Fuschia bush

When you see new shoots on it, cut right back to about 4 inches from the ground. Thats usually beginning of March.

Compost bin....again

Posted: 14/02/2015 at 12:13

Like this?

its very nice, wood is warmer than plastic, so compost will start to work quicker, I would suggest having 2 though, you need to fill one, then leave it and start another, then when the first one has finished, you can bag it up and swap over to start again.

You can buy little green slug traps, some put beer in them, I have put just a few pellets, you sink them in the ground they have little holes in the sides for the slugs to get in and lids on so nothing else can.

How to get rid of Gorse

Posted: 10/02/2015 at 10:37

Strong weedkiller should work on the gorse, but bracken, I couldnt get rid of. We just had to hack it out. Its a real pest in our lanes now, it kills everything, there is hardly anything else growing there.

As its carcinogenic, I thought the council may have got rid, but they havent so far.
