Edging my lawn - what to do with the cuts?!

Posted: 30/08/2014 at 00:11
Or you can put the off-cuts in an old plastic sack; seal it and leave it to rot down for six months and you will have some loam.

What is this plant?

Can you describe the flower? If it seeds freely, what does the seed pod look like?

Potatoes MUST be stored in paper or hessian or other light-excluding material. Never in plastic, Keep them cool. Commercially they are stored at fridge temperatures, but most of us do not have big enough fridges.

Beware listening to the advice given by 'Someone,' often it is wrong!

Talkback: How to plant gladioli corms

When they are completely dry dig them up and store for next year. In some well-favoured places you can leave them in the soil. It is up to you whether you keep the little bulbils which eventually become flowering size, but be a nuisance in the intervening years.

Acer, sycamore or maple? All the same family but each is different. Can you find your tree in an on-line catalogue?

It does sound like mildew.

If they are kept well-trimmed they are fine; but boring!

It's not the hedges that are aggressive. It's the people that plant them and then don't care for them.

Freezing corn on the cob.

I think you have to cook them from frozen. Don't defrost them first.

Also remember the only product that is improved by freezing is ice cream. Nothing else improves.
