Onions bolting?

Posted: 11/06/2017 at 00:16

If an onion has bolted do not attempt to store it, and use it first.

When they are ready to be pulled the roots will let go too.

Babies nappies in compost

I have scrolled back to Edd's post.  Vehement, but not rude.  Except to a very sensitive soul.

Amazing!! I had four children and only used one disposable nappy on a car journey as an experiment.  My goodness they are expensive. And I imagine they would fill up the rubbish bin.

Scaffold Debris Netting - does it block the sun by very much? Other options for birds?

Posted: 07/06/2017 at 00:39

We use debris netting for our strawberries and soft fruit bushes.  Both cheap and good, but squirrels bite holes in it. It lets sufficient sunlight through.

Kiwi Jenny - mislabeled plant?

Jenny, yes, but doesn't it come in male and female?  Take a look at UTube there's lots about kiwis there.

It is called the June Drop.  Totally natural; the plant sheds apples it can't support or which haven't been fertilized.

Parsley seeds edible??

Unless they are sold for culinary use you cannot be sure they haven't had a seed dressing, which may be poisonous.

If they were specifically labelled for culinary use you are safe.

Over cut hedges

Posted: 31/05/2017 at 00:49

If you want to radically prune a bush, you are best to cut it almost to the ground.  As you have done it tufts will grow from the cut ends.  And very ugly it will look.

It will recover but please think twice and then again before you mutilate any more mature shrubs!
