Talkback: How to plant rhubarb

Posted: 17/10/2013 at 08:55
I have been moving my rhubarb patch-a 3 year project and the last bit will move this Autumn. If anyone uses a Bokashi bin for waste food, the rhubarb loves the decomposed stuff.

I soak nettles like Flowering Rose does and I feed my tomatoes with about 50mls in I galleon of water. They make delicious soup when young. The buutterfies need all the help that we can give them. 

Talkback: Growing herbs

I grow a lot of herbs. Most of them freeze very well and are ready to use throughout the winter. If you buy the pots of growing herbs in the supermarkets, the little plants can be carefully separated and potted on. They last a lot longer that way.

Talkback: Wet weather on the veg plot

The sweet peas are standing still. The weeds love the rain and are hiding the onions.

Talkback: Native plants for wildlife ponds

Posted: 20/04/2012 at 09:44
In ponds it is important to use native plants because some of the imported plants are invasive in the countryside and cause huge problems in ponds in the wild.
When you tidy your pond, native plants can go on the compost heap.
