Reducing the Noise from Road

Posted: 07/01/2014 at 00:22

I would suggest you also visit the house at night, before you buy and see what the noise is like. Park in the road and listen. Will you be able to stand the noise when you have the windows open in the summer?  When you want to be in the garden?

Hedges (much better at filtering noise than walls) are a possibility, but they do take time to grow and thicken up.

Can you tell us why you want to cut the leader of the tree?  It is often not a good idea.

I conversely make a hole with the dibber, drop the plant in, then water the whole row of planted leeks, washing the soil in.

If the pots are clustered it makes it easier to throw some protection over them.  Perhaps they just needed to add that to make sense of the tip!

Identifying orchard tree varieties

Also Apple Days are held all over in the Autumn.  The Orange Pippin site is good for pictures and also the Brogdale site. 

My Runner/ Broad beans

Runner beans can be sown as late as June for a good crop, so sadly you are half a year too early.

Japanese Knotweed

There are injurious weeds which it is an offence to have growing on your land.  Councils should get rid of them from road verges, but they don't.

I suspect Carol is mis-identifying what is in the florists' flowers.

Garlic wars!

If you can start onion sets and garlic cloves in modules in the greenhouse, then they have well developed roots before they go out.
