How do you scarify a hedge?  New one on me.

Removing Slabs; Putting down a Bed

If you leave the slabs or concrete there and either punch holes in them or cover with soil I guarantee you will always be dissatisfied with the result.  Get rid.

Best place to get Topsoil (High Wycombe)

Check out Jewsons or Wickes.  Beware of cheap top soil offers; very often it is stoney, root infested or sub-soil.  Or just put 'top soil' into Google.

Rather odd suggestion to drill holes in the sheets in the link.  Why?  Many years ago there was a diagram in a RHS manual of a former for making wire hoops to hold the sheets down.  No drilling, no fixing long lengths of wood to the sheets.

I just use an old roofing slate on the ends.

Posted: 15/05/2013 at 20:17

Cherrypea give it another chance.  This year's blossom was formed last year.  Do you remember what a rotten summer it was?  No doubt the tree got as much water as it needed, but sunshine?  No it didn't.

See what it does next year before you chuck it.

That's T&M for you.  That's why I no longer buy anything from them.
