Dont despair of a conifer hedge, this is mine, I know several regulars have seen these piccy before, but just to show what can be done in a very short time. the only things I bought for this was a couple of tubs of chicken pellets, BOGOF. I bought 12 bare root shrubs, 20.00 from Amazon and I bought the asters and some Penstemon bare roots in the winter, of which I have now taken loads of cutting for this year. If you have the time to spend it will reward you.

starting to dig out Oct 13

 Planting up in May

 10th July growing on!

2nd Sept

 23rd Sept

 So in exactly one year from start to finish and hardly cost anything but time.

That wooden unit was from Argos, it had a cotton cover and is supposed to be a bedroom storage unit, ideal there and quite cheap.

The other side is just those metal and plastic shelves from Amazon, pack of 2 around 30.00.

I did think thats what is was, always got them in the pots at the end of the year, but can be controlled, by provado.

Have I plants in the kitchen,?  just a few, this conservatory door stays open all the time for warmth, however did it get on the table, they only walk! I have never seen an adult, they are all females so its now a late weevil!

Verdun, thank you. When all this is over, I think  we deserve to have a day out?

I have just has a district nurse come, with a student, after seeing how bad the situation is, she has referred it to Fast Track and to the Marie Currie fund.

She assured me someone will come in tomorrow, it is becoming a nurses job as mum is getting sore.

Billie, you have a great understanding for this, I also wrote pages and pages from a situation I was in years ago, but a couple of years ago, I put them all on the fire, it does really help to do that, and then throw the problem away, burning is the best.
