App for garden design

I look online for ideas and then sit in the garden and visualise how I would like it to look, might take me a while to get it right in my head but I do in the end.

Too many worms?

Ice, I could have done with all your worms over the past few months.  Had a badger digging up the bottom of my garden which I had re done last year for worms.  Love wildlife but was a bit miffed after all my hard work last year.


Low inflation I think not

I have noticed that supermarkets say they have dropped prices but put other things up to recoup for the dropped prices.

Thanks for the advice.  Would have got back to you all sooner but not had any internet as there have been problems in Essex.

I have left mine in the pot in the greenhouse over the winter from the moment I have put them in the pot.  They come back every year without fail.


Moss in flower beds.

Hi, any ideas how to get rid of moss in flower beds ?. 

I have decided to bark all my flower beds as I do not have the power in my hands or arms in which to keep forking over my beds and want to minimise the work in my garden. 

I have Spondylosis of the neck and I am finding it difficult to do some parts of gardening.  I want to make sure I have got rid of all the moss before barking as it will start clinging to the bark and do not want to have to replace it every year because of it.

Any ideas would be helpful and much appreciated

I have been growing them for years after going to Beth Chatto's Garden in Elmstead Market.  I also grow them from seed which is a joy and they germinate so easily.

Berberis is a good hedging shrub with barbs, it is reddish in colour and yellow flowers in spring.
