Home made slow release fertilizer

Tomato fertilizer is really suitable for fruiting plants like tomato, cucumber etc. It is not designed for any old plant, That is just wasteful, though I use it double-diluted for house plants.

I assume you are feeding plants in pots,and baskets not in the open ground.

Look for lengths of corrugated plastic and add your own wires to hold it in place. They last for years.

Bees: How can we do more ?

Mr J is quite correct. Every product has a label. Read it thoroughly before you buy. And try not to be snarky to someone who states the obvious.

The easiest way to remove a shrub from a pot is to put the pot on its side and roll it back and forth while easing it out, holding the trunk.

It is recommended to take out one third of the flowered branches every year. In that way the bush is renewed every three years.

If it is genuine York stone, why would you bury it?

Amazing Encounter

Old badgers take lambs too. Don't feed them, it tempts them to cross roads and puts them in danger.

Their eye-sight is very bad, so it may not even have seen Buttercupdays.

When we were on the farm OH was cultivating the field and on each pass a vixen came out of the wood with her cubs to pick up worms as the tractor unearthed them. He was able to come back to the house and collect the children to see them too.

When I walked the dogs at dusk we often came face to face with badgers. I don't know who was more shocked; the badgers or the dogs!
