Epsom Salts

I use Epsom salts on all kinds of plants as a tonic.  Sometimes, in certain parts of my garden, Lupins get a little chlorotic.  A spray with Epsom salts and they're fine.  Tomatoes too

a safe and cheap boost to plants

bare soil

Jess, how about growing annuals in part of it  there?  It will look good, even mixed with weeds, and you can set about clearing it permanently in the autumn.

and sowing grass seed.  At least it will be green. ,get the area level and even and cut it regularly to eliminate perennial weeds. It will give you an idea too of how your garden might look in the future.

csrpets?  Ughhh!  Pests galore will be encouraged too. Green manure is over hyped for me.

Lovely day here.  Sun is very warm. No wind. Feels and looks like spring.  might just get another 4 rows of carrots in and some radishes. 

Pulled out a load of ivy yesterday on back wall and planted clematis there.  Looks a perfect spot for Armandii though.....South facing sheltered warm tempted by that.  Will consider other climbers first though.  

hope weather is good for you wherever you are 

Serious reminder folks....
