Best Compost 2013

Posted: 19/06/2013 at 01:17

I recently picked up some bags of JAB which I have been impressed with in previous years. However when opening the bags it contains the worst compost I've ever seen. And it smells awful. I'm not even sure it's worthy of spreading on my borders.

Sorry it wasnt as good as expected. I really dont think I'll be going again to a GW Live show, they do seem to be a bit of a let down lately dont they.

The one in 2009 was quite good and I ended up coming home with a new greenhouse! But last years was poor, even the GF Show was bad. Seems they are really going down hill.

What did you do in your garden today?

Potted on 30+ sunflowers, most of them kindly given to me as seeds from Lilylouise.

I was on my hands & knees crawling through the borders pulling them out. Then of course you find a stray bramble, and a nettle....

Thats a lovely garden, and a great size too.

I might carefully spray them with weedkiller and leave that to take effect in the roots, then dig them up.

Yeah we seem to have had loads pop up too :-/ darn things... I left them as the leaves looked a little geraniumlike to me now I know it was a giant error (( 

To be honest, I thought they were geraniums as well when they first started showing. 

whats this plant?

Strange how some of the nicest looking plants are regarded as weeds.Imagine if dandelions were difficult to grow, we would be spending a fortune on them.

 

Does look like willow herb.
