Growing basil

Not only can you split them, you can take cuttings and pop them in a glass of water until they root.  Then just pot them on into individual pots.  This way you can self perpetuate one plant ad infenitum (in theory)!

Oh, I don't know - one can grow to love it!

I have been making my own comfrey feed for a couple of years now, but I have two questions - 

1)  How long will it keep?  I usually put the undiluted mix into old milk bottles, but have some left over from last year and am not certain whether this old mix is any good or not.

2)  Having just watched Monty's video on the subject, he used his spare leaves as a mulch on his greenhouse toms, I wonder if using the liquid feed on top of this would be too much?

Buying online

I find I now go to garden centres and cringe when I see the prices - buying online beats the socks off GCs on all counts!

Can I plant a lawn on heavy clay

Posted: 26/02/2013 at 23:38

My garden is terribly steep and we have literally moved tons and tons of heavy clay soil from the bottom to level off the higher part and because it is such a large area the only practical solution is to lay it to grass.  I realise I will have to add lots of sand and compost etc to the top layer before planting grass seed, but does anyone have any suggestions to make the job easier?  Is there a type of grass seed more suited to heavy soil?
