Alternative to usual shed roof felting

Posted: 16/12/2014 at 09:44

We have some of the roofing felt David K describes. It's very long lasting, undamaged after 10 years. Great for OH's store shed

But for looks I'd go for the cedar shingles. very attractive. 

Growing True Potato Seed

Would spuds produce a crop from seed within one growing season?

My other thought is that you would no longer have an heirloom variety. Named varieties won't seed to produce the named variety (just like any other cultivar)

Shredded branches as mulch?

I use it all the time, especially around shrubs. I feel moisture retention and weed suppression outweighs any loss of nutrients which can be replaced. 

Not so good around tiny plants, the blackbirds sling it around and smother them.

Very nice, I know it well. Artjak and I went there in September

I know some smaller private ones Dove, including some with large collections of named varieties. 21 Chapel Street Haconby is near Bourne. Is that the one?

I must renew my seaweed

It's a good one Topbird and maybe more people could get there. Don't discard it on my account.

It's the after dark driving that's the issue, not the mileage. I've never been good at that.

We need to start a thread for it nearer the time.

Looks nice

A long way though (for artjak and me)

I don't think we decided Topbird. Any ideas?
