Climber to cover large wall

Posted: 03/08/2012 at 15:31

If I were you I would clean the wall with a pressure washer before you do anything.

Anybody that suggests Russian Vine needs a severe kicking. It is a terrible thug and your neighbour will not be pleased.  Ivy is not a good choice either.

Lucky you with T&M; I have vowed never to buy their seed again because it is so expensive and not very good at germinating.

Ammonia mix.  Do you have Ammonia to hand?  Sounds a complicated method to me.

Scatter them on the road and let the cars do the squishing.  A case of the quick or the dead.

Gracie, I'm not sure blackbirds eat snails.  Thrushes do, but I've noticed they are particular about the kind of snail they eat.

On the other hand, I want a pair of Oystercatchers for my garden; they are ace snail hunters!

Plant ID... is it a wee?

And the berries are poisonous.

When you say the garage backs on to your property, does that mean it is not your building?  If it does not belong to you do not plant anything on it; certainly do not attach trellis or wires to it.  If you do it is tresspass and the owner of the wall might have something to say about it, especially if your plant obstructs the guttering or climbs up on to the roof or round the sides.

By all means plant shrubs in front of it, but otherwise do not touch it if it is not yours.

Can anybody tell us what these flowers are

Look like common-or-garden dasies.

Today they have been very active and noisy around our house where we have some nesting.

Linda, what kind of onion sets.  Are they for Spring planting, in which case it is too late, or are they for Autumn planting, in which case it is a bit early.

Or are they just some sets that have been lying around for months?

how best to reclaim poor land

I get the impression you are planning to reclaim neglected land, but do you know you have to get planning permission to extend a garden on to agricultural land.

I appreciate that most people that do it do not obtain permission and sometimes they are very surprised when they are told by the authorities to return it to agricultural land; or in your case, scrub.
