What a wonderful idea. I'll see if there's a local group near me who would benefit.

Re: Composting in containers or direct in the ground

I am going to try this. I do have a productive heap at the bottom of the garden but there are two tubs right by the back door, containing a blackcurrant bush and a Daphne. They will be the recipients of organic material over and above their normal once a year feed from now on. Save me a trudge to th...

I love Beechgrove and I'll be sorry to see Jim go - but he's earned his retirement.

Good information here from Marshalls - Enjoy the tropical flavour of kiwi fruit and free yourself of the chore of removing the furry skin associated with regular kiwi fruit.

Re: Rubber Trays

Our local garden centre has a huge bin where you can take your pots. And help yourself to any of the containers that have been put in as well. I've gained at least 4 nice big planters whilst donating my little pots too.

Re: Happy Easter!

Just fitted an extra water butt - just in case we have another heatwave. Trying to plan ahead and cut down on the number of pots to water. It's not working, btw - due to lack of self control whilst visiting the garden centre.

That Monty....

....has inspired me to send off for the special offer of banana plants from GW website. There was a stunning tropical garden on his programme last night. I quite fancy creating that look.

Re: When it all gets a bit a struggle

I sympathize.....I have done away with two of our borders altogether and just squished everything together. It's a big relief to me and more manageable.

Re: Black Hole

Good question. And if it's not there, where has it gone to. And what's on the other side?? (my head hurts just trying to imagine).

Re: my experiment

I can't quite remember how long we were asked to stand and watch - only about 10 mins or so, - for a couple of weeks. It was something to do with growing flowers and plants with colours that the bees prefer - to assist the bee population in the future. Our bees seemed to prefer the red dahlias - at ...
