How do I get a Tree Preservation Removed?

Posted: 18/12/2014 at 20:35

I recently bought a piece of land in a residental road.  The land is just scruffy woodland and has not been managed or kept tidy and here dont appear to be any beautiful trees. I wanted to plant my dream garden on it as I live in rented accommodation and longed for a garden of my own.  Before I even got started the local residents wrote to the Council and got a Preservation Order put on the whole of my plot.  The Planning Officer has given until Christmas Eve to appeal. What on earth can I do as I spent my life savings on a plot that is useless unless I can get this removed?

Ladybirds

Posted: 27/10/2014 at 11:34

My home has turned into a ladybird hotel over the last few weeks.  There are clusters of them forming in corners of my porch and kitchen.  They are all piled up on top of each other and look like they are here for a sleep over.  I was going to buy a ladybird box but noticed that these have lots of separate little holes.  I assume one hole for each ladybird to hibernate in.  I guess they actually like to all sleep together judging by the clusters of them.  Some clusters have about 20 ladybirds in.  Not sure how I can move them?  Dont want to put them outside as it might kill them.  Any ideas?

Linseed is different from flaxseed grown for fibres

Posted: 19/10/2013 at 20:19

Most people say that Linseed and flaxseed are the same thing.  There is a farmer who grows Linseed for its oil and says the flaxseed plant is about 3 ft high and grown for long fibres.  The Linseed plant is about 1 ft high and produces lots more flowers and seeds.  Does any one know the latin name for the variety to grow Linseed?

My poor rhubarb has collapsed!

Posted: 18/04/2013 at 20:59

My poor new rhubard plant was planted last year in a huge tub of fresh Miracle Grow.  It grew a few shoots then the leaves turned orange and the whole plant collapsed.  This year it has sent up new growth and is starting to do the same.  Is this some kind of disease?  It has the Award of Garden Merit for performing well but something has gone very wrong!
