 that is nice to have the choice of a stunted growth tree

or let it grow as nature intended  and after two or three years offer it  as sapling tree to  the woodland trust

they will find it a suitable home, your gift to the future.

slugs in the lawn

Posted: 07/06/2014 at 09:28


the grass will improve when this rain finally stops.

the hedgehog, frog, black birds, starlings  and thrush,if you are lucky enough to have them,  will eat the slugs, if you don't poison them !

with so many chemicals being used by gardeners it's no wonder we have so little wildlife                                    

         please think of nature

hi LW

does it have drainage holes? a wire cage is usually used

to allow rain to run through. otherwise they will be a wet mush!

proven they are still dangerous days later.

Pound Shop Lupins

Hi jack 3

good luck with your lupins, please remember if you resort to ( slug pellets ) use them sparingly.

If you have the  thrush, blackbird, frog, toad, or hedgehog in yr garden, they are all at risk from this terrible product.


Compost question

Posted: 23/02/2014 at 18:40

If the garden has been flooded , then the compost would have been soaked from the bottom of the bin up.

And what are the dogs looking for?  no food should be put in composter only green stuff from the garden and raw veg kitchen waste.  

unless they eat worms.    yuck
