Weeds for compost? ????

Posted: 13/03/2016 at 18:12

I chuck everything on and hope for the best. The garden is full of weeds anyway.

Done it. It was hard to get out. The rose roots had penetrated the bedrock (brick rubble) but my fork/spade couldn't so lost a certain amount of root. Cut it back good and hard to compensate for root loss. Buried the onion (sic) and it looks much happier. I hope for a successful outcome

A strimmer is good for weeds between stones

Can you help to identify this plant

That's the one, make sure you get it out with the corm or it will be back next year.

I don't watch GW but can imagine.

The union ((I read onion initially) is where it was when I bought it in the pot several years ago. I like your resaoning on depth of union and will replant deeper if necessary.

Thanks Hosta

Sun coming out now.

I'd forgotten the upside down rose. I wonder how it's getting on 

The rose has been here for several years Hosta and the union (I read onion initially), is at  the depth it was in the pot. Do you think I should put it in deeper?  Can it go too deep?


Identify please

They germinate very easily.

I've got seeds to sow tomorrow and a new bit of grass to level and sow. I thought if I nipped out and did the rose now I'd be ahead of the game
