump haha.
