B&Q M/P compost offer

Posted: 03/04/2015 at 18:15
I would be very wary if it is B&Q compost. I returned some bags two years ago because they were such rubbish. Their technical bod contacted us and they gave us a measly few plants as recompense as well as giving us our money back for the compost, but not of course for the wasted time and seeds.

what licence to sell produce do I get?

Tomsk, no; what I am saying is that if you designate a specific room as an office, when you sell your house the office might be liable for CGT. You're fine if your 'office' is used for other purposes too. Eg, dining-room, spare bedroom, sitting-room, kitchen, whatever.

James, you did not mention that you are in the USA. We are in the UK. Very different, I should imagine.

Do you not have this kind of forum in the USA?

Ryan, it's only just April; give them time. Lots of things have poor pollination before they get into their stride.

Yes, certainly. Just poke the cuttings in the ground where you want them to grow.

Sunburn. Usually where there is water on the leaves in strong sunlight. And peppers rarely need watering every day. Treat them hard!

The top picture looks more like it has been nibbled.

As an update on my released butterfly. The next day when the weather got bad, it was battering on the door to get back in!

As far as I know people are responsible for both sides of their own hedge. Most neighbours, if you ask, will allow you to come into their garden to cut your hedge. And clean up the clippings.

Jimmy, have you ever consulted a solicitor? It's the quickest way I know to make a rich man poor. I speak from experience, and I would never contemplate doing it over a tree, however much it annoyed me.

Frankly it would be cheaper to move house.

how deep rooting are courgettes?

I grew sweetcorn in my raised beds last year. Depth about 12 - 16 inches. They were amazingly good. Never had such a good crop.

I only have raised bed to grow in. All on Tarmac.
