Thanks for the tips guys, Any idea how long it would take to rot down to useable topsoil? I was thinking it would probably take 9-12 months?

Whats the best thing to do with some turf i'm going to be digging up? 

My best idea was to put it all in a 1 tonne rubble bag, grass side down, cover it and leave it to rot down into topsoil. Would this work? If not what better alternatives are there, i don't really want to/want to have to take it to the tip. 

Thanks, Matt

Best B&Q in West yorkshire

Wondering if anyone in the West Yorkshire area had thought about which B&Q in the area was the best for garden products? I ask because my wife and i had some vouchers given to us for Christmas and we are wanting some furniture or a fire pit/bbq (and some plants but don't tell her that until we're there.)

Thank you, Matt

Veg growing inside

Posted: 18/03/2013 at 13:51
What are the best vegetables to grow inside. Have had success with various chilli varieties in the past as well as herbs and will be growing them again this year, but I was wondering what else you all think Is worth a try. We have large south facing floor to ceiling windows and I am prepared to put some hours in to growing things. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
