Does anyone else have a garden that's a garden all year or is it just me?

it came from Aldi a long time ago Obelixx. There are probably more modern versions now. It's OK though

Not exactly what I'd want to be looking at for the winter but if your chosen plants need that...

Maybe I should go for a cone. we have Pinus sylvestris. I was surprised the seaweed went mouldy, I didn't expect that, crumble seemed more likely.

My fault H-C, I should have renewed my seaweed earlier.

Not short of stones, maybe give that one a try

I had a bit of seaweed but it went mouldy

Ornamental Equisetum - a problem?

Posted: 04/11/2016 at 18:30

there are several equisetum species. I wouldn't trust any of them. I've seen one in boggy part of a garden near a pond, springing up everywhere. Another in a botanical garden, quite extensive. Neither of these were the dreaded mares/horsetail, subject of many forum discussions.

purple wheelbarrow - any good?

I have a green one which I think is poly something or other. It didn't come from Wyevale.  It has rust on the metal bits. I'm not optimistic about the long term life of the green bit either. It may do for occasional light work if stored under cover but that's not what happens to barrows is it?

The builders' barrow, 40 years old and OH's favourite, is far too heavy for me even before it gets loaded. This may be due to the multiple layers of cement plastered inside and the extra bits of metal welded on to fill in the holes.

I have 2 'other' barrows which are 'well drained' .

we are a four barrow household because OH NEVER throws anything out
