folks......membrane for paths.  Avoid it like the plague elsewhere.  

If you can see the worms under your fabric Busy I can only ask HOW?    the only area possibly exposed to air and sun and life is where plants are immediately planted 

 

Oh no.....NOT AGAIN

Strawberry mats are fine Aster though straw is supposed to be better. 

How can a certain plant website get away with charging so much !

If there is a special or certain plant you want, research it for price and size.  Then go for it wherever it is.

Arsenal have had their chances and blown them all.  They have some tough games to come and could lose them all. Man United are coming good, Spurs too and Man City.  leicester will make top 4 at least 

spring come to early

Bulbs that have flowered will not flower again this spring.  It will be a different look to spring I think.

those perennials not cut back and allowed to flower to this point .....many will have done....will not flower as well next summer I think.  They need a decent spell of resting and recovery to flower so profusely again.  

Wallflowers have some flowers but seem to be holding back just a tad with full blown flowers so I think they and stocks will give plenty of colour.  

Masses of crocus flowering now.......more than ever, unfortunately.  For me they are a weedy over rated "thing"

Fabric kills the soil Busy.   Not wildlife friendly/truly organic as birds are denied access to soil pests etc.  It prevents rotation of crops. A thick living mulch between rows is so much better on every count.

I have removed fabric on a number of occasions to reveal an awful looking wormless soil.  The plants growing through it mostly aged very quickly.  A turned over and forked in compost treatment has worked wonders 

we differ Busy!   But that's gardening

Dave, out of flower a lavendar hedge looks great when "uniform".  when it flowers it becomes loose and flowing......lovely then of course.  When my lavendar hedge has fnished flowering I take great delight in cuttng with hedge trimmer....top and sides....to create a nice silver/green edge
