Rotovate new build garden

Posted: 14/08/2015 at 02:05
Sorry, don't understand 2. If you have removed all the weeds/ grass, what are you weed-killing?

If you are going to rotovate ensure there are no perennial weeds in the soil otherwise you will just chop them up and multiply them. Docks, couch grass.

That is also rather poor soil, make sure you examine the screened top soil very thoroughly, there are some rogues selling it.

They grow and grow and grow! And turn into marrows. They also stop cropping.

Find a friend and offer them courgettes - for free! - if they'll pick them for you.

Yes, that is where heroin is produced from but not in the UK. You have been a victim of 'Mind over matter'!!

From your OP: don't worry about the ants. In some instances and with some seeds they spread them. They cause no damage.

Yes, you seem to have a promiscuous couple of plants, whatever they are.

If they are really 1 metre apart, they are far too close. They grow into trees.

Badgers are also death to hedgehogs.

What is this pesky plant/weed/tree?

Do we have to guess which plants we're talking about?

Sorry Fishy it wasn't a serious question. I spend time volunteering on an island where many of the top avian predators are naturally present.

It saddens me to see any of them in captivity, whether captive-bred or rescued. I know it is irrational but there it is!

So sorry, I'll pass on acquiring a bird of prey.

Just in passing - peregrines prefer a tasty pigeon.

Potential jam??

No need to prick them. Do it the lazy way. Put them in the freezer for a few days. When you put them in the gin the skin will split and the gin will turn a lovely shade of pink/red. Don't forget the sugar!
