What did you do in your garden today?

Posted: 22/05/2013 at 16:35

I started re-edging my lawn. Probably one of the most impactive jobs for such little effort!

Went around the garden placing plant labels to mark each plants location. In Autumn I plan to lift them all when I redesign the garden. I prefer to use these black T lables with a white marker..

B&Q M.Purpose Compost Issues.

Posted: 12/05/2013 at 14:43

Im very pleased with the three 125L bags of B&Q Verve MPC Ive used. I always sive it and whilst there are a few twigs etc overall its been very good.

Ive also purchased a few 60L bags of J Arthur Bowers compost which is on offer @ £3.60 per bag. I use this a couple of years ago and was pleased with it. The following year I went with sone well branded compost and it was awful, full of white mould and stones etc.

Im sticking with J Arthour Bowers and B&Q Verve from now on.

Visiting Malvern Spring Show

I find the GW show at the NEC a huge dissapointment and refuse to go again, I wouldnt mind visiting Malvern but not if its the same as the GW show.

Is it usually better than the GW show at the NEC? 

bamboo

You need to establish which variety of bamboo you have. I have 4 bamboo plants and they are all clump forming varieties that don't spread. If yours is the type that spreads then a plastic pot won't restrain it I'm afraid, it will eventually break through. You could surround the pot with concrete pavers though, dug into the ground.

I made mine out of pallets. One large one for the back wall, three standard pallets for the ends and centre division. The front is made of removable planks and I made a hinge lid...
