Wow! That really is a mountain! What's happening with it all?! Not like you can just accidently drop it over the other side of your garden fence  And I hope you haven't drunk all of that Clarington, I'll get you a leaflet for Alcoholics Anonymous!

Haha! I have gone into crisis mode, going to a posh do at the weekend and have literally no 'nice clothes' even my jeans have grass stains on them! Me thinks a trip to primark may be in order. Can't afford decent clothes, all my money's gone on seeds and seed trays!

They obviously think mud and dirt out people off gardening, but the truth is, nearly all of us have clothes with holes in from the attack of the bramble, pollen all over our clothes and in our hair from passing plants, soil stuck like cement to out footwear and all up our trousers, it's really not glamorous!

Planting for gravelled areas

Stipa tennuissima, agave, ophiopogon nigrascens, borage, fennel, lavender and echinacea I can think of off the top of my head, but as salino says, verd would be the man for that

Garden girl, are you on an old waste site or something, they seem some really interesting finds! I'm jealous, all I get is old beer cans left over from my alcoholic grandad! I know what I'd rather find

But bare in mind that plants with waxy leaves will usually take a lot longer to break down, compared to most natives and thinner leaves plants.

Just had a thought, that's going to be a hugeeee pile of soil your digging, what's happening to it? That's an amazing opportunity to build a bank to separate you garden into section

Does sound fun indeed! Can I join in?

Lodes not look like that anymore buzy, being drained at the mo, can't wait to see the finished result! 

Gardengirl, how random, I too have no idea, but would probably screw it above the door on my shed, or on a wall where I would see it nearly everyday 

Good luck Panda! I'm terrible at making things, so if I have to do dinner it comes straight out the freezer, and into the oven. I try to avoid things that need microwaving, as blew up our nice new microwave a few years back. Nobody told me that you couldn't put tins in there!
