Advice On Building A Gardening Robot

Posted: 10/11/2012 at 18:23

Digging  seed planting, plant/seedling planting possibly. Watering can already be done automatically with seeper hoses and taps with timers.

Go to Amazon and type in Garden Watering Systems - you may be surprised how much is already on market.

No its not down to funding so much as die hards who don't want to spoil the 'look' of the victorian town, I guess they don't have foxes, older people etc who struggle with all this. Feel very strongly about it

Enough, think I'll have aChristmas avatar any way

Yep we PAY for brown bin empitied every 2 weeks. Came from a place where just bins - hate these plastic bags, foxes and cats rip them, wind blows them about. There was a move to introduce re-cycling bins, chairman of council walked out - big thing. No re-cycling bin though.

Glass has to be taken to banks.

Then complaints about traffic queus at tip - mostly peope emptying garden rubbish as they haven't the brown bins

We don't have bins to be emptied here, Still in the land of plastic bags: pink for recycling,(very limited) black for eveerything else.- only one bag a week! WE pay to have a brown wheelie bin for garden rubbish, it all really bugs us.

So pleased some one has managed to cheer Geoff up

Foots improving thanks - just have to remember not to put weight on it apart from walkng, realised when planting a pot with rhubarb in that digging means too much pressure on foot

Hope Jess gets well soon.

Men have just been out and repaired green where bonfire was. Repalced  turves and seeded around the edge. I provided some DAffs to plant under turves. One complained that he would have no where to play football, with daffs  there pointed out that there was plenty more green, then went in, could have said more!

hardwood cuttings

I have found this thread really useful. I have a lovely scented shrub - n o idea what it is - and have tried softwood cuttings. Your advice + RHS makes me think I will give it another go with hardwood cuttings, in a pot.

Which has given you such grief Geoff?

Inkie cat always growls at the rain when we open the door for her. Gets positvely ferocious if its snow, but then.....

Wonder how Jess is!

You could always try Amazon

Just come in from doing tidy up, Lost my favourite secateurs somewhere in garden so having to use some others not the same though. Ones I lost have orange handle but it became very muddy. Maybe it will turn up as tidy up continues.

Sorry Kate but it has been a lovely bright, mild day here.
