Mulching

Posted: 19/10/2015 at 12:31

Did an experiment one year with hellebores....thick mulched some and nothing on others.  The mulched plants were later.

Gosh Runny, sorry to hear that.  Glad he is okish.  Scary tho I guess and a shock for you both.  Hope you both are recovering well 

You are right.....life can and does change in an instant.  I heard yesterday of a friend's son knocked down crossing the road.  Amazingly, apparently, he only had bruises and aches and pains.  It looks like he was very lucky.  

PROBLEM WITH MY BASIL?

Posted: 19/10/2015 at 12:16

Is there something fawlty with it Mark?  

Cant advise re basil but I'm sure someone can 

is it too soon to lift dahlias?

Posted: 19/10/2015 at 12:13

Not sure it's important that dahlias are blackened by frost.  I dont think it makes one iota of difference.  I lift when I want the space for something with no regard to frost

Worse than "dead" Punkdoc?  

Tied up tyre deal as well as hedgetrimmer replacement.  (Now someone else wants me to get tyre deal.....going to keep stum in future. )

saw some of the X factor last evening......it was just on as background....but what a CRUEL show. Saw 15 minutes or so and that was enough.  Like throwing christians to the lions.  contestants taking "chairs" and Cowel changing his mind raising and dashing their hopes in front of the audience, their families and their friends.  Surely there are much better programmes than this?  NASTY prog 

Moved abelia confetti this morning ....don't think there is a nicer looking variegated shrub.  Now sitting between purple heuchera and shrubby blue salvia.  Kniphofia Orange Vanilla there too.  Looks good I think 

had to share my fish just now....Spike giving me his sad hungry look . Its ok folks, no bones.....I had those

Hello Forkers

Dark morning but feeling pretty warm.  Dry and windless....and the weather's fine too .  Sun forecast again......yippee

Enjoy the heat there Pat.  

Raised beds

Posted: 19/10/2015 at 07:29

Welcome Leigh

hessian sacks will break down in less than a couple of years so sand will ooze out

you need to try and remove the rubble etc there though.  Is it impossible for you to do that? Clearing the soil and adding some compost is a better option for growing veg I think.  In a dry summer raised beds dry out very quickly.  raised beds aren't the solution  here.  Is your ground heavy or prone to waterlogging Leigh?
