Look out for the bargains

I got to the GC yesterday just as they were bringing out trolleys marked FREE PLANTS? As I have a completely empty bed I got several.  I don't know if any will survive the winter, or if they are annuals,  but at least the bed looks better for the moment. 

Best sack barrow?

We got one from b&q about 5 years ago.  It cost about  £30 and has paid for itself many times over.  I wouldn't be without it. It's worth getting a metal one rather than a folding one, as the fold will probably be a weakness. 

Positive visualisation for the doc

Keep your chin up Doc & mrs Doc. Remember what goes around comes around. Thinking positive thoughts for you both.

I went to school with a boy called Nicholas Bottom.  I don't know what his parents were thinking giving him a name like that,  but, oh boy,  did he get some stick !

scarifier / raker

Posted: 05/05/2016 at 19:27

I scarified my small front lawn with a hand lawn rake and realised that it is becoming increasingly harder for me to do.  I am thinking about getting an electric scarifier and looked them up on the Internet. Most of the ones I have seen are classed as scarifier and raker.  What is the difference between a scarifier and a raker?

I can't get my head around this new site format.  I'm going to give it a rest for a couple of days,  then try again.  If I don't find it any better than it is now it will be good night from me.  

Take care all of you in case I don't 'see' you again. 

Dump/boundary/advice needed

Hi.  You could contact the council,  it is possibly causing a health and safety issue,  and  ( I hate to say it ) a possible rat issue.

Panda.  Well done. What was your time? 

Rigger gloves not gardening gloves

I had the same problem when I moved into my house,  just over 3 years ago.  We even found an upside down plastic pond liner buried in the soil.  

Keep at it, it will turn into gardening eventually.
