Narrow Garden Issue

A perching place, what's the point of that when you can plant something which will be of use to bees, or other insects or provide food for birds? For instance a wild cherry, rather than an ornamental cherry would be suitable. Elderberry would be suitable too.

Alders are pretty big trees. Have you thought of trained fruit trees along your fences?

I think you need to do some more research, and certainly ignore any tree that will grow to 10 metres!

Have you thought of selling them to your greengrocer or local deli?

Tree surgeons not getting to root of problem!

If it was verbal and you paid cash I think you will have to accept that it is up to the contractor whether he responds or not.

Write to him by all means, but you may have to put it down to experience and try to cut and remove the root yourself. You wanted it off the books (and presumably a 'special' price), so I'm not surprised you are getting the run around if there is more work to be done.

Electricity Pole

Have you asked the electric company if they will move the pole? They will charge, but it is an option. Do they pay you a Wayleave for the pole?

The Prunus that is pictured will be of no use to wildlife.

Garden full of rubble and weeds - can we go grow veg?

Posted: 23/09/2014 at 20:39
Vegetables can go in raised beds, then they will mostly be above the rubble.

expensive???

Posted: 23/09/2014 at 20:37
You don't say the size of the lawn, but ??240.00 for three visits seems rather expensive.

Advice needed

Aren't you allowed to leave unharvested crops in the soil until they are ready?

But, yes, you can harvest them now. When you dig the potatoes leave them on the soil for the skins to dry out and 'set' before you store them. The leeks will be fine to eat, just a bit small.

Wow, what a sunset!

Even better, last evening we were travelling due west for two hours so we had wonderful views of the whole sun, until it set. It was a huge disc of orange, in an orange sky.

It's the Equinox today.

Growing grass paths...

Posted: 23/09/2014 at 13:40
Grass paths also get muddy and slippery if you use them in wet weather. They have to be cared for, ie. strimmed or mown, and they get weeds in them, and they are a good place for slugs and snails to hang out.
