Long Grass

Posted: 22/11/2015 at 05:57
Long grass should ideally be cut in perhaps July/August. When the seeds of wild flowers have matured and fallen. If you are going for a wild-flower area the grass should be raked off so the fertility of the patch is not increased.

Sounds like blight.

If you go for the 'Well I told you so' option, be aware as they are not gardeners, they will blame you not the aspect. And what about the time and energy you waste.

Why not attach a ring to the wall and let them practice goal scoring!

If it's as shaded as you say it's pretty well impossible. Is it a gardener who suggested it?

Water Butt Cleaning

Snap, DyersEnd. The water in a couple of the butts is several year's old, although fresh has also been added. Still beautifully clear and non-smelly.

The secret is to keep it well-covered at all times.

If you want to scrub a butt, empty and put on its side then it's easy.

Blackcurrants are more nutritionally valuable and easier all round.

What bird of prey would attack a skein of geese?

We have red kites over the house every day and they are pretty light-weight. Not sure they would attack anything; they are carrion-eaters like buzzards; except in the breeding season.

If you want to report anything such as joe47's dead peregrines or bird sightings there will always be a local wildlife group or bird blog in your area.

Just you wait until you bring in your 4 year old's stuff and he needs room to ride his bike!

IMO both bamboo (a dreadful spreader unless you chose the right variety) and palms look alien in an English garden. But that's only my opinion!
