What's this buried under our garden?

Posted: 25/02/2017 at 22:49

In the early days I hoped we might find some human bones, then the police would come and do the digging. 

I forgot to mention the bottles, hundreds of them, the previous owner had a bit of a problem

Loads of rubbish here, huge lumps of concrete for us to make steps and a sort of rockery. Old hand made bricks to build a summerhouse. Plus glass, plastic bag, asbestos, brick rubble, carpets.........

My neighbour says there's a Reliant Robin in there. He put it there, in one of the ex-ponds I suspect. If we ever find it OH will want to restore it to its former ?glory

the hazel, walnut and oak are Lb but the ash and acers are more likely wind blown and germinate where they land

well, they are plants. There's no chemical hat distinguishes between plants you want and plants you don't want.

If I didn't pull ash, field maple, sycamore and all the rest every year, I'd be living in a forest by now. 

Plant ID please

How can I thin a Privet hedge?

You can be vicious.

ours reached the phone wires years ago and wide in proportion to height. It's at a manageable 5 or 6 foot now. I think we should have taken it back further to thicken out the bottom foot.

They do better here Fairy, almost reached weed status  I have seedlings coming up in grass paths and in cracks in paving

But the more they seed the better.
