Re: Raised Bed & Greenhouse

It the October edition of the magazine one of the tips for raised beds is use a liner to prolong life & improve water retention.

As my raised beds (18 inches high) will be on soil and I wonder if this is a good idea?

What are the strengths & weaknesses of using/not using the lining?

Re: Cloggies or "back door" shoes

Got a pair of those plastic glogs £2.99 which I hange on a screw attache dto the fence so water drains away.

These are only used for popping to the shed or wheelie bin.

Re: Garlic - Pot Ok?

Reason for planting now, is looking at instructions, they say plant now and the raised beds have not been made yet & probably wont be ready till end Nov.

Waiting till spring looks perfect for me.

Any suggestion on how to store the autumn garlic?

Thank you very much Pa Snip for your help.

See now is the time to grow garlic and there is an offer in the magazine.

Can I put these into a pot then transplant them in raised beds next year?

If pot is ok where do I put it outside or in shed?

Worms

As I understand it tiger worms (used in a wormary) will kill off normal garden worms.

So will normal garden worms be ok in a wormery and if so can you buy them?

Cress & Rape seed

Notice the cress I buy from the supermarket has 80% Rape seed & 20% cress.

Am I eating rape & cress or does the rape seed do something else like feed the cress?
