Will a garden get the same amount of sun each year?

Posted: 27/01/2017 at 10:33

8 hours of sunlight on which day?


It's the same every year, as Dove says, but it changes through the year. From least at the winter solstice (December) to most at the summer solstice, (June).

Are biodegradeable compost bags safe?

Biodegradable plastic?


It's in my mind that they break up but they never break down. I don't know if this is still true. Plastic is a product of the oil industry and not something I would put on my compost heap

I don't know how much trouble they are but when mature they will bear fruit if they're happy.

Help, my neighbours extension has spoilt my garden!

Your neighbour hasn't spoiled your garden, you can grow stuff in front of the fence. 


Don't let your anger and distress spoil the garden, that is a much more serious problem

Which seasons do the following plants grow?

Posted: 25/01/2017 at 15:26

woodland and forest are sort of the same but in my mind not interchangeable. Forest seems a much larger thing than woodland.


Heather is a moorland plant not a woodland one.


the flowering time I suggested for lemon balm is Ok but that's not a British plant either
