Thank you Buttercupdays

great to have a list i can work with,

2 thirds of the iris have already been chopped and are about to be dug out, just keeping them around the pond and water butts.

have a good day

damp allotment

hi 

can anyone help 

i have taken over my mums allotment the last third of this allotment has a riverbed running below the surface so it is really boggy in some places water comes to the surface after heavy rain .

i would like this to be a wildflower meadow attracting more wild life 

we already have a wild pond with frogs and under the poly house we have slow worms.

this  wild flower meadow  style area needs to look after itself without taking over but creating enough cover so the creatures are safe

we already have some grasses and some huge iris type flowers.

on the site one man keeps bees so we would like to attract them, we have 3 apple trees but we would like more bees,

i know I'm being greedy but i would like to share the allotment with the wild life and attract as much as possible

thanks

Tomato varieties for outdoors

hi fellow gardeners guess i will be needing your help this year.

i used to be able to bounce all my garden question off my mum but we sadly lost her in October.

i have taken over her allotment we are digging it all over and letting it rest this year i hope to green manure it asap.

now my tomato question is

i have completely cleared a long polycarbonate shed and planted 60 tomato plants already doing really well the Roma is coming into flower i know when to feed but as i don't get any flying insects in the poly shed do i have to tickle them my self with my trusty paint brush or will they sort themselves out.

my other tomato in the poly shed is gardeners delight

its a bit of a panic planting as i felt the need to grow something this year.

cheers all

 

twisted-hazel---where-should-it-go

Posted: 30/08/2013 at 07:31

my twisted hazel is so twisted it looks like corkscrews.

admired by many but more are confused and think it needs water .

i always take out the straight growth it works for me.

the ground around the base approx 3 ft away from the base is regularly dug over i have no problem with the roots.

happy twisting
