I hope you've not bought a palram greenhouse, if you have send it back and spend a bit more money on something better, mine is now in bits in the garage after the wind through the night  

Vegetables/edible plants to grow in flower beds/borders

Blueberry bushes! Just dug a trench for mine in the middle of a border with some ericaceous compost in and mulch with the same every year, they look great and taste great!

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

Posted: 08/01/2017 at 19:55

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
