Talkback: How to make a wooden planter

Posted: 28/06/2013 at 12:57

Re above description, I will start again, I made two of these planters, however, I should had mentined that each planter was half filled with the polystyrene packing peanuts and then the planter was filled with compost, I hope this has cleared up the confusion.

Made two of these, one for the front garden and the other for the back. The front garden had an inspection lid for a drain, so this beauty covered it perfectly. The back garden was filled with packing peanuts, these are small pieces of polystyrene which is used as protective packaging, a nice layer of compost and loads of Sweet William plants. My first Grandson was born, and he is named William, the planters look fabulous, thank you for such a great idea and a brilliant addition to our garden.

Talkback: Aphids

Posted: 11/05/2013 at 09:23
It's really difficult to get the right balance, trying to be chemical free but when the aphids have taken over everything, my patience is starting to wane and I am tempted to go down the Chemical Warfare Road, however, I may have a solution, which may be a blessing for me and a pain for the Aphids. My next plan of attack is to bring home some of the coffee granules from the coffee perculator in work and then add that to the base of my plants, and then add coffee to my spray and douse the aphids with it. If I hear them asking for Latte or an Americano I will give up!!

Ice cream.yummy, I prefer warmed rhubarb, made into a compote, or stew,  with the addition of brown sugar and a light touch of ginger.
