supermarket first. More compost second. A look round GC next. Take yesterdays acquired child back (nepew) after lunch I think. Use said compost finally.
Have a good day all.

Daddy long legs - a serious problem?

Here here, love the advice or views and experiences (keep that coming), not the judgement.

Daddy long legs - a serious problem?

Posted: 29/09/2013 at 09:39
Well put holistic comments Verdun. Very realistic.
There is a lot of pressure sometimes on the forum to do as others do or wish us to do.
It is right to put forward environmental issues but also keep it in perspective. And as you say, to enjoy our garden as we see fit.
I use slug pellets (on occasion)but no insecticides, that's justhow I garden. If my gardening changes and I feel a need to control pests more then I have to say I will be less likely to choose pesticides simply from views and education on the forum. If I had a particular problem I would ask on here and make my own decision, but appreciate all views.

Morning all. Its quite nice here KEF, I'll send it your way, won't be long.
Sounds like an idylic weekend dove.
Garedengirl thanks for long handle bulb planter info, I saw an article in The English Garden mag which got me started on them.
Have a good day everyone, not sure what my plans are but certainly some littering, need to water as well - and its nearly Oct! Can't get rid of this summer can we? Certainly regretting impatience of planting tulip bulbs early, against advice. Spring will be here soon....

Good Evening FORKERS

Hey Gg, dunno about your lawn sorry. Did you see my post about zingy lime? Also have you any experience using bulb planters?
Watched beechgrove, fast forwarded through veg stuff as usual, very little about the 'real' garden .
Might manage to watch GW in real time if rest of family stay in hot tub for long enough...I'll do a drinks run to keep then busy...

Hello! Were back on! Have tried to look back at the posts but seems a bit heavy ( no bun intended) on doughnuts.
Have had to fend for myself these last few days, and boy I've had questions...
I've compiled a birthday list for oh. Had to research long handle bulb planters on amazon reviews. Asked for Joseph Bentley. Went to 3x GC and 2x diy to try, no one stocks them so my conclusion must be they aren't any good? Should I try to back track on b'day list?
Ooo, paragraphs working differently, no spaces, used to get two and delete one
nut, I'll hold the ladder for you but that's all im afraid
