Anyone done any gardening today?

As soon as you said Tyne and Wear Victoria Sponge my brain read the rest of your post with an accent! My mums side is from Hartlepool and I love their accent. We make my Grandma say certain words just to hear it at its best. The Nottingham accent doesn't sound nearly as soothing!  

Glad to hear your fence is mended. 

 

Great Way of Making Some Money Out of this Hobby?

Great idea Paul. Good on your mum too. I love the idea of an honesty box. I always go out of my way to buy from houses selling from the garden gate.

Compost bin....again

 Hi Sammy, I have one of the beehive ones. It looks really nice, but I haven't had much success with it on the compost front. However, i think this is due to the fact that it doesn't get much sun in the position it's in, rather than there being anything wrong with the design. I like the ease of the lid on it. I thought about painting it, but once you start that it'd probably need doing every year or so to keep it looking nice. No regrets with it.

I've often wondered if those nematodes work. Prefer the idea of a beer trap though!

Pricey blooms on St Valentine's day

Happy St Valentine's Day folks.

Walking through Victoris Station to see the flower stall selling red tulips for £9.50 for 3! Blooms that is, not bunches!

Some lovely happy faces on the journey home of ladies and gents carrying bouquets. 

Love is in the air! 

Can you compost ferns?

Posted: 12/02/2015 at 20:41

It's either ferns or firs, but one of them is good for acid loving plants. If you cut it up small and sprinkle it around the base it might do them some good. I'm sure someoneon here will know.

I've stuck some in the ground before and they did come albeit small. Perhaps it's a tad early for ones outdoors just yet.

Woops!

I've discovered it's not just plants. A slice of chocolate tart just fell into my chops! 

Lawn looking poor

I think so baza. Normal to have some moss now too. It'll perk up in the spring.

Hi Elderberry

Try Rhino - they are probs one of the best for a combination of sturdiness and value for money.
