Have a fettle under the surface Dyers. I also put some sheets of news paper in which might have helped.

Thanks. I've been using compost making powder from Wilkos. I also put the odd garden worm in there (although I always feel a bit guilty about that - weird I know!)

i had four garden truggs full. Well worth doing. 

Compost success!

After three years of thinking I'll never get the hang of making compost, I dug over the compost bin to discover that under the dry top layer there was rich lovely compost! What a treat! 

The compost bin doesn't get much sun; is that perhaps why it's taken so long to break down? I didn't spot any worms - I thought there would be lots in there.

I have spread it across a new bed and also into my raised veg beds with some left over to put in the greenhouse bed. 


 


 And the dry stuff on the top......

Hi Tandy, you could make the bed a bit higher although it would take a lot of soil. Failing that you could pop some obelisks in to grow things up. 

Watering can issue....

Spirit vinegar - is that the same as white wine vinegar??

Hello

just popped in from outside to ask if anyone has any tips on how to get rid of the green slime that builds up inside watering cans and then blocks the spout as it peels off? I cant get my hands in to scrub it off.

Thanks

 

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

Yay! Yep please do join in Korno.

Chicky and Victoria Sponge - glad yours arrived too. All looking good so far. Good consistency of quality then.

I really enjoyed it. Loved the nice mix of gardening and the lovely doggies. Best 30 minutes of my week.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Dug out some turf and put in three rhubarb crowns. 

Dug nice circles around the trees in the lawn. Applied chicken pellet manure and top dressed.

Dug over the raised beds.

Split some snow drops.

Beaten by the light, but can hear the birds chirping loudly. Such a lovely spring day.
