Yes, any digging is accompanied by compost and sharp sand, you've got me on to another subject now,

Last years compost was really compacted in the bag, this year its loose, less for more again. The sharp sand is less gritty than last year as well

Morning fellow planters, I have been trying to find the name of a plant that I used to have in the garden. After searching the books I couldn't trace it........until I watched last weeks Gardeners World.

The lady in Abergavenny who grew fantastic sweet pea's had it in her garden.

Its about 24 -30 inches tall, grey stems, and small vivid red flowers, about an inch diameter.

Can anyone help with the name of this plant, I would be eternally plantable

Dont know if anyone has come across this problem I think I'm having. The fat ball feeder was recently partially robbed  by the squirrel the other day and since then  birds have not been feeding on the fat balls. I'm wondering if the scent is putting off the birds. I normally have loads of visitors during the day but I hav'nt seen any feeding? 

Grey Water

For the past 5 years I get my hoses attached to the washing machine waste water outlet and during the dry periods this grey water goes on the lawn and the flower beds. There has been no adverse effects. Only problem is, if a hosepipe ban was introduced I believe you would still commit an offence, ridiculus, isnt it

Talkback: Slug-proof plants

I have nt seen anybody talking about a slug killer/ repellent that I have started using....Salt. Particulaly at this time of year when the slugs and snails come out in their herds. I sprinkle it on them and even if they are on plants the salt sticks to them. I'm trying it as a barrier at the moment, i appreciate there the obvious drawbacks but its working for me
