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???

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...

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.

It may be slender but no good for wildlife.

You may be better-off planting something like teasels, or buddlia or cotoniaster or honeysuckle.

Probably abandoned. Most eggs are laid in Spring.

I just wanted you to establish whether the leaves were browning as a result of Autumn or lack of water. It has been very dry with us recently.

Quite normal, so long as they have enough water. They will hold the brown leaves throughout the Winter and cast them in the Spring
