I have a few bags of stable manure left over from last winter, will it still be ok to use? if so, can I use it as a mulch? Many thanks.

Thanks Redwing, If anyone has one of these I would love to see pics.


I was wondering, how effective (if at all) bird repellant grass seed was, anyone used it?

Hi, I would be interested to know what tried and tested methods people use to keep birds off of their newly sown grass seed.

This Year was my first time at growing Cosmos from seed. I must say I am very impressed and look forward to having more next year. Unfortunately, unlike Verdun I didn't pinch them out and although they are huge ( up to 120cm) and beautiful, they have started to droop in the recent wet weather.   Oh well, another useful lesson learned


Could anyone clarify, do they come back next year? or do I just remove them when they are over?


Many thanks
