Talkback: Couch grass

Posted: 17/04/2014 at 18:24

I had couch grass in a big area of the garden of the house I live in when I moved in  13 years ago, it took me 4 years to dig it out.  Thankfully the soil was very light so could get rid of any bits that broke off.  I now have part of it as a veg garden and the other part has got edging slabs and is gravelled with my geranium (cranesbills) collection around it looks lovely all summer.  Have bought a new arbour seat to go there as I get the sun most of the day and evening.

It is Lily of the Valley, just looked at a plant in a pot in my garden this morning and it has now flowered and that is what it is.

They did have them for sale on Ebay.  I did buy one 4 years ago from there but lost it.

Rubble pile into flower bed?

I have lived in my property for over 13 years and am still digging up glass from milk bottles, nails, woods and all sorts.  Think the last people must have buried things over the years.

Seed Suppliers

I buy most of my seeds from Ebay, you can get all sorts of flower and veg seeds, never had any problem with buying them on Ebay.  A lot cheaper.  I like different tomato plants and they have a wider range than the seed merchants and garden centres. 

Homemade bug sprays

I do not use chemicals from shops, just washing up liquid in spray bottle with water for greenfly and like others have wildlife in my garden, the rest takes care of itself, pick off anything that is big enough.

I bought 3 blueberries and 10 raspberry canes and got free 50 butterfly gladioli bulbs in February.  They always have offers.


Best April Fool Gags

When I was sixteen, a long time ago, my cousin knew I fancied the butchers apprentice so he sent me for an elephant steak for his dog.  What a fool, god rest him he always got me.
