Ooops, Dove, didn't notice that!

Building a garden bed over cement plzzzz help

We made ours out of scaffolding boards, they are now 8 years old and showing no signs of rot. Used ones are cheaper if you can get them.

Here a couple of links that might be useful:

Oooh, Dove, thank you for posting that link. I obviously can't buy any from here, but has been a feast for my eyes, can hardly believe there are so many beautiful varieties of fuchsias! Am green with envy at your choice!

YOUR view of music over the years.

We must be a similar age, Mike, my music tastes are like yours, 50's, 60s, some 70's, not many 80's or 90s. Everything from Elvis to Andy Stewart!

I'm sure it will sprout soon, but I hope you've got it the right way up, the pointiest bit at the top!

Why not? Once the climbers are climbing up them, you won't see the rats' tails!

small trees to form an arch

Posted: 18/10/2014 at 17:46

How about a small laburnum arch? Just don't forget if you have small children that the seeds are poisonous, but children can be taught not to eat things!

You tell him, CGFI, I for one found the tips given very useful in case I have the same problem one day with my dog. Have noticed on several posts that he's doesn't seem to like animals, dogs and cats in particular!
