Hedge problem.

Posted: 01/09/2013 at 17:45

Maybe it can be cut right back to ground level.  Depending on the tree species it will sprout again.  Can you tell us what the species are?  Plus a photo.

Ash, hazel, sycamore will definitely sprout again if coppiced.

Require some help identifying a tree.

I think it would be a shame to prune a gingko.  Maybe wrong tree in that place.

Enough already!!  Give the guy a break!  If you all click on his posts you encourage him.  Just like clicking on the spammers.

We are starting to stray into bullying territory.

Have to say I've generally missed out on the hoohaa because that is the way I go. That is, I ignore his posts.

Talkback: How to store onions

Posted: 31/08/2013 at 12:35

They do look lovely strung up, but it is not necessary.  Onions store very well in plastic tray. Or in an old pair of tights if you want to hang them up.

Walls and Hedges

I call it a field boundary because that indicates its shape and form.  I appreciate it will be situated in a garden!

Can someone tell me what Pupa this is

Posted: 30/08/2013 at 17:47

I love butterflies, but I guarantee that thing will not hatch out into a butterfly or handsome moth.  It is not a chrysalis but a pupa of a baddie.

In general I am a conservationist in the garden and seemingly in the house as I had a bat flying around my head as I watched TV the other night.

Perhaps little weeeed can capture the next one and keep it until it hatches and tell us all what it is.

lob lob beans or hyacinth bean

I grew some last year.  The weather was just too cool and they came to nothing much.

Walls and Hedges

Three foot is way more than is normal for field boundaries.  If there is a good batter on the walls the base would be much more than 3 ft wide.

If I remember the roads agency had a frame which they filled with soil and then faced the banks with turf and planted on top.

Remember plants will grow and will be far cheaper than a high double stone wall.

May I suggest a little research on the internet.  Different counties have different traditional field boundaries and banks.

Garlic planting

Posted: 30/08/2013 at 15:54

I try to plant mine at half-term in late October.

Eat the ones that didn't divide, the best ones to plant are the biggest cloves from the outside of the bulb, but make sure they are single cloves and not double ones inside the same skin.

To be honest, although they are an expense, I am going to buy garlic for planting again this year because I have had an absolutely wonderful crop.  Ditto shallots.
