Ye olde Probleme of Screening from Neighboursee!

Posted: 03/04/2016 at 14:02
Why are you worried about the back door? Do you imagine that your neighbour is REALLY interested in what you're up to. When I see my neighbour I wave at her in a friendly manner, maybe stop for a chat over the fence too.

Ye olde Probleme of Screening from Neighboursee!

I would avoid any planting which will make mowing difficult. Plants in a lawn look nice, but they are a pain.

I'm not sure what your problem is as you seem to have a good length of lawn for planting.

Don't plant out until after the last frost. You'll have to guess the date.

Green handed world has photographed the offending wall from, I would guess, upstairs which makes it look much more intrusive. If the poster could take some photos from ground level I think it would be easier to give advice.

The cure is to slip paper bags over the figs just before they are ripe. Secure with a rubber band.

It is no good trying to ripen them off the tree. They will never reach a state of luciousness.

Or you can drape fine netting over the whole tree. Scaffolding netting is too fine for wasps to get through.

Yew takes to shaping very well; think topiary. Yew hedges are trimmed in the summer, so do it whenever you wish. But if there are birds nesting in it you may not disturb them until the nesting season is over. July.

Advice on filling new raised veg bed

Posted: 22/03/2016 at 00:37
The whole point of a raised bed is that you never tread on it. Ever. It should be a width that you can stretch from either side to the middle to cultivate and plant out.

This makes it unsuitable for sprouts which like a compacted soil but fine for everything else.
