hot composting

You are making me re examine my own composting methods David.  I think I've gotten a bit lazy....good compost takes some effort clearly.

Lily-of-the-valley where do you grow yours?

Yes Edd, I have had pink too.  Same solution though...getting rid.  However, good idea to grow them in pots ......hadn't thought of that 

keeping a small contained group of both white and pink....for sentimental reasons

They need good soil, some moisture and time to develop.

howevever, for me they are not wanted.  They do spread and do so aggressively

To cut everything down, or leave.

Nice post Gemma 

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

Posted: 24/11/2014 at 12:06

Made my own few years back.  Galvanised iron and cemented in.   Looks good and will last forever

got 2 honeysuckles over it and the scent in summer is a delight

Lovely day now

wot r people like?  A new Asda store opened here this morning.  A mile long queue, people fighting for parking spaces and all for products we can all get elsewhere.  So many people...don't they work or have better things to do?  () Anyway got my bargain pizzas, free tea n biscuits and free draw but declined the balloon.
