Soil over pond liner in a wildife pond

Posted: 05/03/2016 at 10:18

Is there really any need to clean the liner? Isn't a dirty liner part of the necessary balance of having a wildlife pond?

GW magazine subscription

I was of the same opinion a few years ago, after a while everything gets repeated and so I cancelled. But at £2 per issue I thought id subscribe again just for one year.

Well I ended up taking the offer of subscribing to GW magazine for £25. Once the annual direct debit has been set up I shall contact Immediate Media and cancel any future direct debits.

Thats a lovely sized garden Carpenter72, were you not tempted to make the pond even bigger? Looks like you have the space for it.

Lyn, after making credit card payment is there a way of opting out of any auto renewal subscription?

If thats true then £25 for the first 5 issues makes them £5 each, which isn't much of an 'offer'.

Its rather confusing as there are multiple links to click, each with a different price. But when clicking on the 'Subscription' link at the very top right of this web page the offer states 12 issues for £25, and eventually leads to another page which states the same.

So would £25 for 12 issues be a particularly good deal , or are they often offering this kind of price?

I see GW are giving a 52% discount by offering a 12 month subscription for £25, which is tempting. But is this a genuine offer or are they offering this kind of deal all the time?

Compacted clay soil

Posted: 24/02/2016 at 10:45

Im guessing the previous house owner knew of the clay problem and covered it with chipping as an easy way of dealing with the problem. A mattock might help with digging up the clay. Ive just bought one from BnQ to dig over in my clay garden after reading of Monty Dons recommendation.

If you could dig a trench as deep and as long as possible in your boarder as close to the plant as possible to expose any creeping roots, this could help. Or maybe even drop a piece of tough plastic or metal in there, and back fill then this could help stop them growing through.

Some bamboos send out runners underground which pop up in other gardens. Other bamboos send shoots up at the base, so they don't spread. Your neighbour has chosen the wrong type, maybe they could be peruaded to replace it?

I doubt it could ever be proved. It's not as though BEL has climbed over the fence and poisoned the neighbours plant. All BEL would be doing is poisoning the roots that grow on his/her property. It would at most become a civil matter of a boundary dispute, not a police matter. If BEL does what I suggested above then BEL could show he/she has taken all reasonable steps to resolve the problem first.

But as I posted above, speak to the neighbour first.
