Moss

Posted: 14/02/2015 at 11:52
If you put it in the compost straight away, you will spread moss everywhere you put compost. You can put it in rubble sacks or old compost bags until it is completely, completely dead and then use the resultant soil in the garden.

All depends what kind of moss it is. We have it on paths and the drive. When it dries out the blackbirds rake through it for worms.

If you decide to start again you can get metal cradles to hold wooden posts off the ground to stop them rotting. Or you can use Metaposts.

But your current method sounds good enough if you have used pressure treated timber, buried it deep enough and you are willing to apply wood treatment regularly.

Do not feed them!

At Wisley they put a low electric fence in the vegetable garden to stop them eating the sweetcorn.

I have no choice but to have raised beds as I grow my vegetables on Tarmac.
