Soil Test Kit, advice please

Posted: 09/10/2013 at 16:41

No fizzing waterbutts. Conclusion - soil test kit faulty.

Not going to bother with the stick type either, not sure what benefit is to be gained really unless I want to grow specific plants to perfection. I'll keep with trial and error.

Thanks for your advice everyone.

Just dropped step son at school, other side of city to us. On the way the sky changed over every hill. Night grey, brighter grey, yellow tinges, grey and blue, bit more blue, blue with pink clouds (lovely) and then so sunny a search for sunglasses needed! Yep that's all 7 of our hills accounted for. Lovely morning. Stopped of at GC then off for eye test.

Good Evening FORKERS

Must try that gardeningfanatic , soap in fingernails before starting. will do.
Also use play dough after to clean up stubborn stains on nails as well. Please wash first of course.

Radio Prog today talking about foxes. Feed if you wish but well away from house, and not regularly so not reliant. Also not near house so don't go near other houses esp where not welcome. Agree cats gonna look after itself but if its out on even territory may need a co tingency plan, rather than chasing fox away, tell sis to have a fox safety word with cat!

Chicky, ah Bruno mars, he MADE my sons song - when I see your face- its all about him and him alone, brings a tear to think about it. (my sons face is a very special part of him).

That's what I thought. Might try one of those probes. But do I really need to know? Managed so far.

That idea didn't go well then did it MrsG?

Hydrangea paniculata grandiflolium (easy for you to say), was just sprwled out like a ground cover or weeping plant. Looked it up, saw one trained as a standard - oh that looks good though I. Straight back out to begin removing lower branches. How exciting. Snip. Swear word. Off with the main stem I wanted to train And the ONLy flower. Oooops.
