Good for acid lovers, such as camellias, rhodos and azaleas, to help them absorb nutrients.

Landscaping Fabric

Posted: 31/05/2015 at 12:59

If all you ever want to do from now on is walk on these paths there is no reason why fabric is not a good option. Without it perennial weeds such as docks and dandelions will continue to appear and are deep rooted. Eventually your gravel and the soil will start to mix and you will have an unholy mess that you will find difficult to sort out. Fabric will not mean you are weed free but it will keep the situation manageable.

Cardboard would delay the problem but only for a while.

If you ever wanted to get rid of the paths in the future you could scoop up the gravel, remove the fabric and dig the soil over.

You could use bark instead, over fabric.

Hi, butting in again..... wet here so compiling list of jobs to do before the Open Day, 2 weeks today. Mostly weeding and a bit of planting. Cool nights, loads of new planting and choice of plants probably means the day is coming a bit too soon for garden to be at its showy best. However really looking forward to it.

Perhaps you are paying for "smallness" ?

I went yesterday, and had a wonderful time. I agree the changes were for the better. The floral Marquee was exceptional ... we are so lucky to have such fantastic growers to patronise.

I like your style Dove... knee 'em in the groin and then go hoe and make a meringue...cool.

A good crab apple is Malus Evereste. A good garden tree, masses of white blossom after pink buds, Autumn foliage and crabs for the Blackbirds. A favourite of mine. I have 3!!

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
