Re: Broccoli

We have club root on our plot and we have managed to grow fabulous broccoli by starting them in the PT and growing to a strong plant before planting out in a large hole filled with garden compost and a shake of lime. We have been growing them like this for three years and have had real success. We ...

Re: Late for hedgehogs?

If you are seeing the hedgehog out during the daytime it is likely to be having problems and if you can I would take it to a wildlife sanctuary or contact the RSPCA.

Re: I've been hacked!
