Getting paving slabs cut to measure

Posted: 15/03/2017 at 06:54

If there are not too many slabs, have a look for a local stone mason. Or if you are very cheeky do what I did once (when I only needed a couple done) I asked the guys that do headstones and the like for funerals and they did it for me!

Do I need to prune all roses including patio and small varieties? and should I feed after pruning?

Bad knees

Posted: 18/02/2017 at 09:56

Thank you so much for raising this issue. I, like so many of you, have O.A in one knee and have recently found it increasingly difficult getting up and down. I have always gardened on my knees and this is going to be my first year when I don't think I will be physically able to 'get stuck in' and I must say it is sad for me. I have never quite mastered hoeing  ( I guess I am not doing properly)


This is going to be a new challenge as I am having to make changes in other areas such as replacing heavy pots with plastic ones etc.and generally trying to make a low maintenance garden. These are all signs for me of getting older unfortunately and having to learn to adapt which as I am sure you will agree is not easy when you have always been independent and not good at asking for help. Well onwards and upwards as they say.

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.
