Allotment Space Available (Sort of)

Make sure you get it all tied up legally, using a solicitor, or you may find you have sitting tenants unto the tenth generation.

It's not as simple as it appears.

Bee

Are you sure it is a bee?  It may be a queen wasp as that is the sort of place they like to have a nest.  I had wasps in one of my swift boxes one year and in a bird box another year.

Tarzan swing becomes stumpery!

I saw the stumpery at Highgrove, and it was just that - stumps.

It was where a large tree had been cut off low plus the large roots.  There was a whole pile of them, and pretty ugly they were.  Black.  Admittedly the whole thing was softened by ferns but it was something that did not appeal.

Have you tried putting it through the dish-washer?

I never put the stone in the compost heap.  They never rot down, so they go in the waste food bin for the Council to deal with.

Newbie vs Weeds

Anything that is not grass is broadleafed, whatever its shape.  That is how they differentiate them.  Some weedkillers can be used on broadleafed weeds, but will not kill the grass. Some weedkillers will kill everything.

It will say on the label.

It is a wild geranium/cranesbill.  Seeds everywhere.  A pest.
